Song of the Day #3,436: ‘Hurts Good’ – R5

R5 is a Los Angeles-based pop band made up of four siblings (Ross, Rocky, Riker and Rydel Lynch) and family friend Ellington Ratliff.

Ross Lynch is best known (in my household, anyway) as Austin from the Disney Channel sitcom Austin & Ally, a show about a pop star and the young woman who writes his songs. He is currently winning rave reviews for his performance as serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer in the indie film My Friend Dahmer.

I asked Sophia if she was ok with me broadcasting to my blog audience the fact that she loves a song by what her sister calls a “kid band.” Sophia replied, “Sure… it’s a banger.”

I admire that level of comfort with her musical taste. No such thing as a guilty pleasure in her book. She likes what she likes, without apology. That’s a lesson it took me 40 years to embrace.

And she’s right. This song is a banger.

[Verse 1]
It’s hard to speak
Mumbling my poetry
But talk is cheap
Your body’s saying other things
No need to fear
‘Cos the crew is here
If tonight you’re free
Oh come and get a groove with me

[Pre-Chorus]
Flowing like no other
Can I get another?
Must be nice to look like that (yeah)
Who gave you my number?
They deserve a pay bump
Who taught you to move like that?

[Chorus]
Say that you want me just to want somebody
Tell me you need me ‘cos I need somebody
None of these lines will ever make you love me
Hurts good to want ya
Crave the pain I get from you

[Verse 2]
A killer queen
Never really as she seems
A superfreak (a superfreak)
She’s stalling with her magazines
But I’m right here
And I volunteer
If tonight you’re free
Oh come and get a groove with me (ooh)

[Pre-Chorus]
Hey, I know you’re trouble
Pouring me a double
Damn, it’s nice to feel like that
You’re my biggest wonder
I think I could love ya
Must be nice to live like that

[Chorus]
Say that you want me just to want somebody
Tell me you need me ‘cos I need somebody
None of these lines will ever make you love me
Hurts good to want ya
Crave the pain I get from you

[Bridge]
Ooh, baby
My head aches, my heart aches, I’m awake, I’m alive
My head aches, my heart aches, I’m awake, I’m alive

[Chorus]
Say that you want me just to want somebody
Tell me you need me ‘cos I need somebody
None of these lines will ever make you love me
Hurts good to want ya
Crave the pain I get from you

    Might be a kid’s band, but not such a kid’s video.😄
