Colbie Caillat’s new single, “If You Love Me Let Me Go,” is a lovely mid-tempo ballad avec danceable beats with an electro-thump to them. I wouldn’t say it’s her best song ever, but I quite like it. I think it’s that electro feel that hooks me, more than anything. It’s like you’ve got some vanilla ice cream — and vanilla is a perfectly good flavor in my book — but then it’s better than your ordinary vanilla because it’s the kind with specks of actual vanilla beans it. In this case, the electro vibe equals those specks, making it stand out in today’s world of mediocre, radio-friendly pop.
