Christina Perri - Jar of Hearts

22 November Critic Jonni 0 Comments

Christina Perri has such a beautiful and clear voice it's unbelievable that it's taken this long for her to become known. Now she's becoming a worldwide star and it's going to be difficult to keep up with her. She also has a brother who is also in the music industry Nick Perri, who has played guitar for many different bands.

This song was written by Christina Perri, Drew Lawrence and Barrett Yeretsian. I like how she manages to display her emotion through this song, it is really emotional and really nice to just sit back and listen to. The song is about someone who she was in a relationship with and that someone was using her to collect his "Jar of Hearts". This song is kind of her response to what he did. Christina Perri wrote this song on her own experience of someone who wanted to rekindle their broken relationship.

I'm not entirely sure what to make of this music video, at times it looks really good, but then there are some bits of it I think makes it look messy. It looks a little low-budget in my opinion, clearly they weren't aware of the phenomenon this song was going to become.

I like the interpretation of the song in dance. I always enjoy watching dance displayed so effortlessly and interestingly. I also like the link that was used, because this song was first played on So You Think You Can Dance (the US version) and that is how the song managed to become well-known and why it charted so high. So the dance sequence was used as a reference to the TV show.

I also like what Christina Perri is wearing, it makes her look like a rock chick, it's something you would have expected Avril Lavigne to wear in her early days, especially the white dress and the combat boots. This could potentially be a bad thing, because at the start the music doesn't start straight away, and anyone who saw her could think that this song is sort of in the genre of rock, and would probably swap the music channel over even before the song started.

I really don't like the Jar of Hearts, the way they show this is terrible, in my opinion, and I know it makes him look like a dementors from Harry Potter. But they could have done it a lot better, and it definitely brings down this music video.

Overall, I really like the song, after hearing it a few times, but it's music video isn't as good as I first thought it was. I hope Christina Perri keeps on going and has a very good career in the future, but I also hope that her music videos will get better than this one.
