Faith Hill, “Red Umbrella”


September 15, 2007

If “Lost” revisited the smoky romance of “Breathe”, “Red Umbrella” is just as reminiscent of Hill’s whimsical pop-country confections “This Kiss” and “If My Heart Had Wings.” Her joy-filled performance and the candy-sweet production come together for a typically charming and entertaining single. She’s a great singer, without a doubt. But it’s her infectious personality that makes this so darn good. Methinks I’ll be blasting this in the car quite a bit this fall.

    I’m a fan of Faith Hill, particularly her more recent material. Her voice has just gotten better, she more sultry and sexier than ever, and she is taken creative risks that I really admire.

    This song, however, is too reminiscent of her bubble-gum stuff that didn’t really make the best use of her vocal talent. Even so, I know songs like “Red Umbrella” are the kind that make her fan base very, very happy. And as far as the bubble-gum numbers go, this one isn’t too bad.

    But I’d like to see more like the singles she released in 2006.

    It could be worse — she could release a cover of Rihanna’s “Umbrella.”

    I have to agree with the 9513 – this is a really really dumb song – sung reasonably well, but still a dumb song “C-”

    I was listening to this song on Sirius, and I couldn’t for the life of me find anything country about it. It’s a sugary pop song, and it’s really bad. I expect more from Faith… I just wish she’d come out with better stuff.

    STUPID STUDIP STUPID. Lost was the better single and should of did better on radio.

    “Red Umbrella” is definitely pretty to listen to, but the lyrics just don’t make that much sense.
