The song is a resilient breath of fresh air. The way the lyrics are laid out in front of us, paints such an immersive imagery of hope. The song begins with a simple, slow and upbeat strings combo and it remains the same for a while. But the drum kicks in which adds a different texture to the song. “Standing still on a carousel, it’s turning faster and I’m overwhelmed.” It’s reassuring to hear someone give voice to your anxieties and Dropping Ugly has given us that. Anxieties about life are valid, especially in today’s day and age when life can just zoom past us at full speed. affect everyone in a very real way.
Happy Anniversary is one such film that deals with the anxiety of finding love too quickly while being in a happy relationship. The female lead wants more from the relationship but she doesn’t know what that is. The male protagonist is left to guess and convince her of their love. While the film ends quite ambiguously about the status of their love, it is such an endearing watch. Blue one, would fit in so well in the movie and the best part is that it can fit it in both the make and the female protagonist’s pov.
The song has excellent cinematic value because of the picturesque lyrics. Dropping ugly is an artist that doesn’t limit himself to genres and it is evident in his work. He goes around on tours and if you want to watch him perform live or catch some of his fresh music, follow him on his socials.
