Anyone who knows me, knows that my biggest guilty pleasure is Kelly Clarkson. Hell, I can hardly call it a guilty pleasure these days as Stronger was in my top 60 records of the year at Your Forgotten Favorite (cheap plug No. 1 for my other blog). So before you judge an old punker for over-indulging in some American Idol pop goodness, just remember this video. Clearly if Mr. Leo thinks it's cool, it must be...and I'll just keep telling myself that over and over and over again.
I'm with you on Ms. Clarkson, Scott. She's still the gold standard by which all American Idols are measured.ReplyDelete
The Ted Leo version is kind of like fingernails on a chalkboard for me, though.
