Song 22: James Arthur- Naked
Artist: James Arthur
Today’s song was recommended to me by my friend and coworker Amaris after we had a really good chat. She said this song reminded her of me so we listened to it together at work today. I think what she was trying to get at with her comment is my tendency to have a bleeding heart and be a hopeless romantic. A quick listen to the lyrics would suggest it at least. I had never heard the song or artist before despite him clearly being very popular – this song has 44 million hits on YouTube and was released just over a month ago. My first impressions after a couple listens are that the artist has quite a nice voice and that I can easily see why he’s so successful.
365 New Tunes is a project inspired by a tweet from the band Stars on December 31st, 2017 encouraging people to listen to a new song every day of the next year.
