MY TOP 11 CHRISTINA AGUILERA SONGS
2. Stronger Than Ever
Written by Christina Aguilera, Sia Furler and Sam Dixon
Sure, it may be cliche to have a haunting piano playing in the background while a female singer calls out in the aural night, lamenting a failed relationship. But sometimes it’s not about reinventing the wheel: it’s about the execution. And here Christina gives a tour-de-force vocal performance, possibly the best of any recorded track in her entire discography. Powerful but controlled. Heart-breaking but chill-inducing. Measured but emotional. I will never get tired of her soaring, unparalleled voice during the chorus, where she’s “tired of walking on eggshells, so terrified to fail” and yet ultimately “stronger than ever”.
