There's no arguing that Lea Michele has a strong, beautiful voice and that she's very talented. Unfortunately, what sounds right on stage doesn't always translate to a pop hit. There's something too perfect and too studied about the vocals on "Cannonball." The lyrics are also extremely cliché and kind of cheesy, with lines such as, "I chose suffering and pain in the falling rain." It's not a terrible song, but it's definitely not a breakout hit.
