a song that reminds you of summertime

anonymous asked:

Hi! Why do u think harry said SOTT was the most literal song on the album when literally sweet creature is?....

This is purely my opinion, but I actually don’t think of either song as very literal. 

I will use this video to discuss Sweet Creatures:

Information about the song:

Produced By: Tyler Johnson, Kid Harpoon, Alex Salibian, Jeff Bhasker
Written By: Thomas Hull, Harry Styles
Release Date: May 2, 2017
Recorded At: Jeff Bhasker’s Home Studio, Geejam Hotel Recording Studio
Executive Produced By: Jeff Bhasker
Label: Erskine Records distributed by Columbia Records

Sign of the Times was a song containing apocalyptic, eschatological symbols describing a separation and an impossible escape. 

In his Rolling Stone interview, the song was described as a mother’s parting words to her newborn:

“Most of the stuff that hurts me about what’s going on at the moment is not politics, it’s fundamentals,” Styles says. “Equal rights. For everyone, all races, sexes, everything. …  'Sign of the Times’ came from ‘This isn’t the first time we’ve been in a hard time, and it’s not going to be the last time.’ The song is written from a point of view as if a mother was giving birth to a child and there’s a complication. The mother is told, ‘The child is fine, but you’re not going to make it.’ The mother has five minutes to tell the child, ‘Go forth and conquer.’”

Perhaps there were lyrics that were literal in Harry’s biography. We’ll never know which ones they are. I think the same applies for Sweet Creature. Is it autobiographical? Maybe. I can only discuss what the song says and how it chooses to say it. 

I think the title of a song is always very telling. If I Could Fly is about a melancholic yearning, even though the refrain is “for your eyes only.”

keep it positive - a wildly incongruous mix of music to lift you out of a forced-smiling, grit-your-teeth, gird-up-your-loins kinda weekday and remind you that you can do it or just get through it, featuring some songs with no theme at all that I just find jazzy on a rando Tuesday
