Pain and emotional suffering are a part of life and something we all experience at some point. But when that pain is delivered to us from someone we love and care about it makes it that much harder to bear. However, the up side to it all is once you come out the other side ultimately stronger and more self-assured, there is something so satisfying about telling the person who hurt you but who STILL WON’T LEAVE YOU ALONE TO politely f**k off.
Sam Smith’s vocal quality means there is always an edge of vulnerability to whatever he sings and if this song had been produced as a ballad you just wouldn’t believe him when he declares that he wants to “restart”. But Zane Lowe’s optimistic production means we always feel as though we’re heading in the right direction on the road to happiness and personal bliss. Whilst a similarly themed song such as Taylor Swift’s ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’ might stomp on its ex’s foot and run away, this song gives a polite smile, turns and leaves.
