"I Can, I Will"
Highest score: 8 [Passion4MyMusic]
Lowest score: 2 [ClassicMainstream]
This is another topic that will come up. It seems all four girls had the "pleasure" of working with the same producers, and as a result, the songs will sound like they belong on each other's albums. So, this song does sounds like it could've been on Mandy's album, but the lyrics really don't match up with Mandy that well. Not to say the lyrics match up with Jessica any better. This is the problem with Jessica, she has an amazing voice, but she's tethered to these godforsaken lyric nightmares that her voice barely matters. This is just another whatever song to me.
My score: 6.
at Jessica. Mandy's album was the worst of them all.

Wait, screw you ALL! "Soda Pop" is genius. Legitimate top ten material. I will pray for you all to recognize this and atone for your sins.
Also, I would have hoped that voters would at least appreciate the good ballads in this rate, but judging by the elimination of "Obvious," such is not the case. Too bad.
P.S. I definitely did NOT give "Quit Breaking My Heart" an 8.
Kylie Minogue Madonna Rihanna Christina Aguilera
Queen Oasis Nirvana The Strokes Franz Ferdinand The Libertines The Killers Kasabian The Kooks
James Brown Lily Allen Bruno Mars Whitney Houston Stevie Wonder
So far, Christina has only had one song down, while the rest have lost, at least, 2 songs now.
"E-Mail My Heart"
Highest score: 10 [supaspaz]
Lowest score: 1 [Kool_Aid_King]
This is the lowest score I gave any of the songs. I'm sorry, there's bad and then there's just god-awful. I mean, first can we talk about the title. "E-mail My Heart"? Seriously, are we e-mailing messages to others' hearts? The song itself is so slow and solemn, about a break-up that went bad and she wants the guy that broke up with her to e-mail her a message. Maybe back then this was cute, but this is just sad to think about. There is nothing personal about an e-mail unless it's twenty pages long, and that's forty pages written! So, basically, this is someone shallow asking for a shallow-ass "It's okay, baby, we can work it out" PM. Britney + ballad = not a good sign... ever.
My score: 3.
"Lock Me In Your Heart"
Highest score: 9 [Passion4MyMusic & ClassicMainstream]
Lowest score: 2 [Rolland] "Mandy! Mandy! The sound of your voice is sweet as candy!"
I should've known what I was prepared for when I heard that. I almost fell out of my chair when I first heard that. Again, corny lyrics, and corny key-change. Uh, and I don't what that guy was hearing, her voice is as soft as a pillow, but sweet...
My score: 5.

This is actually my lowest rated Jessica song. I'm sorry, but beyond the corny lyrics, the overdone pop beat, and the unnecessary key-change, there is absolutely no depth into this song. I hope this is my final heartbreak, because I was almost heartbroken listening to this. It really is heartbreaking hearing great voice be reduced to lackluster songs like this.
My score: 4.
