Has a real vintage Motown feel to it but unfortunately Paloma's sometimes dribbling vocal spoils it, would've loved Duffy to do this.

3 -----> 4

Nice song let down by her vocals a little.
******
habe diesen Song gestern, oder war es schon vorgestern, egal...hab den im Radio gehört und dachte zuerst es sei ein neuer Sia Song! Paloma macht hier stimmlich eine sehr gute Arbeit!
Als ich dan gehört habe das es Paloma sei, war ich umso überraschter! Leider ist die Stimme und die lyrics ziemlich das einzige was mich hier überzeugt...4*+

edit: ein echter Grower! Gefällt mir nun so viel besser!
Und dieser Refrain berührt mich total! 5*+

edit2: und schon nach einigen weiteren durchgängen, kann ich hier auf die Höchstnote editieren! Einfach nur wunderschön!
Frage mich was ich damals hatte, als ich den zum ersten mal gehört habe :o Wohl einen schlechten Tag, *forgive me Paloma*

I'm impressed. Her vocals and drawl could become irritating over time but her versatility especially when moving into the upper register is amazing and a real highlight of the track. This is one of her best songs. And wow it's written by Diane Warren. Nice to see her still pumping out some great tracks.

Great. I love the '60s vibes and the production is just flawless here. I don't mind her vocal delivery at all here, her voice is stunning on this track and gives such a magnificent result. I can't decide if I like it more than "Can't Rely On You" though it just falls a little short of "Picking Up the Pieces". Excellent that it hit #1 here despite being on an advertisement ::)

Piano version is so much better than the official version. Paloma nailed it!

Really liking this at the moment. Great track!
****
Good but I do like "Can't Rely On You" more.
*****
Strange that some are bagging her vocals. When I listen to this I think she's doing a much better job with this song than Rihanna ever would.
***
Honestly it's a bit screechy. I love the brass arrangement, but she comes across similar to a desperate Voice singer with the way she's ripping through those notes. 3.25
**
Gee, don't like this at all.

A bit boring and not very interesting.

Other than not being a fan of Paloma in the first place, just hearing her screech the song's trite title at different intonations for almost four minutes isn't engaging for me.

And this is going to be #1.

Sigh.

2.25*.
******
You would think Paloma's voice and style would fit in the Motown era and it would, but in 2014 it is crazy, but the music complements her quirky showgirl style perfectly! And I disliked this at first! One of my favorite songs of the year!

Epic track. Her vocals when she goes higher in the chorus are ridiculous and are spine-tingling.
****
weird and interesting I'm not sure if I like it time will tell
*
Her voice rubs me the wrong way.
Sounds like something from those glorified karaoke shows.
Yay to me for having the only 1 star review now. :P

It's not so much her vocals are bad, they're just a little grating to me. And this is of course, a personal opinion.
***
This doesn't really impress me. The melody is what holds this together somewhat, but without that I can't rate the vocals or lyrics all that highly. 3.3*
***
It's a bit repetitive, and I just feel that her voice doesn't suit this style of music - I much preferred her SCS sound. 3 stars.
***
3 stars
**
Borderline horrible.
****
It just gets into your head although it felt a bit too slow.
******
An amazing song. Nothing else needs to be said.
