5 Seconds of Summer are up with their 2nd album 'Sounds Good Feels Good'. And believe me, it does sound good and feel good! Ever since I found out about this pop-rock Australian band, I was hooked. I loved all the songs off of their first album. The second album is really amazing. One thing is that there isn't much of a difference that I found in the 2 albums. The pattern is pretty much similar. But, it clearly shows how they've grown through their meaningful lyrics and music. Here are the songs in the album. I've included some favourite lyrics which will want you to get this album right away.
It's the kind of song that sets up an amazing base for the rest of the album. It has the perfect punk rock music to get you dancing.
2. She's Kinda Hot:
“They say we’re losers and we’re all alright with that
We’re the leaders of the not coming back
But we’re alright though.”
It isn't exactly among my favourites off of this album, because of the lyrics. But still it's kinda hot though.
3. Hey Everybody:
“It’s not the end of the world
Yeah we’ve all been there before.”
The “oh oh oh oh oh” vibe is really infectious and catchy.
4. Permanent Vacation:
You say you need some kind of medication
Situation: no motivation
Destination: permanent vacation.”
These are the most awesome lyrics. I could relate to it so well. And I find myself singing to them at the top of my voice.
5. JET BLACK HEART:
“Everybody’s got their demons
Even wide awake or dreaming.”
“Cause I’ve got a jet black heart
And there’s a hurricane underneath it
Trying to keep us apart.”
This is my #1 song currently. Firstly, I loved the title. And the minute I listened to it, I was hooked. I said to myself, "Just listen to the rest of the album and then keep listening to this." But I couldn't. It's just that unbelievably rocking.
6. Catch Fire:
This song has wonderful lyrics, so putting a few words seems unjust. The vibe is amazing and the music makes it surreal. You have got to love this one!
7. Safety Pin:
“Oh yeah this time, maybe this time
Two wrongs make a right
We'll safety pin, the pieces of our broken hearts back together.”
This song gives all hope to those dark and twisted people at the chance of finding true love. It's rad, in its entirety.
8. Waste the Night:
This one's not a lyrical genius. A few words keep going around. It will sort of take you into a trance. And the music at the end will leave you speechless.
“I wanna breathe you in like your vapor
I want to be the one you remember
I want to feel your love like the weather
All over me, all over me
I want to print our hands in the pavement
Savour your words, I won't ever waste them
Look in your eyes and know just what you miss
So lie to me, just lie to me.”
I think the main chorus part speaks for itself.
“How'd we drift so far away from where we left off yesterday?
I'm lonely like a castaway
Heartbreak that I can't escape, a sinking ship I'll never save
I'm lonely like a castaway.”
It's the perfect song to dance to after a breakup or a fight. It's not ideal to dance but it'll just make you feel better. All those emotions will get straight out. It's my #2 on this album!
11. The Girl Who Cried Wolf:
“Look at me in the eye, is anyone there at all?”
It's a slow paced song with so much depth. It's the 'Amnesia' of 'Sounds Good Feels Good', if you know what I mean.
12. Broken Home:
“Who’s right, who’s wrong
Who really cares?
The fall, the blame, the pain’s still there
I'm here alone inside of this broken home, this broken home.”
This is a song about the child from an unhappy marriage. It's incredibly sad. Even if you're not in a broken home, you'll empathize because it's so well written and the music is that good.
13. Fly Away:
“I want a little bit of California
With a little bit of London sky.
I wanna take my heart to the end of the world
And fly away tonight.
I want a little bit of open Ocean
With a New York state of mind
I wanna take my heart to the end of the world
And fly away
Fly away tonight.”
After listening to the previous one, this one's a lot upbeat. Your wanderlust soul will be aroused after listening to this one.
"Who am I? Who am I when I don't know myself?
Who am I? Who am I? Invisible."
I loved this song. It's a delicacy to your lonely soul. I loved that chorus.
“Airplanes cut through the clouds
Like angels can fly, we'll never die.
Sirens cut through the night
Like screams that are fire, rising up high
Like I've something to prove, nothing to lose
In this city, in this city oh.”
Airplanes is connected to Taylor Swift and Harry Styles. And now there's a song by that name by 5SOS. So all my favourites are linked to 'Airplanes'. Ed Sheeran, please get the hint!
The chorus is pretty amazing.
16. San Francisco:
“Remember that weekend when we got out of town?
Drove into infinity, held you 'til you fell asleep
Without you, the smell of your perfume
Reminds me of when we were free, I swear that it's still haunting me.”
I really liked this one as well! And there's wonderful music towards the end.
