MAV3RICK SPOTLIGHT OF THE WEEK: Hate My Heart -Carrie Underwood

I figured since Kissin’ 977 is getting you qualified to see Carrie Underwood in Tampa (that’s a little town in a state called, Florida), why not get your thoughts on one of my new favorite tunes from her album, Denim & Rhinestones. This week’s Mav3rick Spotlight of the Week is the follow up to Carrie Underwood’s, Ghost Story called, Hate My Heart. 

If you were to just read the lyrics, you might assume Hate My Heart would be a sad ballad. But Underwood turns up the amp of the guitar and soothingly screams out a bit of anger towards her own throbbing muscle near to her soul, under the sheets of her bed, wishing she was elsewhere enjoying a lovely adult beverage at a bar. Her mind knows the targeted subject was the wrong person for her, “but this thing in my chest just can’t forget. It keeps beating for him”. 

Sure, the pain will go away someday, but right now, these are the stages we humans go though. Show of hands, how many of us can relate to that?! If you’re living in the heartbreak trenches right now, then put on your best noise cancellation headphones, Google the lyrics, and crank it up. By the way, if you think guys can’t relate to the scenario, Carrie Underwood co-wrote it with Michael Hardy. Yeah. That’s right. As in one of Nashville’s best known songwriters turned singer, Hardy! Yes, I love this song on many levels. I for one have tear-soaked blankets with the name of my wasted affections. I’m talking to you televisions’ Jennifer Love Hewitt. I also love the song because it rocks, during a time where a lot of artists are releasing a lot of ballads. And I love Carrie Underwood’s way of restraining total nuclear vocal range (and you know she can reach that height). I like to believe that the fictional main character is afraid to scream it out too loud under the covers, in fear the neighbors next door will hear her. 

Well, you be the judge this week. Does Carrie Underwood have another hit on her hands? Can Hate My Heart reach the top spot on the charts and (forgive the pun) our hearts?
