I Could Break Your Heart Any Day Of The Week

Album: Amanda Leigh (2009)
  • This was the lead single from American singer-songwriter Mandy Moore's sixth studio album Amanda Leigh, her first release since she married the alternative rock artist Ryan Adams.
  • The song's lyric, which Moore co-wrote, appears to transform the former teen singer into an empowered woman. She explained to Michael Cidoni of the Associated Press: "It's very tongue in cheek, not to be taken to heart by any means. It's sassy, if you will, and a little edgier and no-nonsense - a side of myself that doesn't really come out too often. But it was sort of fun to go there for the sake of the music."
  • Moore (from her website): "It's definitely a pop-ditty but more in vein of Todd Rundgren or Harry Nilsson than the typical fare the word 'pop' tends to conjure up."
  • "Amanda Leigh" is Moore's first and middle names.
