Sad to see one for Kelly's greatest song being paid dust just cuz it wasn't a REAL single and people voting for P!nk by default without even having listened to Kelly's. Her vocals on this track is stunning. It's raw and powerful and does dances around P!nk's Sober. I enjoy P!nk's sober but it doesn't have as much dept as Kelly's. The bridge and the belt she does>>>>>>>>life. Give it a listen and get into it.
I still remember the magnificent reviews of "Sober" when it was first released.
"'Sober' is a better bet to propel the pop queen back to the top with affecting downtempo velocity, a doleful message of overcoming temptation and a vocal inflamed with convincing pensive emotion."'

Instead, we got the lovely, tortured, and understated "Sober," which, sans promotion from a label that—perhaps vindictively—opted to cut its losses, flopped like a drunk falling off the wagon. SC
