“Like I Used To” is the perfect sweet breakup song, if that is even possible. Cally Rhodes tunes into the emotions behind a failing relationship and sings a sweet song about moving on and saying goodbye. The bittersweetness of an ending relationship is perfectly captured by Cally’s sweet and soothing lyrics. “Like I Used To” keeps with the British pop singers brand of honest, melodic, and memorable pop songs about love and heartbreak. This song as well as her other singles break away from the traditional love song mold and wisely, I think, even touch on the mental health and logic behind love and breakups. In “Like I Used To”, Rhodes says, “We’ll tear down each other … I find it hard to tell myself”. This pop singers awareness really shines in her music making it spectacular and multidimensional pop music.
