Carrie Underwood’s last single was a little on the dark side and there has definitely been this undertone in Carrie’s songs throughout her career. This reminds me of the song Hazard from Richard Marx. It had this haunting quality about it and a great late ’80s, early ’90s melody. That’s the feeling I get when I listen to this song from Carrie and I really like it. Hopefully the country audience will feel the same way.
Two Black Cadillacs – Carrie Underwood
Things in Hazard were left a little fuzzy about the murder that took place. There isn’t much of a secret in this one from Carrie. The two women that are the center of the story are made out to be revenge seeking women, but to them it was necessary. The man they both loved was cheating on each of them and in the end he had to pay for it with his life.
It’s really an interesting song and that’s probably where it should be left. This is a story told through music and sometimes stories are fiction including this one although I’m sure this has happened before and the women are still out there living fulfilling lives.
Just take this as a reminder out there guys and gals that when you’re cheating you’re hurting someone and if you cross them the wrong way you might have to pay with your life.
Carrie Underwood has this dark edge about her and it’s really appealing. She co-wrote this song as she has with many of her songs over the last few years. It’s an interesting song and one that really takes her career to a new place.
I like it.
