A tune for June (song tourney)

Sorry about that. I updated the URL with another one. Let me know if that one works for you.
No need to be sorry - unless it was you personally that geo-blocked it
I'm happy to put your original link as the main one and that one purely as an alt where needed should you wish?

Sure, that works for me.



Sure, that works for me.
And so it shall be done .... who knows I might even format the original link properly when I put up the round (I ought to 'cos I've gone and corrected it in my post now lol).



My Round 11 Nom:
Corvyx - Anyone

Note: I heard this song on one of the reality shows a while back, (either American Idol, The Voice, or America's Got Talent), and I haven't been able to get it out of my head since then. But I don't remember who sang it, so I looked it up (from the lyrics) and listened to a bunch of cover versions of it, (and what I think is probably the original version sung by Demi Lovato), and this is the best version that I found of this song.)

I nearly nominated this earlier in the tournament, but it's a song that quickly lost its luster for me. I haven't been able to make it more than halfway through American Heartbreak yet. 34 songs on an album is ridiculous. Even the greatest artists of all-time are going to have a lot of chaff with that much material at once. Maybe if he'd released a normal 10-12 song album, the hype around him would feel more justified. People are acting like a great new country artist has exploded onto the scene, but I'm not hearing it. His lyricism is his strongest point, but almost every song sounds the same, which quickly grows dull when trying to get through the album. His voice isn't bad, but doesn't offer much range besides the occasional brief grit he adds to punctuate emotion. I think it's great that he's finding so much critical and commercial success, but I'm pretty underwhelmed so far.



Thanks! Glad you all liked that one.
