Moore tells a young man that, if their relationship has any future at all, she needs "tender love and care" ("One Sided Love"). "Yo-Yo" cuts the string on a manipulative, up-and-down romance. Sweet love songs recall special bonds ("From Loving You," "When I Talk to You") and respect a guy for displaying emotion ("Cry"). With refreshing innocence, "You Remind Me," "It Only Took a Minute" and "Turn the Clock Around" capture the blush of newfound attraction—though they also buy into the overly romanticized notion of love at first sight.
Throwing caution to the wind, "17" rationalizes gratifying youthful lusts ("I don’t wanna do right/I just want you tonight . . . Save the best behavior for a little later/’Cause I’m only 17 . . . If I get burned/Well, it’ll be my heart to break"). Liner photos feature immodest attire.
The singer claims, "Sex is what sells now, but I’d rather be classy and not sell as many records." Not quite classy enough. Some good stuff, but "17" and a few racy pix will make many families think less of Moore.
