Single Review: “Come On Over” by Jessica Simpson

May 29, 2008

So it has finally happened. Foretold by her connection with Willie Nelson, her remake of “These Boots Are Made For Walkin'”, her part as Daisy Duke in the Dukes Of Hazzard film, and her own comments at several public events, pop star Jessica Simpson has released a country single. To start off credit must be given where credit is due. Simpson does manage to produce a slightly more country sound that actually sounds a lot better than anything she has ever done before, because it sounds pure and untainted. However, this is the only credit this song really adds.

Other than that the song really doesn’t stand out at all. It reuses the name “Come On Over”, formerly the title of a Shania Twain hit, which could have given it a little shine, but when you finally hear it you realize there really isn’t much to it at all. We find Jess explaining to a guy the steps to take and then to come over her house once these orders are done. This is a relatively new outlook on romance, but there’s no feeling or anything behind it and even the fun and enjoyable aspect of the whole thing is weak. Sure it’s a fun listen the first 1 or 2 times and it brings out a more pure side to Simpson’s vocals, but after the amazement of hearing it for the first time and realizing that Jessica Simpson has finally gone through with her goal and that she can actually sing without the help of a computer, there’s not much to it at all. To sum up this song in one word, I quote Simon Cowell…it is “forgettable”.

Grade: D+

    The song “these boots were made for walking” was sung before by Nancy Sinatra, Jessica Simpson definitely has a firmer looking body than nancys and she made her song a lot more sexier sounding.
