Jar of Hearts - Christina Perri

I had to share Christina Perri's 'Jar of Hearts' since I have been listening to it on repeat for a few days, just taking it in and figuring out what it is that makes me like the song so much.   I have come to the conclusion that it's the mixture of Christina's voice (she has a clarity with a dash of gritty edge that pulls at me) and the tempo versus the lyrics.   Usually an 'angry' song would be rushed or fast or have an audible beat- but this is a power ballad so it hits you in the gut with emotion and overwhelms you.   I'd love to hear an acoustic version, which I bet if I browsed YouTube for a minute I could probably find, but not for today.   The video is visually interesting and beautiful too- and since I have been wearing combat boots for the last few months I relate to the fashion choices d(*-*)b
