4.5 not bad ;-)
*****
You can't help but feel good and happy when this song comes on. The music video and the melody is really good. The lyrics are spot on. UK#6 and Ireland#1.
*****
Good song.
*****
Very good song :).

It's a good track, but I'd have thought she was a good 30-40 years older when I heard this hehe.
******
excellent
*****
She has a shocker of a voice but it's a good song. Great in fact.
******
AMAZING.

Really like this song but I just can't give it a 6.
*****
Her raspy voice with the soul melodies really made this a memorable hit.
***
What do you get when you put Macy Gray up against 100 pitbull terriers?
A HAPPY FUCKING ENDING!

In all honesty, I don't mind this, despite the fact that her voice is quite annoying.

Also, I've always found when listening to this song that the line "my world crumbles when you are not near" sounds like "I wore goggles when you were not near".
*****
Good
***
Definitely conflicted on this, because while fourteen years ago I would have enjoyed it more, I just struggle with her voice sometimes. 3.5
******
I didn't like it when I was a kid for no apparent reason, but now I'm older I think this is a classic. I still hear it out and about quite regularly, always waiting for that key change!
