Yes, based on her language. Her use of "tart" was meant to be demeaning and dismissive. I made an assumption as to why based on her stated desires.

Haley's phrasing is old school and perky. And her emotion to the song seems to go with the arrangement ( a happier one) verses the depressing lyrics.

But I don't think it improves upon the song. The arrangement, the lyrics, the voice..they are all in sync in the original, and it's a wonderfully catchy and unique pop song. IMO, as a fanbase, we want to stay as open and as positive as possible. No need to downplay the original.
I like both versions. I liked the original at first listen and think it's better than most pop songs. But I think the video goes a long way in establishing the gloomy mood Merlin referred to earlier. I agree there's no need to drag down the original version of any song Haley might cover to lift up her performances.

I'll stay away from speculating on the mindset of a person who watches a video with some very good musicians and gets <s>preoccupied or distracted </s> in a huff about a blond at the very back of the frame. (I guess I should put that more politely as some of you have been distracted by other people up on stage with Haley when she's singing)

In Casey's video and Haley's as well, My eyes were on the drummer and the clarienet and the pianoI love to see a musician's fingers on their instrument and I like to see their eyes and body language reacting to what each other is playing . (actually more than on the singer.. i don't always like to watch a singer's face except as they're reacting themselves to other musicians mostly)

In advance of the PMJ video, I switched the trailer video on my channel to Room5 "Cry Me a River" from the recently posted BGDays' "Better" I recently edited together. I figured CMAR would be more in line with the music of PMJ (Other options were AATB or Irvin's "At Last")

I've plugged my channel a bit on the PMJ video, I don't see a significant bump in views per video, but have gained 24 subscribers since its debut. I normally have been seeing about 5 per day, give or take, since Room 5, currently at 2261 subscribers.

They put the link to Haley's SMYM channel on the PMJ video, last time I checked, she had around 850 subscribers (over a month ago?) it's now 1146
