Katharine Mcphee - Touch Me (NBC's Smash)


NBC's drama Smash is the story of a Broadway musical going from book to stage and all the ups and downs that go with it. The musical in question is all about Marilyn Monroe and there are two actresses vying for the coveted role, one who has some stage experience and the naive girl from Iowa. Katharine McPhee plays Karen the wide eyed idealist hoping for her break on stage and she has to work her way through a vipers nest of people out to tear her down and use her in their own machinations. This track is just that, she is being used as an unwitting pawn. The song was written and produced by Ryan Tedder and it is amazing. I think it should be a number one hit and I'm shocked that it isn't. It's one of the best moments on the show and I think Katharine just shines in the song.
