Song of the Day #2,800: ‘Pillowtalk’ – Zayn

zayn_pillowtalkAfter a surprisingly strong top five Billboard lineup last week, we turn our attention to the bottom half of the top ten. Will the quality level remain high or are we due for a slip back into depressing mediocrity?

Zayn, formerly of One Direction, kicks us off with his first solo single, ‘Pillowtalk.’ This is a decidedly more grown-up track from young Zayn. Pre-teen girls all over the world are getting quite an earful.

Another winner, I’m happy to report. This song is quite good, dirty words and all. Of course I shouldn’t be surprised because I’ve enjoyed pretty much every One Direction song I’ve heard, too.

[Verse 1]
Climb on board
We’ll go slow and high tempo
Light and dark
Hold me hard and mellow

[Pre-Chorus]
I’m seeing the pain, seeing the pleasure
Nobody but you, ‘body but me
‘Body but us, bodies together
I love to hold you close, tonight and always
I love to wake up next to you
I love to hold you close, tonight and always
I love to wake up next to you

[Chorus]
So we’ll piss off the neighbours
In the place that feels the tears
The place to lose your fears
Yeah, reckless behavior
A place that is so pure, so dirty and raw
In the bed all day, bed all day, bed all day
Fucking and fighting on
It’s our paradise and it’s our war zone
It’s our paradise and it’s our war zone

[Verse 2]
Pillow talk
My enemy, my ally
Prisoners
Then we’re free, it’s a thin line

[Pre-Chorus]
I’m seeing the pain, seeing the pleasure
Nobody but you, ‘body but me
‘Body but us, bodies together
I love to hold you close, tonight and always
I love to wake up next to you

[Chorus]
So we’ll piss off the neighbours
In the place that feels the tears
The place to lose your fears
Yeah, reckless behavior
A place that is so pure, so dirty and raw
In the bed all day, bed all day, bed all day
Fucking and fighting on
It’s our paradise and it’s our war zone
It’s our paradise and it’s our war zone

[Bridge]
Paradise, paradise, paradise, paradise
War zone, war zone, war zone, war zone
Paradise, paradise, paradise, paradise
War zone, war zone, war zone, war zone

[Chorus]
So we’ll piss off the neighbours
In the place that feels the tears
The place to lose your fears
Yeah, reckless behavior
A place that is so pure, so dirty and raw
In the bed all day, bed all day, bed all day
Fucking and fighting on
It’s our paradise and it’s our war zone
It’s our paradise and it’s our war zone

    Until now, I had only heard a clean version of this on the radio. I had no idea it was quite so graphic.

    I think I prefer the more harmonized PG stuff by One Direction, but it’s a pretty good song.
