"Because you had a bad day, you're takin' one down, you sing a sad-"

A catchy enough pop song that owes its success to American Idol, which used the track throughout its fifth season as the soundtrack to the farewell montage of cast-off contestants. Canadian singer-songwriter Daniel Powter uses his chorus to advise forcing smiles to soldier through a rough day. Perhaps some failed singers would have preferred Ryan Seacrest telling them to watch that the door doesn't hit them on the way out. Veronica pays homage to this one-hit wonder as she smugly acknowledges Domonick's recent string of bad luck.
