What's the story?

GOODBYES is the first single from the singer/songwriter Savannah Outen -- who's a rising star thanks to her presence on the video-sharing Web site YouTube. This song is a pop-rock anthem about saying goodbye to old friends and moving on. And, the video is as innocent as the song with warm and fuzzy scenes from the last days of school.

Is it any good?

This heartfelt farewell song will have school-age kids singing along to -- and possibly even shedding some tears over -- as they all grow up and learn about moving on to different situations. No doubt it will be played over and over come the end of each school year. The lyrics lament, "How do we say our goodbyes/do we laugh or cry?" Sniff sniff. Performing since the age of two, Outen's voice is solid and strong, and chances are this isn't her last goodbye.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the popularity of venues like YouTube and MySpace and the way each can launch careers for budding artists. Do you think it has made it easier for artists to break into the music business? Is that fair or unfair? Do you think most Internet-turned-stars are worthy?
