Single Review: “Best Days Of Your Life” by Kellie Pickler

January 9, 2009

Every artist has an image at one point or another in their career that defines their basic audience, or the people they want to see at their shows. With Kellie she has made it pretty clear, between “Red High Heels” and “Don’t You Know You’re Beautiful”, that her target audience in women, young and old. This is no different in her latest attempt to crack the top ten, “Best Days Of Your Life”.

This is a tough song to rate here because part of me wants to like and respect it while the other part wants to throw it under a bus. Kellie has star quality and she has proven this time and time again. Her problem is that radio has yet to embrace her and she has yet to release anything that could jump-start her career as much as “I Wonder” did for her. The message of this song is in no way unique, with Kellie providing and upbeat and optimistic look at a breakup from the woman’s point of view. However, that doesn’t prevent it from being a decent, entertaining and quality song.

Sadly what does is that Kellie isn’t big enough yet to be throwing out a song like this. While it is catchy and entertaining, it doesn’t have that flawless quality of her ballad performances or her more out their offerings, which would be more likely to win over radio executives. She deserves a lot of credit for her bubbly personality and her entertainment quality as well as her seemingly uncharacteristic rough and tough persona throughout the song, but the song itself just doesn’t shine as much as it tries to. Basically what I’m trying to say is that the song is good, but it’s not a good as it needs to be, or, to steal from The Dark Knight, this is the hit Kellie deserves, but not the one she needs right now.

Grade: B

    Uh, Blue? Could you make that pic just a little bigger? Afraid my eyesight is gettin’ poor so I could use a few more pixels there.

    Like about half the front page maybe? 😉

    I try to find small pictures Jarhead, but when I find the smallest I can it gets all fuzzy and disoriented when I shrink it even more so I just leave them. ALso considering I try to use a different one everytime I do a review of the artists material, pics are hard to find these days.
