You Made It Rain-Risa Bender (Nine North)

I like this record ‘cause I like this kind of female voice. Young and playful and vibrant. But I only like it in small servings, infrequently and in a Pop music mix. I don’t associate it with Country, hardly ever. That’s been my problem with some, not all, of Taylor Swift’s singles. When she’s got that teenager thing going, it loses me and it loses the core male listener, too, as is clearly evident by the auditorium test scores six to twelve months after the fact. This is a sweet song. But if this singer tried to walk into a club where Toby and Blake were shootin’ pool, I’d have to ask for her ID.
