I just reread my Simon/Jeremy fic and like…it’s actually pretty good? I can’t believe I wrote something that people actually enjoy fuck 😭
He is my favourite reaction channel right now and I just found out that he did a great SOTT cover.
It sounds like Tyler from TØP is singing this song.
So there are 3 great things in 1 video. Blake McLain sounding like Tyler Joseph singing a Harry Styles song. Beautiful.
Please watch this. This dude is seriously underrated. And his reactions are very long, detailed and informative, because they focus on the music and production.
i will never not be mad that they changed the lyrics in sott
It’s been a long time since I delved into the meanings of SotT, but I’m sure Harry and Louis’ relationship/closeting are part of it. (The lyrics are far from straightforward, so I believe multiple interpretations can be valid.) I like your idea about “far away” in relation to “we gotta get away…” I agree H&L have many common themes in their music - almost like they were a couple, or something! ;)
The song doesn’t have a typical verse-chorus structure, but the falsetto, “We never learn we’ve been here before…” could be considered a chorus. “Always stuck and running from the bullets” gives way to “your bullets” in the third falsetto chorus. Using the word “your” gives the lyric a much more specific, personal bite. I believe “your” is a reference to Simon Cowell. Also, the type of falsetto used gives the impression of young, innocent children being pursued by a mature malevolence. Given the age at which the 1D lads began to be exploited and manipulated by Cowell and the industry - I think the innocence angle works very well.
You stay safe and healthy too anon.

‘Sign of the Times’ | April 7, 2017
Kevan Kenney: 3 years ago today Harry Styles released ‘Sign of the Times’ and gave us the single we had been waiting years for🤘
I still remember the first time I heard sott at 4 am, crying my eyes out and my best friend with me on the phone. What an experience.
Just stop your crying, have the time of your life.
Sign of The Times by Harry Styles • lockscreens
the lyric “why are we always fuckin runnin from, the bullets” is just chef’s kiss my dude
not to be weird or anything but listening to harry styles’s sign of the times makes me feel like i’m in the middle of a slow motion car crash and mid air in the passenger’s seat from the impact
still one of my all time fave performances of this song
