Cowboy Crush, “Miss Difficult”

Enough already. I am so tired of “attitude songs” always being coupled with loud, obnoxious production. The drumbeat is too in-your-face and the poor singers have to scream to be heard over it.

What stinks is that they can actually sing, and the song itself is pretty good. Keep it simple. Even Shania’s brightest pop confections don’t have too much going on. Believe in the song, believe in the hook and believe in the singers behind the mic. I guarantee you this song would be a keeper if they stripped it down. Right now, it’s just headache-inducing.
