Joanna Pacitti - Let It Slide  

21-year-old Pennsylvanian Joanna Pacitti was last heard of when her song Watch Me Shine was featured on the soundtrack to Legally Blonde, and a great song it was too (I posted it here a while ago). She finally has a new single and I have to say I'm quite impressed. It's catchy but sophisticated pop in a style most comparable to Mandy Moore's 2nd and 3rd albums, but there's a surprise - after the first run-through of the chorus she then sings it again in a rock style! She then returns to pop and then back to rock after each chorus, ending in a big built up rocky pop crescendo of a final chorus. In theory it should be a mess but in practise it totally works! Amusing Joanna fact: in the 90s she played Annie in the musical of the same name but was fired leading to a big lawsuit and an appearance on Saturday Night Live.
