“My Life Would Suck Without You,” is a standard American Pop song: Girl meets boy, they fall in love, they fall out but they make up. Kelly Clarkson pulls off this type of song perfectly, as has ever since she won American Idol.
The song sets the tone of her fourth album, taking the listener back to the days of “Since U Been Gone. While the disco rhythm and synth-dance pop pushes the pop angle of the song, the guitar riff, keeps the whole song from sounding too manufactured, and makes Clarkson the rock chick.
Overall the song is a never-ending mix of huge melodies and strong vocals, and easily one of Clarkson’s best songs to date.
