Lorrie Morgan - "Something in Red"
Some will call it bathetic and over-the-top; I call it the essence of drama, thanks in large part to Morgan's vocal. (I'm not sure she can sing any other way.) Today it sounds adult contemporary, but back in '91 this was an absolute country smash, a gigantic career record; unfortunately, it also became the record Morgan couldn't overcome. The string arrangement's a bit much at times, sure, but this is Such. A. Big. Record. And it kills.
