“Happiness is like… there’s literally loads of us in the room on that track. Locked eyes… doesn’t really have much structure. It came through like jamming. And we haven’t done that in like years. So we just wanted this record to be really like a captured moment and not be too constructed and even produced that much…. We did it in like a day or so. And it’s us having fun. And I think that there’s this real desire in art to see something remarkable with as little technology as possible.”It serves as an introduction to the consistent theme of Being Funny in a Foreign Language, one that expresses opinions about love, happiness and appreciation.This has good foundation toward being a great song bio but it has some room for improvement. Namely it contains metadata restatement and probably could use some bulking up of the parts that actually discuss the song. I also do not think it needs to discuss the music video. At the moment, that is not adding much. A great resource for song bio best practices can also be found here.
In the chorus, Healy is asking his partner to show him their love, he’s asking for them to see this relationship in the same light that he does. He wants them to see how much it means to him.In “Happiness,” frontman Matt Healy sings about the joys he feels in a relationship and the lengths he’d go to for the other person. The lyrics and beat of the song perfectly encapsulate the feeling of being excited about a person and your relationship/future with them. Now without further do, let’s get into the lyrics! Whenever you ask a married or engaged couple how they knew the person they are with was “the one,” they always say they just had this feeling that they got, something they’ve never felt before with anyone else. Healy also uses this line in the first verse, saying. Madison is graduate of Temple University with a BFA in Film and Media Arts with a Concentration in Screenwriting and a Content Writing Intern at Magnetic Magazinecan have a double meaning. In one sense, it can refer to Healy acting like he knows who he is now since this person has come into his life. On the other hand, it could be him almost joking with himself, saying how now he’s acting like he knows what love is and what it’s about.
In the song’s first verse, Healy tells us how much this person has changed his life, and he talks about all the things he’d do just to have them stay in it, the sacrifices he’d make. He uses the lines.
The band released “Part Of The Band” earlier in July and received many mixed reviews, but fans and critics highly anticipated the fifth album from the group.On August 3rd, The 1975 released their second single, “Happiness,” from their upcoming album Being Funny in a Foreign Language, which comes out October 14th, 2022. So, after vibing the hell out to this song for hours, I decided to actually sit down and really digest the lyrics while I listened to it. Now, I’m pretty sure all, if not almost all of us, are aware that nothing this band ever makes is meant to be taken at face value, but something about Happiness’ lyrics is hitting me hella hard. And I think it’s also important to note the couple fighting in the music video. Maybe this is just me relating to the song because of my own personal experiences, but it when you see the couple fighting and going to both the right and left out of the shot almost seems like it can be taken from the perspective of someone who is still madly in love with an ex-partner and is convincing themselves that the ex-partner was perfect and right for them while simultaneously knowing that the opposite is true and being ultimately faced with a frustrating amount of cognitive dissonance.A cool tidbit about this part is if you really sit and listen, the “show me your love” lyric is sung louder and more proudly than the “why don’t you grow up and see?” In fact, matty almost mutters the second portion, like the person really wants this partner to hear their frustration but doesn’t want to actually confront their behavior.
