So here we are ladies and gentlemen, Don’t Stop. The một giây single off 5 giây of Summer’s debut album of the same name. Now the tiêu đề lets us all know exactly what this thing is gonna be about so there’s no use trying to hide it. They wrote a sex song, I see you’ve grown up 5SoS, good for you! Here’s a freaking cookie. The âm nhạc video starts out with an underwear gag with them all in superhero outfits, joyful. I am filling with happiness….
The âm nhạc kicks in to what at first seems like a normal pop punk song, and then it all goes downhill from there. Yeah, that happened fast, I know. The first line is “You’re like perfection/Some kind of Holiday” which has got to be one of the dumbest opening lines for a song ever. There’s an art to nghề viết văn lyrical hooks in a song people, and bạn clearly have Mất tích the paint brush, and the paint, and you’ve broken the canvas. But I digress, the blandness goes on until the pre chorus where things start to get a bit interesting, bạn won’t believe it people. These guy’s ripped off One Direction, now that is how bạn get to the lowest point bạn can possibly get to. The line states that “Everybody wants to take bạn trang chủ tonight/But I’m gonna find a way to make bạn mine” Now while not directly ripping any lyrics from One Direction’s boy band bash, this line reeks of recycled garbage made specifically to get every girl that hears it to fall in tình yêu with the pretty boys in the band. Except the drummer, drummers never win.
Wow all this and we’re only at the first chorus, this is gonna be fun. The opening bit says “Don’t stop doin what you’re doin/Every time bạn di chuyển to the beat it gets harder for me”. Oh Ha-ha that is so clever and funny, well done bạn amateurs. The chorus’ instrumentalism sounds suspiciously like ‘Wendy Clear’ bởi Blink-182, just without the solid drum beat and spaced đàn ghi ta, guitar work. The Chorus then states “Don’t stop doin what your doin/Cause when bạn walk in the room/you Got all eyes on you/and bạn know it know it know it.” Well I didn’t think they’d have the guts to actually rip off One Direction again, I mean how stupid do bạn have to be to rip off an awful boy band? Oh wait, they’re a boy band too, so they all write the same âm nhạc anyways.
The rest of the song is practically the same, with only two lines in what I’m sure they find to be a bridge, being the only thing left but a repeating chorus. They are trying to make an innocent sex song here, and that just doesn’t work. They listed their primary influence as Blink-182, which would explain the sound of Blink during the chorus, but if they are pulling their sound from Blink, lyrical inspiration is clearly from boy bands because as I recall, when Blink 182 wrote a sex song it went something like this. “And when the ngày ends I'm sure she feels sorrow/The lonely guy I am, I like to watch her change/I've been here two days, I'll sure be here tomorrow/I'd eat her out if she were on my bữa tối, bữa ăn tối plate”. But these are the people that have lyrically ripped off one of the worst acts in the past 4 years so I don’t put it past them to be into the same moron level of songwriting as others.
thêm on musical ability and this is where it shows how amateur they really are. The âm bass, tiếng bass, bass line in this song is something a person would write for their first song on bass. It pretty much stays on one string the entire time, hardly moving frets. It simply follows the guitars. The two guitars are doing almost the exact same thing most of the song, meaning the inclusion of two is pretty much pointless. The drumming seems oddly out of time ever so slightly, as well as taking up less sonic không gian than Ringo Starr. Besides the occasional drum fill bạn really forget the drums are there, on hàng đầu, đầu trang of being drop dead basic, the mixing is done so that bạn can barely here them. Hell, I didn’t even here the âm bass, tiếng bass, bass in here at all either, I had to look up the âm bass, tiếng bass, bass part to see if it even existed.
Who would’ve thought that anyone would rip off One Direction, it’s a new level of low. It is beyond my comprehension what they were thinking. The lyrics are designed in the classic boy band style of messing with a girl’s insecurities to get her to fall in tình yêu with the band members. And the corny level is beyond the normal levels. Ripping off another band musically in the chorus, but without any flare of their own during the rest of the song too, way to go people. This band formed in 2011, and bạn think that during their years of playing together they would have found out how to do thêm than a 13 năm Old’s nhà để xe band musically. It’s quite sad really, when teenagers can play better than a so called group of professional musicians. And when Tom Delonge is a better singer than one of your own, please get lessons.
