Jar Of Hearts

So we start playing a song called "Jar Of Hearts" by Christina Perri this week. So far I've heard only negative comments about this song like: "EWWW, that song sucks" or "It's depressing, shut it off" I happen to think this song is really amazing. It has been around since Spring or Summer of this year because she preformed on "So You Think You Can Dance" the song went crazy for a week then died out. It's back and going to be a huge song.. I do want to hear the negative with the positive so feel free to tell me what you think... But, give it a few listens and then decide!! Thanks..

This song is amazing. I want to hear it often on B97!! I was going to call to request it when I heard it. It may be sad or depressing to some, but it's got a nice sound. Please keep playing it.

Parts of the music is great, but most of it is horrible. At times, the lyrics really stand out, but other times, the lyrics are bland. The singing fits during the chorus, but outside of that, the voice is annoying. I'm sure you see the pattern. It shines in a few areas, but it is mostly a pitiful song overall. And I happen to enjoy depressing music; the more depressing, the better. This song is really not nearly as depressing as many better songs I know. But for the pop genre, this is a good song to imitate (which I know will inevitably happen).

The worst lyrics and overwrought, screechy vocals I have EVER encountered in a lifetime of listening to music. This is the kind of drivel first-time songwriters write using a rhyming dictionary. Add to that the fact that the song is egregiously overplayed. Major suckage.

I actually googled "jar of hearts song sucks" just to see if there were other people who hated it as much as I do. This song makes me want to beat my head against a wall every time I hear it. It's like somebody gave a drunk bimbo the mic on karaoki nightafter she got dumped for the hundreth time for being annoying. This song is so overplayed. I dont understand why. It majorly blows. Thanks for letting me get that out.

As a musician and songwriter, I can honestly agree that this song was horribly written (at least lyrically) to the degree where I have no desire to hear anything else that she has done in her "musical" career. If for no other reason, this song is a prime example of trying to force words to "rhyme" that aren't even close. "Are" and "Scars", "Cold" and "Soul", and then towards the end she says "Back" and then "Back" again.. again you have two forms of songwriting... those that rhyme (most songs are like this) and those that are poetic (no need for rhyming and are typically just in spoken word), but this song is a horrible mixture of both (in a very un-clever middle school way at that). For those who like it, I'm not trying to change your mind, but for those who don't, I feel your pain, this song really has no musical value in my opinion. Change the lyrics and it could have an entirely different reaction.

It's a pathetic song. She should let go and move on. Sure some people hurt others over and over but it's a victim song, no better than those victim country songs where the dog runs away, cheating spouse and drowning my sorrow in my beer. Live life and move on from bad people

I also googled this to see if anyone else thought it was really stupid and obnoxious. It is, in fact, really stupid and obnoxious.

just like the person b4 me, i googled to see how many other people feel like me about this song. It puts me off, ruining my mood for at least 10 min. This song should be retired and all copies burnt.

I live in Germany and this song is huge over here right now. I blamed its success on the fact that maybe most people don't understand/pay attention to the lyrics and they just think it's a nice, romantic tune. But to see that this song is bigeven in America really disappoints me... As lala mentioned above: "You're gonna catch a cold from the ice inside your soul....worst lyrics ever".
