Is Kelly Clarkson Being Forced Into Katy Perry’s Cast-Offs?

After all the speculation regarding Kelly Clarkson’s “My Life Would Suck Without You,” word from my tipsters—as well as the folks at Popjustice—is that it sounds pretty much exactly like “Since U Been Gone,” only minus anything resembling a bridge. In further “let’s stick with what works” news, MJ’s Big Blog is hinting that the above Katy Perry track, “Long Shot,” might be one of the songs on the album. There is one good thing about this little piece of news—which is way too reminiscent of the whole “rejected Avril Lavigne songs” flap that surfaced around the release of My December— and it is the fact that Perry’s vocals on the verses remind me of a way mannered take on the far superior “Go” by the British band Kaito. A clip of that is after the jump.

Kaito “Go”

What a good band they were.

Also, by request, here’s that Clive Davis interview with the snippet of “Suck” buried in the background:
