Cyndi Thomson is a one-hit wonder from the early aughts. To my knowledge, she only ever released a single album. My friend Tammy hated it–she insisted that all the songs sounded the same. I think she’s right about that, but I still pop it into my car’s CD player from time to time.

This is her one hit and the best song on the album. I think we’ve all been where she is–saying the exact opposite of what we mean when the stakes are high or our ego is at risk.
