Review: Lisa Loeb – Stay (I Missed You) (Pop)

This review covers the pop track Lisa Loeb – Stay (I Missed You).

This track was released in 1994 as a single.

The track starts with a kick and some guitar work. The vocals then come in. A high hat is then added. The vocals continue on with the verse as the drum kit becomes more full.

The vocals then hit the main chorus. After that, the vocals then go into the next verse. Some backup vocals then make an appearance. Backup vocals rejoin the track briefly before the vocals go straight into the next round of the main chorus.

From there, the vocals take the track into another verse. It doesn’t take long before the vocals take the track into the next round of the main chorus. The track slows down and then the track just ends.

The strongest part of the track is the vocals. They are pretty decent. They can be a bit difficult to follow at times.

The lyric structure is why the vocals can be a bit difficult to follow. You get to the main chorus and it borders on being a brief whisper before going onto other verses. I find this concept odd. There’s nothing wrong with being different as long as you have a well executed track because of it. In this case, I don’t think it helped this track out. As a result, it’s just a jumble of words to me. All verse, no chorus.

Overall, this ends up being a fairly average track. It has some good vocals, but not a whole lot more beyond the guitars that make this track interesting. The main chorus is virtually non-existent and, as a result, the lyrics can be a bit difficult to follow. So, fairly average, but nothing big.
