Dark Side is a song by American pop rock singer Kelly Clarkson, written by bussbee and Alexander Geringas, and produced by Greg Kurstin. The song is the third single from Clarkson's fifth album, Stronger. Kelly Clarkson has a Dark Side, but she wants you to love her anyway. This song's music-box intro quickly turns nightmarish, as Kelly sings about place that's not pretty and that few have ever gone. She'll show that dark side to you, lover, but you better promise up front that you can handle it, no matter how bad it is. This could wind up being a favorite songs of psycho girlfriends everywhere, because it's a set-up. She never quite says so, but, given the first two songs, here's how it plays: If you bail before seeing the dark side, she'll tell everybody she knows that you're shallow. If he bails after, she'll tell everybody you're a jerk. Kelly finishes the song in her most siren-like voice, singing, "Don't run away, don't run away." Don't listen to her, guys. The song has received mostly positive reviews from music critics, with most of them noting its goth-like resemblance to some of the tracks of My December, but were pleased by its music box style melody, dance-pop tempo and positive message. National Drive and Nights across the NOVA Network helped Kelly slip into the Most Added rankings for the week. Let's see if these additions transform into spins over the next couple of weeks. Dark Side enters the chart at #59.
