Not my first post about alcohol related music. I wrote about James Arthur’s new single here and how it has alcohol in it, but this is straight out drinking of alcohol as a form of escapism. What are we escaping? The bitter sweet memories of an ex lover.
This song is brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. I sing it at work quite often when it happens to pop up on the playlist and it is just a piece of art to me. The song does not send out a great message in honesty, but it is real. People do this, people go out and get drunk when they are heartbroken. People look for escapes from the harsh realities of the world around them. People feel pain.
Not the first Ed Sheeran song I have posted either. I posted this one back in April of this year. Different job, different mindset, different time. Still the same me I guess. Still a little dazed and confused, but now mixed in with a bit in pain. Ah well, keep on going right?
