Bareilles Mocks Label With Love Song
Songwriter Sara Bareilles wrote her summer anthem LOVE SONG to annoy her record company.
The Californian singer penned the hit track after label bosses at Epic Records rejected a batch of her freshly penned songs.
So the star decided to get her own back - by blasting her bosses through her sarcastic lyrics.
She says, "Love Song is about my record label. I turned in some new songs, and they didn't seem interested.
"That shook me up and made me feel as if I didn't know how to write music any more. It was a real confidence-buster. So I started thinking about how I could please them, maybe by writing a love song.
"But that in itself made me angry. I got really fed up that I'd even allowed myself to become so insecure that I was letting them decide what was good."
