I Don’t Wanna Live Forever review
Today felt longer than yesterday. My heart was unusually cold all day, with no intention of thawing. I grew restless in the afternoon and that restlessness lasted until then end of this sentence. I can’t imagine what life would be like If I was the only person alive. Recently, I saw Passengers, the movie, and the characters showed me how loneliness could drive a man mad. The loneliness that I felt just a few minutes ago tortured me, just like the empty void tortured Jim Preston. I couldn’t seem to find the right song to get my mind out of limbo; figuratively not literally. This torture almost drove me crazy.
Want to know who saved me?
Music gets old really fast when repeatedly heard. That’s why the release of music should be constant, like a moving train; so that people like me could stay sane and entertained. I had to stream at least 20 songs in my Tidal music library before I found the track that made my spine shiver. You wouldn’t believe whose vocals brought my lost mind out of limbo; I could hardly believe it myself. The track was I don’t Wanna Live Forever, and the artists are ZAYN and Taylor Swift.
“I don’t wanna live forever, if that means being alone everyday.”
Our token Pop star really exceeded my expectations with this track. It was like she finally stopped trying so hard and just expressed herself for real. The backbone of the track was as expected; desirable, seductive and tantalizing. It is apart of a soundtrack for a very sexual movie after all. The vocals from ZAYN were exceptionally expected, and Taylor’s were unexpectedly satisfying. It seems like she finally stopped acting like the good girl America has annoyingly painted her as. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, check out the video to this submissively dominant track below. The music makes the aesthetic seem so honest.
