My experience with Mr. Niall Horan is limited to the One Direction hits, and a couple of his songs as a solo artist. I actually like “This Town” and “Too Much To Ask,” but a single he released at the end of 2019 has the worst lyrics I’ve ever heard in both my ears.
If you can bear, take a listen…
The YouTube video has over 32 mil views, so maybe I’m in the minority here. Honestly, the video was just OK but he has rabid fans so they’ll watch (and like) anything. Even the song itself… lots of praise via the YouTube comments but Niall has stated he wrote the song in a day… and I believe it. The lyrics are so very simple, too simple. Literally nothing happens in the “story”. He says he likes this woman, and wants her number. That’s it.
I’m also going to venture a guess that this tattoo he says he’ll get (“I want your number tattooed on my arm”) will be one of his biggest life regrets. I’m sorry if you’ve ever lost 3 minutes of your life listening to this song… but maybe I can make it better.
Try this one and hopefully it will cleanse your ear holes (and for more about this Maroon 5 video, click here)…
Thanks for stopping by!
