I keep hearing this song at pole class. I finally went home and downloaded the whole album. It was really hard for me to pick just one song off of this album to share – I really like the whole thing! I actually knew a whole bunch of songs off of the album, I just didn’t realize they were all hers. I guess she was a competitor on The Voice, which I never watch so I didn’t know that until I did a little research on her.
The lyrics to her songs are surprisingly dark. If you just have it on as background music, you’d think you are listening to some lighthearted pop music. Which is what I thought since it was usually playing as background music at the pole studio. Her voice is really beautiful, so if you aren’t paying attention to what she’s saying the songs just sound pretty and fun. Her songs have titles like, “Sippy Cup” (the lyrics for that are pretty cray) and “Mrs. Potato Head”. Your initial reaction is that there isn’t too much depth there. Give them a closer listen, and something tells me this young lady had a tough childhood.
She looks insane in the video, but the song is great:
Check out Mad Hatter, Sippy Cup, Dollhouse, Pity Party, Mrs. Potato Head…I just had to stop myself or I would have listed every song on the whole album!!
Melanie? Dark lyrics? Yay or nay?
