I’ve had the displeasure of listening to Sam Smith early in the day. Twice in a row. I’m not talking about a music by him, i’m talking about the full album. I think he even cries in this one. I don’t particularly dislike Sam Smith. But really, do we need lyrics like:
Maybe I’m done
Maybe it’s true
Maybe I had one chance
And I lost it with you
Well, Sam Smith, that’s life. Pick yourself up and write an upbeat song. How about singing about being happy ’cause you just lost a fuckton of weight? I don’t know bro, but it doesn’t seem that difficult. Difficult is listening to you bringing people down. I swear, a hour of Sam Smith classics and my friend became catatonic. “hey, you ok? meh” Or change careers, i’ve heard you’re only too good at goodbyes. Anyway, i’ve got nothing against Sam Smith, it will pop up in some of my playlists every once and awhile and that’s fine. But man, is hard when you’re trying to bring your friend out of a blackhole of emotions and letting people in and this guy goes:
I’m never gonna let you close to me
Even though you mean the most to me
‘Cause every time I open up, it hurts
So I’m never gonna get too close to you
Even when I mean the most to you
In case you go and leave me in the dirt
You’re killing me, man. Life is hard as it is, do you really need to make a point of it? You making my job harder. GO BE MISERABLE BY YOUR FUCKING SELF. Sorry for the caps but i want to be clear. I’ve heard you have a Christmas song coming out soon. Don’t fucking dare, man. Don’t go and mess it up. Don’t make “Little drummer boy” lose his drum and cry about it ! Think this through. I’m gonna give you a pass this one time, Sam Smith. But beware, i’m on to you.
I can’t be mad at Sam Smith, not really. He looks like a cherubic junkie. Go on Sam Smith but be positive.
I had to write this because this one friend of mine’s loves this guy’s music for some reason. And i had to endure it because of her. So friend, if you read this, every time you put Sam Smith on during the morning (or anytime for that matter) you make my job harder. Just so you know what you put me through. Fucking Sam Smith, jeez.
PS – i do like the remix of “i’m not the only one” with A$AP Rocky so there’s that.
