Carrie Underwood is notorious for bashing guys in her singles (see some of her country hits, “Before He Cheats” and “Cowboy Casanova”).
Now, her latest single, “Good Girl,” is no exception to her list of number-one boy-bashing songs. Underwood speaks straight to the good girl herself, telling her to stay away from the “no good” boy that she’s involved with.
With lines like “his lips are dripping honey but he’ll sting you like a bee” and “but he’s really good at lying, yeah he’ll leave you in the dust/ ‘cause when he says forever, well, it don’t mean much,” it’s obvious that the boy had been treating the girl wrong.
Maybe this good girl will team up with Underwood to take a “Louisville slugger to both headlights.”
It makes me wonder if Underwood is speaking to herself from a past relationship, or if she’s just speaking out to all the “good girls” out there.
Which man in Underwood’s life could she be speaking to? She’s certainly not belting out the harsh lyrics to current husband, hockey player Mike Fisher — especially after she told her mom how great he was in her single, “Mama’s Song.”
The first line of the chorus, after all, describes just how great her husband has treated her, “He’s good, so good. He treats your little girl like a real man should.”
Many girls, like Underwood’s past bad-ass-female songs, may find this song playing on repeat after a bad breakup or during a fight with their significant other.
Or they may just be playing it in favor of the rock-edge that Underwood brings to the table while still keeping a taste of her southern twang on the track. She proves in her latest single that, while she’s dipping her toes in the other musical genres, she’s not leaving the country scene anytime soon.
The track, like all of her other songs, also shows off her singing ability, showing that American Idol picked a true winner on their fourth season back in 2005.
The song, “Good Girl,” is the first single to come out of her new album, dropping May 1. And if this is a sense of what is going to be on it, I’m on board for purchasing a copy.
