The high point comes when she contemplates forgiving a hater, then bursts into an incredulous guffaw.

Finally, at a pivotal moment she stands up in front of everyone and protests the impending union. Luckily the guy is cool with it, so we get a happy ending! Mostly for better. The way the whole song starts and stops is an obvious trick, but I like it. In just her second album, she and Rose gave us this clear-eyed look at the emptiness of symbolic gestures, allegedly finished in a mere 45 minutes. Almost left off the album, but saved thanks to Shonda Rhimes.

Here, we go from Kelly Clarkson verses to a roller-coaster chorus to a dubstep breakdown that dates the song as surely as radiocarbon — then back again. Good to see you? Never mind that Red had its own sugary singles. Docked ten or so spots for the spoken-word bridge and cheerleader breakdown, which might be the worst 24 seconds of the entire album.
The exuberance of the lyrics is matched in the way she tumbles from line to line into the chorus. Accidents happen. But careers take hard work.

It's so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life. Save the grand gestures and romantic speeches for your reception; sometimes brevity is key! Just as you are.

In all the world, there is no love for you like mine. The best love quotes are those that nail your feelings in one sentence.
But at that point they'd already had five No. Brown is another legend who shockingly never reached the top spot. Reggae icon Marley still remains the face of his genre decades after his death. His songs remain popular around the world, but it took some time for his music to gain a following.
