14* She looks so perfect

I like this song but I’m still not sure if it is because I’ve heard it too much (not that I play it but I’ve heard it everywhere I’ve visit this week) or becuase it is actually cool and gots a great rhytm combined with their rocker voices that by the way make it seem that they are older… Anyway, today’s song is from “5SOS” which means “5 Seconds of Summer” (lol well done with the name, I wish I had 5 seconds of summer right now!)

I have to admit that before today I’ve just heard people (mainly girls) talking about this rock band but I didn’t actually know them, now -Thank Google- I know that they are 4 Australian boys 😀

And I have to say that I find their musical and physical proposal interesting…

First, musical:

I mean that at least from this song I’ve heard “She looks so perfect” I wonder if too many “hey” were necessary, if is not a cliché that as other boybands they try to tear down the eternal cliché about “being too young to…” (leastwise they clarify that even as teenagers we do work hard and that’s why we never give up) and suggesting running away of “the town” (luckily they planned the proposal including the ticket and a diamond ring), choosing “the american apparel underwear” and “you name tattoed in an arrow heart” as part of their chorus rectifying -to me- their US influence, something that alone wouldn’t be wrong but it just makes them seem too american (which they are not) and “just one more boyband” of the thousands of american boybands that already exist… for once I would like to listen something more australian+ because there must be a difference, right?

On the other hand, physical:

I can’t deny that what I first observed was how well-planned are their styles! I mean, there’s a blond singer with blue eyes, a dark haired guitar player, a brown haired drum player and if you dind’t like any of them, there’s also a heavy-looking guitar player with blond AND black hair (!)

But in case the variety between them wasn’t a marketing strategy to get more girls, bravo.

Finally, I haven’t watch the official music video of this song until today but it’s refreshing thanks to the different people and situations, more “freaks” than “hot girls”, i would say rare rather than perfect and true instead of completely plastic, PLUS it gets weirder funnier at the middle when EVERYONE starts undressing -lol- ENJOY!

…And to sing out loud the lyrics

Simmer down, simmer down
They say we’re too young now to amount to anything else
But look around, we worked too damn hard for this just to give it up now
If you don’t swim, you’ll drown
But don’t move, honeyYou look so perfect standing there
In my American Apparel underwear
And I know now, that I’m so down
Your lipstick stain is a work of art
I got your name tattooed in an arrow heart
And I know now, that I’m so downHey, hey!
(…)

Let’s get out, let’s get out
‘Cause this deadbeat town’s only here just to keep us down
While I was out, I found myself alone just thinking
If I showed up with a plane ticket
And a shiny diamond ring with your name on it
Would you wanna run away too?
‘Cause all I really want is you

You look so perfect standing there
In my American Apparel underwear
And I know now, that I’m so down
I made a mixtape straight out of ’94
I’ve got your ripped skinny jeans lying on the floor
And I know now, that I’m so down
(…)
