::Carrie Underwood:: Good Girl Song

About the Song:
Released: 2012
Writing Credits: Carrie Underwood, Chris DeStefano and Ashley Gorley
Label: 19 Recordings
Genre: Country, Pop
Debut: #1
My Thoughts: although “Good Girl” has a ring of familiarity to it, it does not diminish how awesome this track is – seriously. Each time I listen to it, I like it more. (I’ve probably listened to it half-a-dozen times since its release Thursday!) As early reviews have claimed, Carrie nails this song – yet again. In much the tradition of her prior tracks, I don’t feel like we are being asked to listen to a song that has been sung time and again only with different titles and words (example being “Cowboy Casanova”) but rather another destined-to-become-number-one-single from an artist who is multi-talented.

The message of the song itself has a good-bad vibe going for it. On the one hand, it is encouraging girls to stay away from guys that are “bad news” but on the other hand, in getting there, some of the lines aren’t always above criticism.
