Music On the Beat Recommendation Song

This Song Caught My “Attention” [Attention-Charlie Puth]

cover

I was scrolling through my Spotify new release looking for new good music. I listened to some songs from various singers. While scrolling, I saw the title of this song, Attention, the acoustic version. I remembered seeing this title on the singer’s Twitter page, Charlie Puth. He has posted a video of him making this song from scratch. Man, the only thing in my mind was that this man is a musical genius. He made various tunes just by plucking one guitar string!

I decided to listen to the song. First, the acoustic version. The song begins with a guitar-like sound and continues with the addition of bass. What I like about the acoustic version is that it uses guitar but not with the strumming like most of other songs’ acoustic version. The guitar produces not only the melody but also the rhythm. It is kinda light but totally catchy and enjoyable.

I continued with the original version. It begins the same way, with a guitar-like sound. The difference is the rhythm. This version doesn’t use only guitar for rhythm. It has a drum-like sound (I keep saying like because I’m not sure, he might use keyboard for this right? He used keyboard for the bass sound sooooooo…). What I like from the version is the chorus. The chorus is BOMB! It’s a chorus you can dance to, or at least move your head to.

Now, the lyrics. The lyrics, I think, show the moment when the writer takes the lid off of someone. Like he knows what the person’s plans and the motives behind the person’s behavior. He knows pretty much everything and he’s revealing all of them. He even says, “I know that dress is karma, perfume regret”. He knows that the person is up only for attention, not love. I don’t know but personally I think it is a song that makes you feel like “winning” hahahaha like “HA I know everything”

Honestly, I can’t relate to the lyrics, but I believe it is the situation experienced by a lot of people. Charlie Puth expresses the experience very well in the lyrics though. It is as if he’s letting the emotions out, this time not only in the lyrics but also in his voice, especially in the last chorus.

Overall, it is an amazing and catchy song! If you’re in the same situation, you definitely have to add this song to your playlist. If you’re not in the situation, well, you can still dance to the music or at least move your head to the beat πŸ˜‰

You’ve been running round, running round, running round
Throwing that dirt all on my name’Cause you knew that I, knew that I, knew that I’d call you up
You’ve been going round, going round, going round every party in LA
‘Cause you knew that I, knew that I, knew that I’d be at one

I know that dress is karma, perfume regret
You got me thinking ’bout when you were mine
And now I’m all up on you
What you expect?But you’re not coming home with me tonight

You just want attention
You don’t want my heartMaybe you just hate the thought of me with someone new
You just want attention
I knew from the start
You’re just making sure I’m never getting over you

You’ve been running round, running round, running round
Throwing that dirt all on my name
‘Cause you knew that I, knew that I, knew that I’d call you up
Baby now that we’re, now that we’re, now that we’re right here standing face to face
You already know, already know, already know that you won

I know that dress is karma, perfume regret
You got me thinking ’bout when you were mine
And now I’m all up on you
What you expect?
But you’re not coming home with me tonight

You just want attention
You don’t want my heart
Maybe you just hate the thought of me with someone new
You just want attention
I knew from the start
You’re just making sure I’m never getting over you

What are you doin’ to me?
What are you doin’, huh? (What are you doin’?)
What are you doin’ to me?
What are you doin’, huh? (What are you doin’?)
What are you doin’ to me?
What are you doin’, huh? (What are you doin’?)
What are you doin’ to me?
What are you doin’, huh?

I know that dress is karma, perfume regret
You got me thinking ’bout when you were mine
And now I’m all up on you
What you expect?
But you’re not coming home with me tonight

You just want attention
You don’t want my heart
Maybe you just hate the thought of me with someone new
You just want attention
I knew from the start
You’re just making sure I’m never getting over you

What are you doin’ to me? (hey)
What are you doin’, huh? (what are you doin’, what?)
What are you doin’ to me?
What are you doin’, huh?

You just want attention
I knew from the start
You’re just making sure I’m never getting over you
