So, yeah. I grew up listening to alternative music and generally kept my pop love on the DL because, you know, it wasn’t cool to love O-Town or the odd Celine Dion song. But I’m gonna be forty before we know it and I’ve got no cool left to lose. And thus I will tell you that I absolutely love these songs. Not even ironically. Full-on love them.
While I love the first two, I’d give them both up to listen to “All Too Well” on repeat forever, frankly. I wish I could find a quality version of it on YouTube, but this is the best I can do. Her Grammy performance of it was pretty good, if hoarse, in my opinion. I almost posted it, but I prefer the album version.
