Behold! The most underrated Harry/Louis song ever!
Considering Louis’ iTunes Ping account has been messed with since I first discovered the importance of this song, I can’t provide screenshots (for now), but basically:
Back in 2010, while Louis was on the X Factor, he wrote about this song on his Ping account, saying that he got a chance to meet/speak with the lead singer, who was a great guy, and that he was really loving this song at the moment.
And here’s the thing. The lead singer of The Feeling wrote this song about falling in love with his best guy friend. With lines like “I can’t be your friend unless I pretend” and “you’ve got my heart in a headlock, you stop the blood make my head soft”. It’s a song about being brave enough to take a chance in love, as to not miss an opportunity. It’s about feeling a way you’ve never felt before. The way everything amplifies at the end of the song literally feels like falling in love.
Louis falling in love with Harry is one of the absolute most beautiful parts of their story, and this song not only themes that era, but was a song Louis personally listened to and made note of enjoying at the time. There’s just this underlying intensity and honesty that makes it such a powerful song…
