Song of the Day #4,155: ‘Circles’ – Post Malone

Post Malone owns the #2 spot on this week’s Billboard Hot 100 with ‘Circles,’ the fourth single from his album Hollywood’s Bleeding.

Malone has been on quite a run. This is his ninth Top Ten single in the past three years, and his seventh in the Top Five. If ‘Circles’ hits #1, it will be his fourth to achieve that feat. Not bad for a guy who was basically unknown before 2016.

I’ve generally liked what I’ve heard from Post Malone, and this song is no exception. It’s nothing special, but it has a pleasant, mellow vibe I support.

Based on the top two songs on the charts this week, things seem to be trending away from the rap domination I’ve encountered in other installments of ‘What the Kids Are Listening To.’ Or maybe it’s just a fluke.

[Verse 1]
We couldn’t turn around ’til we were upside down
I’ll be the bad guy now, but know I ain’t too proud
I  couldn’t be there even when I tried
You don’t believe it, we do this every time

[Chorus]
Seasons change and our love went cold
Feed the flame ’cause we can’t let go
Run away, but we’re running in circles
Run away, run away
I dare you to do something
I’m  waiting on you again, so I don’t take the blame
Run away, but we’re running in circles
Run away, run away, run away

[Verse 2]
Let go, I got a feeling that it’s time to let go
I said so, I knew that this was doomed from the get-go
You thought that it was special, special
But it was just the sex though, the sex though
And I still hear the echoes (The echoes)
I got a feeling that it’s time to let it go, let it go

[Chorus]
Seasons change and our love went cold
Feed the flame ’cause we can’t let go
Run away, but we’re running in circles
Run away, run away
I dare you to do something
I’m waiting on you again, so I don’t take the blame
Run away, but we’re running in circles
Run away, run away, run away

[Bridge]
Maybe you don’t understand what I’m going through
It’s only me, what you got to lose?
Make up your mind, tell me, what are you gonna do?
It’s only me, let it go

[Chorus]
Seasons change and our love went cold
Feed the flame ’cause we can’t let go
Run away, but we’re running in circles
Run away, run away
I dare you to do something
I’m waiting on you again, so I don’t take the blame
Run away, but we’re running in circles
Run away, run away, run away

    I’m not a big fan of his auto tuned sound, but this song is okay.
