I didn't really think much of her either, but I was kind of taken by surprise how much I liked her vocals, having not really given them much attention previously. Especially that AOL session for What the Hell, it occurred to me just what a tricky song that is tonally. I suppose I was on a vocalist binge last week, so parsing apart what makes a style unique is interesting to me. Especially when it comes to work I kinda just brushed off as meh prior to this point without really giving it a good listen.I've never really loved any of her songs, but I do like the lyrics in that one.
Won't you take me by the hand
Take me somewhere new
I don't know who you are
But I'm with you
Anyways, I don't really buy the whole "selling out" criticism, per se, and I like Avril more for her vocals than the writing, exactly.
Anyways, I might PM in a bit... I'm getting sushi, but I'm have somewhat mixed feelings about some work stuff that's like, sorta ick, but I can see where it's coming from.
May post more unless I forget.
Also... short people rule I think Avril and Hayley Williams are like 5' 1".
