4.0 out of 5 stars More Heartfelt than Clarkson's Been for Some Time November 6, 2012
Verified Purchase
Let me make one thing very clear: I'm not a Kelly Clarkson fan. Her recent songs (particularly "Already Gone") really annoy me due to how the arrangments are put together, her-not-so-phenominal singing technique, and how fans will cheer on even her most repetitive themes. She does have talent, but her music hasn't had the opportunity to show it for a while.

This song brought me back a little with Clarkson. The arrangment, while building a little too strongly in the third verse, stars out with a quiet music box theme and a guitar sneaking in. I think this choice was great in portraying that secret, darker thing in the back of your mind, which is what the song is basically about. It's too bad the song has to give into Pop music's temptation to "rock" and abandon that softness, but it's still a nice opening and closing. The lyrics are at times a little cliché and predictable (particularly "don't run away, promise you'll stay") but having a song like this is good for the Pop scene. With every non-romance song being about self-empowerment and overcoming inner conflicts, this song is more like accepting inner demons and asking someone to stand by you even with them. It's about living with the bad and moving onward, rather than abandoning the bad for good, and to me, that rings stronger than your average, light-hearted song out there. It certainly is a nice change of pace from Clarkson's break-up-but-coming-back material.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kelly can do no wrong May 29, 2012
By marface
Kelly Clarkson's latest album is her best ever, in my opinion. The girl has one of the best voices in history and really can sing anything. Her new single, Dark Side, is a really really good song. There are other songs that I would have preferred her to release as singles, but really there are no bad songs on this album. Dark Side is different than any other songs out there right now. I love it, and love Kelly

The is a place where you can go to do just what you feel. Sing, dance , workout, drive a fast motorcycle or car passed the speed limit. Maybe even something darker you can't even speak it, you just have to show it. You show the one you love just how dark you are and see if they stay. You never know just how powerful the power of the darkside can be, just a fun as you think is it, or maybe its to much to handle. When you find out will you Stay or will You Go.
