Christina Perri definitely has an incredible and soothing voice! The song is beautiful, heartbreaking, powerful, and incredibly well constructed that you will have this song on repeat after the first listen.

All of her songs are about her, and they are usually about love. "Jar of Hearts" has been described as an autobiographical song for Christina Perri, recalling an ex-boyfriend who returned to her life, much to her dismay, propelled her to move back to L.A.

In the music video which embodies the sad yet empowering nature of the song, Perri (in a white dress and combat boots), along with backup dancers, fight their feelings against the man who has been collecting his "jar of hearts." I love it for the striking visuals, haunting melodies and aching lyrics...

I've heard this song on the radio a few times though never knew who the singer was.. Sometimes her voice reminds me of Avril Lavigne so I assumed it was AL.. Now I know! :-D Love the lyrics!

Bella Enveeus said... @ 3/8/11 12:32 AM

Err but don't really like the guy in the music video.. Haha

iamthewitch said... @ 3/8/11 9:28 AM

Ohh I always listen to this song on the radio.. love her vocals.. and you're right, I can feel her pain from the song itself. It's brilliant! And it's even more touching now to know that she wrote it from her life experience..
