Kelly Clarkson - The Trouble With Love Is
--------------Let me just declare for the whole world wide web to hear: If you dislike/hate/haven't seen the movie Love Actually, you have no pulse or haven't experienced absolute holiday happiness.
Not kidding, kids. The collection of stories about love can't help but warm your heart, especially when Sam squeals "Let's get the shit kicked out of us by love!"
Love is like a 2-battery component. Without both a positive and a negative side, it's not gonna work out. We're all familiar with the positives, but Clarkson emphasizes the agony and deception of it. A bold and disarmingly (favorite new adjective) pessimistic move for a pop diva, but Clarkson is going just far down enough with honesty and matter-of-factness. Get "The Trouble With Love Is" from the Love Actually Original Motion Picture Soundtrack.
**The clip below isn't today's song, but it's a damn adorable clip from the movie.
