The corporate music industry wins. I give up. I posted this song the day it came out here, and although I thought I had shared my views on this song, it must have been my internal lack of excitement for this song that stopped me from gracing this site with my thoughts. So here it goes:
It’s your formulaic Kelly Clarkson song. It starts with a light guitar riff, she sings softly, and by the end of the song you’d swear she’s about to tear a vocal cord. Rinse and repeat. Congrats to KC, may she continue to be nourished by the proverbial teet of Clive Davis. The man is a genius and possibly the biggest culprit of the homogenization of the music industry.
