Released: December 2004
Legend has it that Britney Spears and Katy Perry hit makers Dr. Luke and Max Martin started the process of writing this song by studying (and then ripping off) the low-ended, bass heavy guitar sound of The Strokes and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. The results are line-for-line authentic (the track begins like ‘The Modern Age’ played in a different key); whilst Clarkson’s vocals – steeped in the over-emoting Mariah Carey school (via American Idol) - sound both bruised but surviving and incredibly soulful. What should have been a slice of American schlock power-pop turned into a brilliant kiss-off, in any genre. (PE)
