Adam Lambert - Whataya Want From Me

I wrote about the first single from Adam Lambert's debut album last month.  "For Your Entertainment" was a risky club song that gave him negative, yet somewhat good, publicity.  This time around he's taking a different approach.  "Whataya Want From Me" is a power ballad of some sort, and it's exactly what Adam needed.  The lyrics are incredibly suitable for his current situation.  During American Idol, everyone wanted to know more about his personal life.  After Idol, people thought he was sharing too much.  In the song, he asks exactly, "Whataya want from me?"  The single was originally written by, and for, P!nk.  In the end, it didn't make the final cut for her album, Funhouse.  I have to say, she wrote a really good song.  The chord progression is unique to today's radio, and the delivery of the lyrics is great.  It doesn't matter if you liked his previous single.  I would give this song a chance either way.  If you need a pop song with meaningful lyrics, here it is.

  1. This song is very catchy. Once I hear it, it sticks in my head. That's a good thing though, because his music is awesome.
