A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that this single follows the classic Carrie Underwood pattern: no offensive language, sex, substance use, or other adult content of any kind. Although the tune covers romantic-relationship ground -- this time finding her wishing she could erase the memory of a failed relationship -- Underwood describes her heartache in very innocuous terms.
What's the story?
UNDO IT is the latest single off the smash-hit album Play On by Carrie Underwood -- the former American Idol who took the show by storm with her powerhouse vocals and sweet country way. Like most of Underwood's music, the tune covers romantic-relationship ground -- this time finding her wishing she could erase the memory of a failed relationship. Though it's a tough topic, Underwood avoids using graphic language or adult references, choosing instead to describe her heartache in very innocuous terms. For example: "You had my heart, now I want it back / I'm starting to see everything you lack / Boy you blew it, you put me through it, I wanna undo it."
Is it any good?
With a voice like hers, no Carrie Underwood song could ever suffer from bad vocals. That said, "Undo It" is another Underwood tune with rock-solid singing. The super-catchy hook straddles the line between new country and pop, combining some power synthesizer and a little bit of fiddle.
