the chainsmokers something just like this coldplay new song 2017 lyrics review

We really wanted “Something Just Like This” to make this week a whole lot better. The Chainsmokers and Coldplay premiered this song as a surprise performance at BRIT Awards 2017 that happened last night. The full length lyric video was released soon after and the song captures the best of both the artists.

The Chainsmokers also announced their upcoming debut album ‘Memories… Do Not Open’ which will be released on April 7, 2017 and “Something Just Like This” will feature on the album.

The Chainsmokers have outdone themselves with the music on this single and Coldplay’s Chris Martin never disappoints on the vocals. That combination makes this track one for the top charts.

Lyrics Review of “Something Just Like This” by The Chainsmokers

Verse 1

I’ve been reading books of old
The legends and the myths
Achilles and his gold
Hercules and his gifts
Spiderman’s control
And Batman with his fists
And clearly I don’t see myself upon that list

The singer tries compare himself with the heroes that he knows and he clearly fails. He wants to be oh-so-powerful like the stories of the legends he read about as a child. He believes that he needs to do everything to his woman-everything in the world-to make her happy. But little does he realize that that is not what women are after.

Pre-chorus gives the answer to the above…

She said, where’d you wanna go?
How much you wanna risk?
I’m not looking for somebody
With some superhuman gifts
Some superhero
Some fairytale bliss
Just something I can turn to
Somebody I can kiss

Her reply is what we predicted in the above annotation. She just wants someone whom she can hold tight, go on adventures with and kiss throughout the day. It is really that simple. And among all the songs about gold-diggers and cheaters and hoes, this is what “Something Just Like This” stands out.

Bridge is a whole lot of vocals by Chris Martin…

I want something just like this
Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo
Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo
Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo
Oh I want something just like this
Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo
Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo
Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo

I’m not going to try to explain this…

Chorus

Oh I want something just like this
I want something just like this

Chorus is a nice repetition of the title of the song blended with some soothing EDM. The Chainsmokers do not overcook their music and hence even EDM can be tolerated with such a sweet song as this.

The rest of “Something Just Like This” keeps repeating the pre-chorus and verse 1 and we are not going to put all the lyrics here. We have analyzed the lyrics of the song and we think it really is a beautiful piece of music.

The song was written by Will Champion, Guy Berryman, Jonny Buckland, Andrew Taggart & Chris Martin and the lyric video is directed by James Zwaldo.

We think “Something Just Like This” is a really good track for The Chainsmokers’ upcoming debut album and if you like this track make sure to buy it from the links given above. Also make sure to pre-order their album and show them support.
