It was a #1 song for eight weeks, until it got dethroned by you know what. This song is so quiet and cool, it's hard to believe that Top 40 radio embraced it. Then again, a good xylophone solo makes for good radio.
The song, which sounds like a pretty good Sting impersonation, is both angry and heartbreaking. So well crafted. Such a big pop hit. Kimbra, who does look and sound a little like Katy Perry in this video (but is NOT Katy Perry) is a fantastic add to the song and a great new talent that I think we'll be seeing more of on this blog.
