Singles 11/12

A slow week, as the results show, but worthwhile to get me thinking about the career of Pink, who for ten years has often impressed me without giving her a second thought (the early R&B hits and “Don’t Let Me Get Me” excepted). Look for a review of her new compilation in the next few days as I get around to absorbing it.

I’ve taken McGraw for granted too. I could afford it — he’s hardly an underdog, as his sales figures have shown. But he’s got a shrewd ear for songs, and you can certainly make a case for McGraw being the premier male interpreter of the last decade. I’m particularly fond of “In the Next Twenty Years” and two singles from 2007’s Let It Go: the Eddie Rabbit cover “Suspicions” and the Faith Hill duet “I Need You,” where the intimacy of sharing a mic with her hubby coaxes out the most sensual performance of her career.

Tim McGraw – Felt Good On My Lips (8)

Pink – Raise Your Glass (4)

So far – Singles

More book keeping as I finish a long-delayed project. This year’s singles so far, ranked from best to last. I can still be surprised: last year Lady Antebellum and Natalie Imbruglia broke into my top ten before I recovered from my daze.
