Carolyn Dawn Johnson, “Got a Good Day”
Is it too much to ask for a frickin’ melody these days? Carolyn Dawn Johnson has a decent voice, but you’d never know it as she whispers and talks through the verses, sounding emotionally detached like Paula Cole does on “Where Have All the Cowboys Gone?” Cole’s approach made sense given the message of that song, but Johnson is trying to convince us she’s having a good day. My best guess: it’s a good day because she’s stoned. By the time she asked me to throw my hands up in the bridge, I was done.
