"Not Pretty Enough"(Live) - Kasey Chambers (Telluride Bluegrass Festival)
Clever lyrics, sweet tune; more universally appropriate than her original intention of an artist mostly un-noticed in the shadow of the Britney Spears' of the mainstream music industry. Could work in light of many types of relationships as well.

This song has the hook which could make it into pop radio. For some reason every time I hear the song's hook I always search out the artist.

What's there not to like?
Plenty: 1. The little girl singing voice 2. Heavy drumming (more country than folk) 3. Electric guitar 4. Repetitive lyrics

Folk music most of all speaks to living life and Kasey's song does that. Furthermore, listeners should find way to appreciate the soul of the song because it is far more important than electric instruments or the force of the drumbeat.

To like or not to like...
I wouldn't disagree with a previous poster that the drumming is a little much, though in a live album where the mixing might have been a second priority I can forgive it. But I have to say that to me, the little-girl singing voice saying, "I take it like a man" is a priceless bit of irony, especially in the song's context. This song makes me want to listen to more Kasey Chambers.

I like it!
I think Kasey represents some very knew fresh stuff in the lyric department. Yes, the instrument choice is anything but fresh, but overall, it is very good music. As for her girlish voice; that's what makes her unique, and I think it really adds a neat dimension to this song. And then there is Jane from above!!! Well Jane, you are right; everyone is entitled to their opinion, and so is the guy that you bashed!! I happen to agree with him on his points more than yours. You come off sounding like a HRC supporter....for what that's worth!! Gotta love this election cycle stuff!!!

Mute it
I mute this song when it airs. That is my response, not well articulated.
