Critical Hit | 03:16 | M4A | MP3 | Lyrics | # 19
Life! Sometimes you just have to be all like, "it is the best." But why would you sing such a thing out loud? Perhaps because you are a fabulous pop sensation? Not in this case. Maybe because your music is deeply and vociferously appreciated by the critic
