Flashback Song Of The Week: Katharine McPhee - Over It

Over It is the first single to be released from the eponymous album by Katharine McPhee, the American Idol season five (2006) runner-up. The song was reportedly described by McPhee as "the only real pop song on the record" and as being "a very sultry song about young love". The song was produced by Billy Steinberg and Josh Alexander, and written by Alexander, Steinberg and Ruth-Anne Cunningham, the writers of JoJo's Too Little Too Late. The song is available for listening via online music services such as AOL and MySpace, courtesy of RCA Records. McPhee has since stated that this was not "[her] favorite song" and she did not want her "song to be something that [she] was a part of."

In the song, McPhee sings over a sultry beat driven by acoustic guitars about letting go of the person one loves because one does not share the same feeling. The narrator complains about how their lover cheats on them, and is betraying their trust.

The song is somewhat tongue-in-cheek in that McPhee describes several qualities about her ex-boyfriend, while at the same time she seems to fixate on them, showing she is not fully over him.
