REPOST FFROM: PRETTYMUCHAMAZING
When I first heard Kelly Clarkson’s “My Life Would Suck Without You,” I wasn’t really feeling it. Embarrassingly, that has changed — like complete 180, people. And I blame Dr. Luke! That guy has a knack of writting THE MOST infectuous pop tunes (Kelly’s “Since U Been Gone,” Britney’s “Circus,” and Katy Perry’s “I Kissed A Girl”). I guess, more than anything, I was upset with the musical direction Kelly was begining to take… I sort of expected a Pink-ish return (a la “Sober” or “Who Knew”). But why should I have expected a Pink copycat? [A Nickelback copycat] Something semi-original works fine.
Maybe it works more than fine, because “My Life” has done something a pop-juggernaut like “Since U Been Gone” has never been able to do: go No. 1. Not only that, but skyrocketing to No. 1 in style! According to Billboard, Kelly Clarkson jumps 96 spots to the penthouse (97-1), beating out Britney Spears’ old-record breaking 96-1 jump. This is the 21323rd time this record has been broken in the last 6 months. Someone needs to jump 100-1 already so there cant be anymore “Record Breaking Jump!!!”-stories. But good going Kelly. Welcome back (or welcome back to Top 5 single land — yeah, My December never did that — HA!). This single alone guarantees Kelly’s new LP, All I Ever Wanted a number one spot! That and also the fact that her only competition the week of March [17th is Lionel Richie] 10th is Chris Cornell and fellow Idol winner Taylor Hicks (who along with Rubin Studdard, shame the American Idol title). So congrats in advance, Kelly!
