It’s no secret that sometimes (for whatever reason) your favorite artists pass on great songs. TLC passed on “Baby One More Time” which introduced a teen-phenomenon named Britney Spears.
Other times, artists write a hit-song for themselves and decide to give it away. Which is what happened with Avril Lavigne and “Breakaway”. Lavigne co-wrote and recorded “Breakaway” during the making of her debut album. The track didn’t make the final cut and was passed on to several artists, before Kelly Clarkson decided to release it.
Avril’s demo is much more mellow and subdued compared to Kelly’s belting, but I actually love it! It gives me a country vibe as well. What are your thoughts?
