Only because it’s Valentine’s Day will I post this special edition song of the week (I might do one for mother’s day too… We’ll see) I heard this gem ages ago and I listen to it every now and again. In case you’re wondering what the song is (which you should be) it’s ‘Happy Valentine’s Day’ by André 3000. This song is about love (quite clearly), I’m not sure that I’m going to get the meaning of this song right so if you’re interested then you should definitely check elsewhere or listen carefully. The song talks about falling in love (as I said earlier) and implies that everybody will fall in love at one point or another even if people don’t believe in falling in love. The final part of the song talks about a man who is in love with a girl but really tries hard not to admit it (something very common on the internet today)and ends with a very interesting line. To sum it up, everybody has feelings so there’s no point in hiding them because they’ll always show through.
Favourite line(s): … (I don’t have one)
I’ve seen people do what this song is talking about. Some people will talk about how they don’t believe in relationships despite being in one with someone that they clearly love and it makes no sense why they put up a front when it’s so easy to see through it. Personally, I think it’s silly to judge and lose respect for someone because they care about another person but being “cold hearted” seems to be the way forward for some.
Recommendation on how/when to listen: Valentine’s Day/doing Valentine’s Day esque things.
