Crystal Bowersox is back with a new single.
The American Idol alum has released a few singles since being on the show. She’s reached the outskirts of the charts and has always had a knack for writing really powerful songs. This new one is another song like that with a new twist on things.
Give it a listen and see if you can relate.
Dead Weight – Crystal Bowersox
Listen to Dead Weight by Crystal Bowersox
From what I can tell this song is about the old advice that you shouldn’t beat a dead horse. I’ve heard it said a few different ways including paying for a dead horse as it is when you buy a car on credit and crash it before it’s paid off.
The topic of the song seems to be about how people tend to hold onto someone even though that person has left their life. Usually the case is after a breakup. You kind of hang on to things instead of just moving on and letting go.
It’s dead weight and it can really hold you back and bring you down.
That’s the sad pat of this song. It’s a struggle with former love.
But there is also hope in this song. It’s about understanding the dead weight and finally moving on.
This song has a really good melody with some good hooks. You can sing along by the end of the song, which always helps when you’re looking for mainstream success.
I love the background vocals on the song too.
Great song here.
