Song of the Day #2,503: ‘See You Again’ – Wiz Khalifa feat. Charlie Puth

walker_diesel_furiousIt’s been a couple of months since I took a look at Billboard’s Hot 100. I’ll spend the next two weeks catching up, and finding out how many new songs have cracked the charts during that time.

In the #1 spot is Wiz Khalifa with ‘See You Again,’ a song he recorded for the Furious 7 soundtrack. The song is ok, but its connection to Paul Walker’s death gives it added emotional depth.

Furious 7 was a kick-ass action movie (I refer to the series as the meathead Mission Impossible) but its loving send-off of Paul Walker’s character made it something more — a truly heartfelt tribute to a man this cast and crew had grown to love over more than a decade.

The film’s final shot, depicted in the video for this song, was a graceful and touching way to say goodbye.

[Chorus: Charlie Puth]
It’s been a long day without you, my friend
And I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again
We’ve come a long way from where we began
Oh, I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again
When I see you again[Verse 1: Wiz Khalifa]
Damn, who knew
All the planes we flew
Good things we been through
That I’d be standing right here talking to you
‘Bout another path
I know we loved to hit the road and laugh
But something told me that it wouldn’t last
Had to switch up
Look at things different, see the bigger picture
Those were the days
Hard work forever pays
Now I see you in a better place, uh

[Hook: Wiz Khalifa]
How could we not talk about family, when family’s all that we got?
Everything I went through, you were standing there by my side
And now you gon’ be with me for the last ride

[Chorus: Charlie Puth]

[Verse 2: Wiz Khalifa]
First, you both go out your way
And the vibe is feeling strong
And what’s small turned to a friendship
A friendship turned to a bond
And that bond will never be broken
The love will never get lost
And when brotherhood come first
Then the line will never be crossed
Established it on our own
When that line had to be drawn
And that line is what we reached
So remember me when I’m gone

[Hook: Wiz Khalifa]

[Bridge: Charlie Puth]
So let the light guide your way, yeah
Hold every memory as you go
And every road you take
Will always lead you home, home

[Chorus: Charlie Puth]

    I’ve heard a version of this without the rap that I like better, but it’s a nice tribute either way.
