I've been meaning to listen to Kelly Clarkson's Piece By Piece album for so long so this is way over due but after seeing her on Idol the other week, I got inspiration to make the time to sit down and give it a listen. So here's my thoughts on each song:
Heartbeat Song: I've known this for ages! It's upbeat and fun to sing and has a nice beat!
Invincible: This song has been out for a while too but I've only listened to it a few times. I like when Kelly has slower songs as it showcases her voice, but I love the message behind the song. It may be on my "pick me up" playlist!
Someone: Slower than Invincible. Still has a bit of an up beat though!
Take You High: I've definitely heard this song before. I probably did not associate this with Kelly Clarkson. This album has more of a edm influence, like most music these days. I'm not the biggest fan of it only because I'm not a huge fan of the auto-tuney voice.
Piece By Piece: I love this song! When Kelly sang is slower, I definitely wept like a baby. This is the kind of Kelly Clarkson we all know and love.
Run Run Run: It sort of has the same feel as Piece By Piece beat wise, maybe a bit slower. Oh John Legend is in it. Kinda made me like it less...
I Had A Dream: Ya know I really like this. I love love love inspirational songs by Kelly. It's the mid-tempo kind of song that I will assume has a big build up for the chorus. Her vocals gave me chills so this gets a thumbs up from me!
Let Your Tears Fall: More upbeat than I Had A Dream. Another one of those "it will get better" messages that I just love.
Tightrope: A sad song. I think it's a breakup song..or a near break up song. There's a lot of emotion and i'm getting quite sad just listening to the lyrics...
War Paint: I think I've definitely heard this song before too...I'm pretty sure that Ulta plays the majority of this album and I just didn't realize it. I like the message of the song, it's a nice beat but it's not one that sticks in your head.
Dance With Me: As the title suggests, it's a dance-y song! I like it as I'm just in an upbeat mood at the moment.
Nostalgic: I really like this for some reason. It must be the mix of upbeat tempo and killer vocals. It's what Kelly does best.
Good Goes The Bye: It's one of those upbeat sad songs. I don't hate it..the instrumentals remind me of a video game tbh but I like the melody so I'll let it slide enough for me to still like it.
Bad Reputation: OMG THIS IS THE SONG I SING ALONG WHEN IT PLAYS AT WORK BUT I NEVER KNEW THE TITLE. THIS SONG IS AMAZING. MY FAVORITE SONG ON THE ALBUM BY FAR. It has that kick-ass vibe with that rocky beat mixed with amazing vocals and it's just magic.
In The Blue: I'm pretty sure I've heard this too or it sounds like another song from her. It's light and mid tempo and one of those "i cant forget you or forget Im supposed to forget you" kinda songs.
Second Wind: The last song on the deluxe album. Ohh I really like this beat for a last song. It feels like it will build up nicely and WOW I love the beat switch up! It's another one of the empowering songs that I love so it's not a surprise that I love this but it's just different somehow and I think I'll end up loving this one.
