Welcome back, ya’ll. I hope since our last encounter, you’ve been cramming lots of Prince EA down those ear canals…but I’m also hoping that you’ve left some room….’cause I come bearing more of that gooood good.
Who Dat, Harpo? Sam Smith
Hailin’ From: England, United Kingdom
Spunky Calls It (Genre): Blue Eyed Gritty R&B w/A Side of Pop
What’s to Like?: I don’t know if it’s just me and my somewhat addictive personality, but every now and again, I come across a song that I can’t help but listen to over and over and over again. I’m talking, HOURS of ‘on-repeat’ action, people. Sam Smith’s Nirvana is one of those songs. First, there’s his arresting voice that constitutes the perfect trifecta of smooth, strong and intoxicating …kind of like a top-shelf single malt Scotch Whisky. Goes down nice and easy and leaves you with that warm tingling sensation. And those high notes? Oh, yes sir, yes ma’am. But if that weren’t enough, there’s the content. The lyrics paint pictures on the heart’s canvas that we can all relate to.
It’s too late to run away from it all
It’s too late to get away from it all
I’m done with running so I give in to you
This moment has caused a reaction
Resulting in our reattachment
Oh you take me to nirvana
I don’t think this will last
But you’re here in my arms
Reconnecting with that ex that you knew you should have left alone because it obviously, would never actually work out, but decide to go with it anyway because…it just feels right in that moment? Well, that moment is Nirvana.
If you’re interested, Sam has a new album dropping in the U.K. and U.S. on May 26, 2014 and June 17, 2014, respectively. I’ve already given it a listen, and trust me, you should definitely be interested.
