I really really love this song! I love the beat and the adlibs. she’s always spoken to why she didn’t like it and it was always a business reason, never musical from what I’ve seen.
I can imagine it was a bit of a struggle to sing live because there are so many layers (maybe one of the reasons that Bran didn’t like it as much)z
She had plans with Timbaland and lost some of her creative control with Atlantic toward the end. Borderline has way more layering dnndnf
I thought she once said it was too high or something..but I don’t remember what interview hmm
the radio interview during the TwoEleven interview sticks out in my mind. It was the one time she was super honest about why she didn’t use
Talked about all the plans she and Timbaland had, musically and visually and how everything changed at the last minute. I think it put a sour taste in her mouth. RHD and other songs are a lot higher and these days, she even ups the key on songs that were originally lower, which is pretty amazing after all this time. I’d love more of that and that setlist absolutely needs to get a lot longer and diversified when she returns to the stage, whenever that may be.
No excuse. Her catalog is too legendary to do them same 10 songs. Ch
