Catherine Britt, “What I Did Last Night”
Good Lord, this is actually painful to listen to, like she didn’t bother to clear her throat before hitting the studio. It’s a shame, since the song is actually quite good, the type that Tanya Tucker could’ve knocked out of the ballpark during her rowdy days. Britt just can’t deliver the melody consistently enough to form a hook.
Fact is, it’s time to stop signing cute blonde girls who don’t have the music chops and start looking for some real artists. A&R departments should listen to these demos right after listening to a Trisha Yearwood record, instead of while salivating over glossy photos of the latest pretty young thing.
