By all laws of logic and reason, I should hate this song. But I don’t.
I like that the lyrics move by quickly enough that you can enjoy the rhyme without having to linger over their inanity. McGraw’s vocal is a bit goofy, but not to the point that you doubt he’s actually a bit heartbroken.
And hey, the song’s central concept actually works, helping it rise above an otherwise corny title.
