Something Just Like This : Song Review

We all come across book and movie reviews, so why not review something that is our only companion on certain days, i.e. Music.

“Something just like this” is a song of EDM genre released by American electronic music duo The Chainsmokers and British rock band Coldplay in 2017. The song reached the top ten of many charts around the world and was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards. It is one of my personal favourites.

The intro begins with a serene voice and tone that transports you to a different realm as the lyrics highlight captivating stories of history, stories that we all have heard while growing up and which created a sense of awe in our minds.

The message behind the song is that we all yearn for something great in our lives, something that we all can hold onto and call our own with pride. That is the “Something just like this” being talked about. Between the verse and the chorus, there comes a drop in the vocalist’s tone, as he questions his purpose in life and realises that some things are a myth, and people just want to create a niche for themselves.

The song has a subtle balance of good beats that pump you with adrenaline and serene tones that relax your mind, along with the fusion of the keyboard and electric guitar that take you on a musical journey and all this is what makes the song evergreen.

The song ends with an uplifting and inspirational beat igniting a spark within us to stand up, face and fight against our failures, and continue on the pathway to achieve greatness, one step at a time.

The YouTube link for the song is here. The song is worth listening to, if you haven’t already. 🙂
