Hi, my name is Kelly and I'm a Surreal Life-Aholic with no shame.
I just watched the video of "Live My Life" ... the song they had one day to put together, with Jordan producing it ... and I've got to admit (cut me some slack here, k?) I kinda like it. It's catchy. Ryan (hate!!! :phhht ) isn't too terrible. Her voice is like that of a Princess Cruise entertainer. My daughter has taken years of singing and acting lessons, and through her I've learned of different ways you can use your voice, and Ryan's voice is like a "head voice" ... she's not using her "real" voice. It's very generic, and -- dare I say it, Ryan? -- Pop-sounding! (Oh, now there I've gone and said it!) I don't hear a rocker voice coming from her. Granted this is supposed to be an R&B song, but whatever.
The video is cute! I love this cast and I'm going to be sad when this season is over.
I really love how every cast member had a part in making this song. I don't care for Brigitte's voice-over thingy much, but I realize she had to do something, and I love Dave's harmonica, but not his "trumpet sounds". Flav is awesome at the bass, and Charo kicks ass with her flamenco guitar. Jordan's high-pitched "ooooooohhh-ooohh"ing makes me laugh.
I'm sorry I couldn't figure out how to link directly to the video itself, but here's the page, so you just need to click on the video.
