From 2010, please enjoy Sara Bareilles and "King of Anything," AKA the best fricking FUCK YOU -- I DON'T REALLY NEED YOU RELATIONSHIP BREAKUP SONG (FROM A FEMALE PERSPECTIVE) since "No Guilt" by The Waitresses. (Which was written by a guy, come to think of it. But I digress.)
In any case, I don't know how this one slipped under my esthetic radar until last weekend, but damn, girl -- that is just an amazingly great song and production.
For the handclaps alone, actually. And by the way, the fact that this lost the Grammy to Lady Gaga's drecky "Bad Romance" is reason in and of itself to nuke NARAS.
UPDATE: It just occurred to me that Bareille's song is rather obviously inspired, arrangement wise, by the only Annie Lennox record I ever loved.
Which I don't mean as a criticism, BTW. You know the saying -- great composers steal, mediocre composers borrow.
