Wasting All These Dreams-Cassadee Pope (Republic)

You know what turns me off? When someone sings the word “you” as “yaaaa-ooooo”. It came from Pop, of course and now we hear it all the time on records by singers being molded on the Taylor Swift model. This is probably a good teenaged girl’s record, but I’m so far and away gone from gettin’ into such records that I can just guess at it. She’s the first female winner on “The Voice” and you don’t get that prize for bein’ subtle. Volume counts. That’s another thing that generally turns me off. Ethel Merman ruined it for me, I su’pose. Let’s just watch it, what say.
