“SOS” by James Arthur

Lyrics: https://genius.com/James-arthur-sos-lyrics

-This track packs a punch with a melting pot of sonic elements like pop, rock, and rap!

Interpreted Song Meaning: This track can be broken down into two parts. The first being, someone in dire need for help in life. The problem(s) you have in life has gotten so serious that you’re literally hanging by a thread. It can be a health situation going on in your life (physical or mental or both), a financial crunch (loans, rent, mortgage, bills in general), or even a combination of both health and financial woes.

-The second part to the song is you thanks to the one person in your life who actually noticed you, showed empathy towards you, and helped you get through your personal struggles. You are forever in debt to them for saving your life.

-James Arthur’s voice is filled with a lot of energy and emotion. He really captured the look and feel of a person in deep sorrow and pain. I thought the added rain, flares, and group of background actors really accentuated the moment. By 2:40, I got literal goosebumps hearing that part of the song.

What The Artist Said:

-I hope this song finds you way to your playlists this week. Just know, that we all have a lot in common as human beings. Take a moment and reach out to someone you know and love, do a wellness check with an old friend, help out a fellow stranger if you see someone in need of medical attention. Kindness is contagious and the world will be a better place to live in if we all exercise that idea.
