I'm a little biased - but in my opinion, record labels are artistically flawed - and therefore just about every decision they make is horrible. Singles especially. If a song doesn't fit into some canned, sterile formula, it's not likely to get airplay.
There's a much better unplugged version, but they aren't wearing makeup. And what could be better than to have someone with a cat face singing a ballad. I hate to admit it, but I actually like this song, not so much the makeup though.
