Song of the Day #2,661: ‘Same Old Love’ – Selena Gomez

selena_gomez_same_old_loveToday’s track wraps up my latest two-week dive into the Billboard’s Hot 100. I’ve been more encouraged by this batch of songs that I usually am after these theme weeks.

Sure, Fetty Wap is still inexplicably lingering in the top ten, and the two Drake songs are forgettable, but just about every other song I’ve featured is solid. We’ve had another hit from Taylor Swift’s unstoppable 1989, a listenable Justin Bieber track, touching songs by R. City and Ed Sheeran, a fun discovery in Elle King and an unexpected blast from Macklemore.

Closing things out is Selena Gomez’s second appearance in the top 20. Her sexy ‘Good For You’ sits at #10 and the second single from her well-received album Revival is currently at #18.

While ‘Good For You’ was about pleasing her lover, ‘Same Old Love’ is about kicking him to the curb. Charli XCX co-wrote the track (with several others, not including Gomez) and sings on the chorus.

I prefer ‘Good For You’ but this isn’t a bad follow-up. The album’s reviews have me tempted to buy it, though it’s not the sort of thing I usually like. That said, I’ve enjoyed the hell out of Gomez’s 2011 album When the Sun Goes Down so maybe I’m a minor fan.

[Verse 1: Selena Gomez]
Take away your things and go
You can’t take back what you said, I know
I’ve heard it all before, at least a million times
I’m not one to forget, you know

[Pre-Chorus 1: Selena Gomez]
I don’t believe, I don’t believe it
You left in peace, left me in pieces
Too hard to breathe, I’m on my knees
Right now, ‘ow

[Chorus: Selena Gomez with Charli XCX]
I’m so sick of that same old love, that shit, it tears me up
I’m so sick of that same old love, my body’s had enough
Oh-oh-oh (that same old love)
Oh-oh-oh (that same old love)
I’m so sick of that same old love, feels like I’ve blown apart
I’m so sick of that same old love, the kind that breaks your heart
Oh-oh-oh (that same old love)
Oh-oh-oh (that same old love)

[Verse 2: Selena Gomez]
I’m not spending any time, wasting tonight on you
I know, I’ve heard it all
So don’t you try and change your mind
Cause I won’t be changing too, you know

[Pre-Chorus 2: Selena Gomez]
You can’t believe, still can’t believe it
You left in peace, left me in pieces
Too hard to breathe, I’m on my knees
Right now, ‘ow

[Chorus: Selena Gomez with Charli XCX]
I’m so sick of that same old love, that shit, it tears me up
I’m so sick of that same old love, my body’s had enough
Oh-oh-oh (that same old love)
Oh-oh-oh (that same old love)
I’m so sick of that same old love, feels like I’ve blown apart
I’m so sick of that same old love, the kind that breaks your heart
Oh-oh-oh (that same old love)
Oh-oh-oh (that same old love)

[Bridge]
I’m so sick of that, so sick of that love
I’m so sick of that, so sick of that love
I’m so sick of that, so sick of that love
I’m so sick of that, so sick of that love

[Chorus: Selena Gomez with Charli XCX]
I’m so sick of that same old love, that shit, it tears me up
I’m so sick of that same old love, my body’s had enough
Oh-oh-oh (that same old love)
Oh-oh-oh (that same old love)
I’m so sick of that same old love, feels like I’ve blown apart
I’m so sick of that same old love, the kind that breaks your heart
Oh-oh-oh (that same old love)
Oh-oh-oh (that same old love)
