One Direction's "What A Feeling" Lyrics Don't Make Sense, But It's Still A Great Song
Directioners, yet another Made in the A.M. song has descended from the heavens, otherwise known as the pre-order option on iTunes. Following the heart-breakingly flawless "Love You Goodbye," One Direction just dropped "What a Feeling." At the risk of making a horrid pun and being cliche, I'm going to go there and say this song gave me all of the feels.
In a video tweeted from the official One Direction Twitter, Louis Tomlinson shared his thoughts on "What a Feeling." "'What a Feeling,' I'll probably say again, is one of my favorite songs on the record just because that is one of the songs that just does give you kind of a completely different flavor to maybe what you're used to," Tomlinson explained. "It's kind of got a little Fleetwood [Mac] influence in there and just the whole feel of the song is 'feel good.' It's like one of those songs you can have playing with the roof down in your car, feeling like a bit of a chief."
Lyric-wise, this track is kind of all over the place, but it's still all sorts of fantastic. We start things off on a voyeuristic note, as they sing, "Through the wire, through the wire, through the wire / I'm watching her dance / Dress is catching the light / In her eyes there's no lies, no lies /There's no question, she's not in a disguise."
Don't worry, things take a turn for the better, as the band sings, "What a feeling to be right here beside you now / Holding you in my arms / When the air ran out and we both started running wild / The sky fell down." Tomlinson is totally on point citing Fleetwood Mac as a reference, as there's an ethereal quality to it not unlike "Dreams."
Adding to the hypnotizing element is when the band notes, "But you've got stars in your eyes / And I've got something missing tonight / What a feeling to be a king beside you, somehow / I wish I could be there now." The lyrics might be a little (a lot) confusing, but the hazy vibe of the song more than makes up for it.
