Nostalgia is a powerful drug and it’s the main reason why Since U Been Gone is today’s music video of the day. Whe I hear this song, I’m immediately zapped back to 2005 and I remember how Lisa and I got on everyone’s nerves by singing it at the top of our lungs every day during the holiday break.
I also remember really liking this video when I first saw it but now I realize that it actually doesn’t go with the song’s message. The song is about how much happier Kelly is after getting out of a toxic relationship but in the video, Kelly’s destroying her ex’s new girlfriend’s apartment and acting like she’s got a fatal attraction going on. She should have at least trashed her ex’s place and left the new girlfriend out of it. This is still a good video, though, because we all have someone in our part whose apartment we would like to trash.
