I am so excited to see Kelly Clarkson on February 16th in St. Paul that I decided to do my very own special 'Countdown to Kelly Clarkson'.

This countdown is entirely my opinion. It is just me picking my favorite song off of each of Kelly's studio albums.

This song may or may not have been a single, but it is a song that I think deserves more respect and recognition.

In 2011, Kelly released her fifth studio album, Stronger. Stronger's debut single was "Mr. Know It All" and it was a solid first single, however, I remember the first time I listened to the whole album, one song instantly stuck out to me and that song was "Dark Side."

It starts with that music box sample and I was hooked. Plus, "Dark Side" is all about someone loving you unconditionally. The good and the bad, the light and the dark. Again, Kelly just gets me! We all want to be loved and validated!

"Dark Side" went on to be the third single from the album, but I liked it before it was cool.

I would also like to add that if by some chance Kelly Clarkson is reading this, could you please cover "Dancing On My Own" by Robyn at your St. Paul show. Please and Thank You!
