After the feisty, in-your-face, punk/pop of "Girlfriend", Avril Lavigne switches to ballad mode for the follow up. While "Girlfriend" divided opinion due to its immaturity (despite being insanely catchy), "When You're Gone" proves she can still excel at more grown up tracks. It may not be quite as breathtaking as "I'm With You", but it is nevertheless a very emotional song that gets better with each listen. Coupled with a suitably tear-jerking video, this has all the hallmarks of a huge hit.
