Riff: Demi Lovato – “Give Your Heart a Break”

Feb 4, 2013

Don’t wanna break your heart/Wanna give your heart a break

from Give Your Heart a Break lyrics by Demi Lovato

Another hit that fails to surprise or affect the listener’s pulse for its entirety. Catering to adult contemporary and ‘tween crowds, Lovato serves up a fresh slice of homogenized boredom, hoping to carry it with one clever turn of phrase. Music-listening kids these days need to rebel more.
