Song of the Day #3,271: ‘Cowboy Casanova’ – Carrie Underwood

First things first… Happy Father’s Day to all of the fathers out there, especially my own! Your randomly selected Song of the Day is a serenade by Carrie Underwood. Not bad.

Speaking of Underwood… American Idol is returning to TV less than a year after its cancellation by Fox. Today’s Random SOTD is a reminder that, unlike its cooler cousin The Voice, Idol has actually produced some stars over the course of its run.

Carrie Underwood is no doubt the show’s biggest success story, though Jennifer Hudson and Kelly Clarkson are in the running, and Adam Lambert, Phillip Phillips, Jordin Spark and Chris Daughtry have had respectable careers.

Can you name one memorable contestant from The Voice? Neither can I, and I actually watched a couple of seasons of that show while I’ve yet to see a full episode of American Idol.

[Verse 1]
You better take it from me, that boy is like a disease
You’re running, you’re trying, you’re trying to hide
And you’re wondering why you can’t get free
He’s like a curse, he’s like a drug
You get addicted to his love
You want to get out but he’s holding you down
Because you can’t live without one more touch

[Chorus]
He’s a good time cowboy Casanova
Leaning up against the record machine
Looks like a cool drink of water
But he’s candy-coated misery
He’s the Devil in disguise
A snake with blue eyes
And he only comes out at night
Gives you feelings that you don’t want to fight
You better run for your life

[Verse 2]
I see that look on your face
You ain’t hearing what I say
So I’ll say it again
‘Cause I been where you been
And I know how it ends
You can’t get away
Don’t even look in his eyes
He’ll tell you nothing but lies
And you want to believe
But you won’t be deceived
If you listen to me
And take my advice

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]
Run, run away
Don’t let him mess with your mind
He’ll tell you anything you want to hear
He’ll break your heart
It’s just a matter of time
But just remember

[Chorus]

[Outro]
Oh, you better run for your life (x3)

    It’s true that the Voice has yet to produce a star. Adam Levine has come out and criticized the producers of the show for not doing enough to support the finalists and winners. Idol was very good about pushing the winners’ first single and getting the album out soon after the win. The show also pushed the concert tour of the top 10. The Voice just doesn’t seem to care since the lack of a star hasn’t impacted ratings. Meanwhile, I’m looking forward to the return of Idol because at its best, including the last two seasons, I found it far more entertaining than the Voice, which loses me after the blind auditions.
