Harry Styles: 2AM Thoughts
Hi everyone!! I know it’s early (approximately 3am here), but I’m wide awake with excitement. For the last couple of hours, I’ve been up waiting to listen to Harry Styles‘ brand new (and first) single. I know some of you aren’t going to be a fan of him, and that is totally okay. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. However, if you’d like to read some reaction thoughts I jotted down throughout the hour before the release and during then read on!
They’re pretty entertaining if I say so myself because I’m so sleep deprived and high on excitement. Also be sure to read my thoughts on Harry Styles and his beautiful soul that start at 2:08am.
ONLY ONE HOUR TO GO UNTIL I GET TO HEAR MY BABY’S SINGLE.
38 MINUTES. I CANNOT.
THEY’RE PLAYING HIS VOICE TO PREP US… AND NOW THEY’RE PLAYING BEST SONG EVER. ACTUALLY CRYING NOW
We have minutes…. this is fine. I’m thriving. Note to self: You have roommates. Do not scream when he comes on. I repeat. Please do not scream. Keep it in girl. You can do it. I believe in you.
THIS COUNTDOWN TIMER THING IS SO STRESSFUL. WHY WOULD THEY DO THIS TO US?? I’m going to have grey hairs when I wake up tomorrow…
I’m crying. His voice is so beautiful. He’s been gone for so many months and now he’s back and I cannot handle this. It’s beautiful. This is so different and I am so in love. I’m so proud. I AM SO FUCKING PROUD OF THIS MAN.
I physically cannot express the love and admiration I have in my heart and soul for this man. He has worked so hard for this and he’s so humble and kind and he just deserves the world. I know some people are going to think “Oh…. he’s an attractive guy and was in a boy band.. you just love him for that.” No. Sit yourself down and listen. Yes, I will admit that I was a fairly big fan of One Direction. HOWEVER, I do not love him because of that fact. I love him so so so so much. He’s amazingly talented. He has worked outrageously hard to get to the point where he is. He is incredibly brave to be doing this again on his own when he’s always had his friends with him. He’s very humble as well. He seems like he’s a very down to earth person, and I really appreciate that. (Sidenote: He has amazing taste in music.) He’s not afraid to be 1000% himself. If I just “loved” him because he was attractive then I would not be up at nearly 3am in the morning listening to his interview and the songs he chooses to play. This song was a pretty big risk. It’s completely unlike anything he’s done before. First of all, it’s over five minutes long. That automatically is going to turn some people away. If I wasn’t a fan of Harry Styles then I would’ve gone to bed over two hours ago and just listened to the song in the morning. I wouldn’t care if I only paid attention to him because he’s attractive. I wouldn’t have paid hundreds of dollars to see 1D in concert and buy all their albums if I just liked to look at their faces. He’s going to get a lot of hate and people saying this song is only popular because of his name. I won’t argue against that. I completely agree that the thousands of people listening to Radio One right now are doing so because they’re fans of 1D, and there’s nothing wrong with that. I wholeheartedly believe that Harry will develop his own unique fan base full of people who absolutely love THIS type of music. For example, my dad would never in a million years listen to and enjoy 1D, but in about an hour and a half when he wakes up for work I’m going to call him and tell him to listen to Sign of the Times because I honestly think he’ll enjoy it. It may take some time, but I think he will eventually separate himself from the 1D “boy band” stereotype. I cannot wait for that to happen so the whole world can see how spectacularly talented he is.
Yes Harry. This is definitely the most anticipated song of the year. This is YOUR year sweetheart.
I think I’ve said most of what I have to say about this glorious man. By the way, if you haven’t listened to “Sign of the Times” yet, then definitely go take a listen. I’ll help you out because I want everyone to hear it so here’s the Spotify link: https://open.spotify.com/album/6YDkzHVTEzMXZOVd1r5NqR
If I keep talking then I’ll just continue to say lovely things about Harry that I’ve definitely already said so I’m going to wrap this up. Have a wonderful Harry day!
