I haven’t publicly obsessed on a song in a while, so here we go.
One of my current favorites is “Happy Song” by Bring The Horizon
It’s a song that has an optimistic message without musically sounding like an optimistic song. I like that in a song. It’s a little sneaky that way.
From the cheerleader opening …
S.P.I.R.I.T! Spirit! Let’s hear it!
To the “cheer the fuck up” message …
The world has coalesced into one giant mess of hate and unrest. So let’s all sing along a little God damn louder to a happy song and pretend it’s all okay.
To the “doesn’t that feel better” at the end.
Let’s sing along a little fucking louder. Well, don’t you feel so much better?
It is a song about the darkness in the world, and how it may impact us in many ways, sometimes just singing out loud can make it all better. I know it helps me.
