I'm a Tornado

Little Big Town - Tornado

Hey, not bad for a country song. HA
Don't mess with me, I'm a tornado.

The song compares a scorned woman to a force of nature, and features an ominous chorus in which the protagonist threatens to destroy the house that she shares with her wayward man. "Natalie played it for us one night and we were like, man, I don't think I've ever heard a chick say, 'I'm a tornado,'" said Fairchild.

Little Big Town is an American country music vocal group. Founded in 1998, the group has comprised the same four members since its inception: Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Jimi Westbrook, and Phillip Sweet.

Little Big Town's fifth studio album, Tornado, was released on September 11, 2012.
The album's second single, "Tornado," was released on October 1, 2012.
Karen Fairchild and Jimi Westbrook married on May 31, 2006

Moving up the charts.
65 on the Hot 100 billboard when I found the song.

iPod Touch Internet and Maroon 5 Cover Songs

I tried to go on the Internet with my iPod Touch and listen to Sad, by Maroon 5 that way, but I could NOT find that at YouTube and besides the YouTube App, I also tried all 3 of my search engine apps: Google App, Chrome App, and Mercury App. All I could find were cover songs. So then I went to my blog and clicked on the YouTube link I had there and I got a message saying not available on mobile device.

Also when I tried to access a Maroon 5 playlist at YouTube on my iPod Touch it was blocked with a sign-in requirement message.

So that was interesting. I also found out Grooveshark is not accessible and charges for an App, so does Hulu.

Internet content is different, more limited and controlled on mobile devices than on my laptop. Didn't know that about mobile devices.

As for the Maroon 5 Sad cover songs, I did find some I liked.

Maroon 5 - Sad (Cover by Iker Kourts)
Adds a strong beat and guitar along with piano, which jazzes it up a bit and it's not as stark and sad as Maroon 5 version.
Voice is good. Sound quality is good.

Sad (Maroon 5 Cover) - Liam Howard
Good sound quality.
Piano only.
I like his deep strong voice.

I liked Olivia Burke's voice and originality enough to check out what else she has on YouTube. She's done other Maroon 5 covers.

She has auditioned for The Voice (Maroon 5's Adam Levine).
(closed) my 'THE VOICE' Audition!!!! *IMPORTANT*

She auditioned for the X Factor first and says that The Voice audition was a better experience.

Dan and Olivia Google Searches:
There's a Dan Humphrey (Portrayed by Penn Badgley) and Olivia Burke (Portrayed by Hillary Duff) on CW's "Gossip Girl."
There's another younger Olivia Burke singer that shows up in searches too.
