I’m about 210% obsessed with this song~♡ ………(゜∀゜)………。~♡~♡~!!!!!!!
“Rather Be” is like nothing I’ve heard before and honestly it didn’t hit me as being awesome~♥ until at least a couple of listens by means of a sort of accident as it had been playing on t.v. in the background via music video on a couple of occasions. Firstly up front is a most interesting mixture of musical genre~mingling which is going on here as it’s part classical, part electronic and part poppy love with this amazing groove which kicks in fully with the pre-chorus section at 58 seconds with the lyrics “…With every step we take, Kyoto to The Bay strolling so casually. We’re different and the same, get you another name….” it’s really a great hook!
And again at 2:17 with the second pre-chorus an added variation of a gentle violin weeping adds an amazing touch too. And just how the keyboards play variations of the melodies along with the strings and a perfectly grooving beat will have you feeling it and moving in no time!
And really when you consume this uber-catchy song with its music video it’s quite the experience!…. as the video alone actually is most creative: okay think reoccurring freaky dream, some possibly cryptic symbols which appear several times (some more obvious than others) and even a touch of Mission Impossible to boot it all =)! And just a little note: the girl appearing in the video isn’t Jess Glynne just to be sure ^^.
In any case if you haven’t yet heard this song or seen its video be sure to check it out it’s really great!
No particular reason for this ↓↓ But I did have sushi two days in a row ^^.
