Lyrically, the song is written in a woman's first-person narrative about her acquiescence and infuriation towards her You Plus Me (The Einstein Dub) - Lee Prentiss - YOU PLUS ME (The Einstein Song)whom she described in the song as "dumb". Written in wordplay, it uses various mathematical-related equations and topics as rhetorical devices to describe their relationship, notably referencing the German-born physicist Albert Einstein in a metaphorical lyricwhich led to the song being named after him.
Upon its release, "Einstein" received mixed reviews from music critics, whose criticism targeted the song's lyrical content, primarily the lyric "Dumb plus dumb equals you", but also complimented Clarkson's vocal performance. Propelled by digital sales during the album's release week, "Einstein" charted at number 56 in the South Korean Singles Chart. She has performed the song in select dates of her Stronger Tour.
Kelly initially wrote the song for her debut studio album, but ultimately gave it to Clarkson. Kelly recalled:. In Maya demo of the song was leaked into the internet, but was quickly taken down. I grew up loving feisty women singers. I find a lot of joy in getting all that crap out of your system. Shaky Ground - Delbert McClinton - The Jealous Kind Willman of Reuters gave a positive review, he wrote: "The rocker "Einstein" sounds like it might've been written for Pink, though it probably wasn't, since Clarkson gets a co-writing credit.
Against guitar squalls and live drums, she does the romantic math "Our love divided by the square root of pride It was heavy when I finally figured it out" and concludes that "dumb plus dumb equals you," a formula that will surely help kids get interested in arithmetic this fall. Jason Lipshutz of Billboardhowever, wrote, "Yes, "Einstein" is fun. Yes, Clarkson sounds spectacular.
But the refrain reads, "Dumb plus dumb equals you. How else to explain the choice of a song such as "Einstein," with its tortured, mathematically illiterate organizing metaphor? Some of the song's verses are fun just because they're so ostentatiously foolish.
On second thought, I kind of love that performance, in its goofy way. Far better is the kind of crisp vocal work Clarkson brings to a vocal hook worthy of her dramatized agony". Your guess is as good as mine. Credits adapted from the Stronger liner notes. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Redirected from Einstein Kelly Clarkson song.
