Song of The Week 1/18

This week, the first week of 2018, I’ve been mostly listening to Major Lazer’s Be Together.

I can’t remember where or when I heard this the first time, but I know it wasn’t when it was released. I’m sort of a fan of Major Lazer, but I’ve only really listened to the singles that were played on Finnish radio stations, and they’re Watch Out For This and Jah No Partial. I guess it might be that I just stumbled on this while YouTube hopping and I saved it for later. And found it again a week ago.

I’m one of those (perhaps) annoying people that find a song, then listen to it seventymillion times in a row, forget them for a while and then put them into the sort of normal rotation. This song is no different. It’s been played this week probably thirty five times and it’s a lot, considering the time I have for listening what I want, instead of cartoons on the telly or some shitty radio station at work.

I love the rhythm, I love the melody and I love the singer’s voice. Particularly I love the “choir” at the beginning. And as strange as it seems coming from me, your friendly neighbourhood Larry Mullen jr. (i don’t think the lyrics are worth a shit to be honest i think it’s all about drums), I love the lyrics too. Plus the song gave me an instant fic-feel too. I mean even before I heard the lyrics.

So without any longer or deeper explanations, but just because it’s a bloody marvellous song, here’s this week’s Song of the Week, Be Together by Major Lazer.
