The Thrill of It All: Part 1

I have always loved Sam Smith, from first first album, to the bond song Writings on the wall, and to now, his brand new Album The Thrill of it all. To be honest due to being super busy I never got to listen to it as soon as it came out, however I have heard snippets and loved the sound I was hearing. So, I decided right. Im going to get this album and listen to it finally! One word can describe this album. Beautiful. The sound is so mellow and easy to work to. Its a relaxing, yet powerful sound that Sam always delivers in all his songs. Two songs on this album however are most mesmerizing and resonate closely to me.

HIM is a song I love. Its a beautiful song, that really nails it for getting the view of LGBT love through song, and its friction with faith and religion. It hit me as it came on, I was like, this is such a lovely song. Songs that explicitly mention and talk about the gay scene are usually loud party anthems such as Born this Way and alike (TBH I dont know many haha) However this song, written in gospel like manor in my opinion, is pure bliss. Its powerful words, Im not religious myself but the first few lines about needed to tell a secret are oh so common in the LGBT community. The pressure of concealing a secret when that part of your life should not be condemned as a secret.

I think this song will go down as one of the greats as an anthem on this subject. I also think it will be a sense of relief and comfort for those who identify in the LGBT spectrum but are also in a faith, as I personally know no songs that talk about the subject in such an open manor as this song does.

Holy Father
We need to talk
I have a secret
That I can’t keep
I’m not the boy that
You thought you wanted
Please don’t get angry
Have faith in me

Say I shouldn’t be here but I can’t give up his touch
It is him I love
It is him
Don’t you try and tell me that God doesn’t care for us
It is him I love
It is him I love

I walk the streets of Mississippi
I hold my lover by the hand
I feel you staring when he is with me
How can I make you understand?

Say I shouldn’t be here but I can’t give up his touch
It is him I love
It is him
Don’t you try and tell me that God doesn’t care for us
It is him I love
It is him I love

Oh, I love
No, No
I love
I love
Him I love
Him I love
Him I love
Him I love

Holy Father
Judge my sins
I’m not afraid of what they will bring
I’m not the boy that you thought you wanted
I love him

HIM, Sam Smith
