I've Been Free For the First Time

Since U Been Gone

This song is shaking my world like a California muslide. And not the kind your kid sister drinks either. Every day my obsession with this songs multiplies like malware. I have now officially added it to my hard drive and play on repeat, I wait, like meth heads wait for jethro to finish the batch, for that cool Breeders style opening bass riff to break into the estatic chorus where Clarkson lets rip and the bubblegum production begins to pogo. It makes me care about music again! Am I sick? I mean I have a new 60's psych record by the band Gandalf that I just bought sitting right hear in a bag next to me but I just want to hear this 3 minute fun park ride. This spunky Texan maybe has some "it" power that I keep reading about in the pages of Star Magazine and US Weekly. Listen, I despise Anerican Idol and their Kings Dominion stage show act as much as any card caring music snob, but at least this dynamo proved her stuff in a talent show rather than be annointed pop music star by that creepy Simpson Dad or the Disney Channell.

I tell you what, and will fight any man, woman, child in a frontier mountain man eye gauging, ear bitin wratling match to prove it, Clarkson is sure more catchy and intresting than Jet. I love her affected voice, when she moans "yeah yeah" it drips with teenage lust, and isa fuckin rock and roll song already not some simpy warmed up rnb, or depressinly agro testes fest like most of the ham fisted boy rock bands that dot the map like starbucks.

I mean I have been so sick about this that I have been scouring the net looking for other critical praise (and finding it by the way...) download other songs of hers, and DVRing her appearance on the Today show where she does a bad ass stripped down full band acoustic version of Since U Been Gone (I'd like to see that doppleganger Ashlee Simpson do that). What is happening to please.....come save me.....

Your in Bubblegum maddness,
