“Sure Be Cool If You Did” by Blake Shelton

Blake’s colorful TV presence on The Voice and controversy-stirring tweets often obscure the fact that the guy can really sing.

Here, Blake’s voice is truly rich and expressive on what is an otherwise run-of-the-mill pickup tune. Save for the one line that men everywhere are probably itching to try on some unsuspecting female, You can’t shoot me down ’cause you already knocked me dead, the song has an all-too-familiar ring.

The now-obligatory references to drinking (“lemonade shooter,” in this case) and Chevy (pretty soon, the company’s going to start asking for royalties) are firmly in place, while melodically “Sure Be Cool If You Did” sounds much like Blake’s previous single “Over.”

Although this is likely headed for hitsville, the song really doesn’t go anywhere. The searing guitar breaks provide the most interesting components. Blake as usual sounds great, but he can’t rise above the song’s mediocrity.
