“Said No One Ever”
Written by busbee, Nicolle Galyon and Natalie Hemby
Jana Kramer’s long list of quotations attributed to “no one ever” includes, but is by no means limited to, “Wish you’d talk more about yourself”, “Sucks to be rich”, “I don’t need your love and affection”, “I don’t need to be your one and only,” “Love is always real on reality TV”, “Don’t want love to last forever”, and “My Heisman and my Grammy came so damn easy”.
But someone apparently and inexplicably said that this sounded like a good idea for a country song. After all, “Truck Yeah” proved that pop culture catchphrases always make great central hooks….Unfortunately, there’s just no sustaining the novelty throughout a nearly three-minute song. It’s hard to see “Said No One Ever” as anything but uninspired, repetitive and juvenile, suggesting that some things may be best left on Facebook.
By the way, in case anyone is wondering how many times the song’s title refrain is repeated, the answer is 29.
