        I'm sorry, but I absolutely don't get it. It has no Avril vibe at all. She doesn't sound like Avril, and the song is not similar to any of Avrils song. It's pop-country. Avril has always been rock-pop. There might be a few songs that haven't been released, where she had some countrylike influences, but... this song is so not Avril.

        The song doesn't sound like Avril's song. However the first couple seconds is sound a bit like one of Av's song

        Taylor's voice reminds me of Avril's voice on 'Let go' era but I don't think that the song is like 'Complicated'... it's my opinion.

        It sounds somehow similar, yes, but the vibe is missing.

        Taylor is no Avril but the song does have a slight Avril vibe to it, kinda reminds me of Let Go wit a lot more spunk to it.

        Ughhh.. Avril related news please.. It doesn't sound like an Avril song, Avril "sings" in her songs and they have strong and catchy melodies, this is more like a rap, or someone telling a story, and how mature this song sounds like ever ever,,

        It does't really sound like an Avril but it somewhat sound like her back in her Let Go days.

        Yeah, it sounds a lot like complicated in the begining - it builds to the chorus and then the chorus is more of an anthem for young girls. Which is interesting this is the stuff that bugs me when producers ruin Avril and make her sing these same songs. bleh!

        It does sound very Avril, especially the first lines of the song. The chorus - not so much. However Taylor is definitely going more pop than she's ever been... This is probably the least country song I've heard her produce! Definitely inspired by our Av!

        Well, i think that this song is similar at the songs of Goodbye Lullaby, also the video of the song "You belong with me" of Taylor, it's similar at the video of "Girlfriend".
        But nobody can be like Avril, 'cause she is unique♥

        It has some Av's vibe, I like it! Hehe

        I don't think it sounds like Avril, Avril is more vibrant, and power! Taylor is more naive, and it's music sound more like teenager Tv series.
        Also, Avril is unique, no music could be like hers.

        It doesn't sound like Avril Lavigne at all. By the way Taylor's new song isn't Country anymore why are they still counting it as a "Country" music?
