Annaleigh Ashford: "It's Too Late" (Carole King). It's so positive! She literally says, "Still I'm glad for what we had, and how I once loved you." The sound of the song isn't sad and pitiful like other break-up songs that make you want to cry and eat too much ice cream and wear clothes too many days in a row. It's got a cool drum part and makes you want to dance in a smooth 70s kind of way. There is also a sensible saxophone solo.
