ToC Critic’s Pick: Kalie Shorr, ‘He’s Just Not That Into You’ [Listen]
Kalie Shorr's ability to spin a serious message into a pop melody more contagious than the common cold turns up again on "He's Not That Into You," a sugary new song from an upcoming project.
The #LetTheGirlsPlay singer gives good advice during this delectable bit of country candy. To some, her words may be harsh — but those are the people who most need someone to tell them, "Girl, he's just not that into you!"
The "Fight Like a Girl" singer gives a wakeup call to any woman being straight up played. Some of the experiences seem too personal — which one of these three Song Suffragettes writers wants to take ownership of the opening verse? Shorr has a great sense of identity, and "He's Just Not That Into You" stays true to her pop-influenced style but still say something new, and meaningful.
Did You Know?: "He's Not That Into You" was written by fellow #LetTheGirlsPlay singers Emily Reid and Lena Stone.

Kalie Shorr's "He's Just Not That Into You" Lyrics:
"Dressed up, at the bar you showed up 15 minutes late / Cause you thought that you’d be the one to make him wait / You’re sure he’s got a good reason, you’re sure he’ll get there soon / So ordering another drink and acting like it’s cool."
"That he says he doesn’t want something serious / And you tell yourself you like that he’s mysterious / He’s just busy, no the go and / His stupid phone is broken / And you say it till it almost sounds true / But he’s just not that into you."
"So good at disappearing that he’s almost like a ghost / And it’s anybody’s guess where he’s been and where he goes / I ain’t saying he’s a liar but he ain’t telling the truth / He’s as good at making out as he is as making an excuse."
"He’s hung up on his ex / He never got your text / He’s gonna say he’s sorry and you’re gonna forget."
"I've said it but I've heard it too / He's not that into you."
