paramore songs about friendship

The gleefully adolescent lyrics match up, taking us into the high-drama of young love: ‘Nothing compares to a quiet evening alone / Just the one two of us is counting on / That never happens, I guess I’m dreaming again / Let’s be more than this!’ The Shane Drake-directed music video (imagining the band in some Mad Max-esque wasteland) was another brilliantly excessive touch. Nowadays, with Zac back in the fold and able support from multi-instrumentalist Taylor York, Paramore shows feel like a walk down memory lane.

Back-stabbing friends? Honest and nostalgic, somehow so hopeful in it's ironically-optimistic lyrics, this song is always my go-to for lonely evening drives and nights when I can't fall asleep. Their oeuvre is intimidatingly vast and diverse for their ages, but we’ve attempted to rank 15 years of it – or at least, the album tracks – here.

A fun anecdote: the backing vocals on ‘Born for This’ are sung by a fan who submitted the winning entry to a competition for the opportunity. There is no more important or more resonant message than this. The dreamy syncopated rhythm hides the band-favorite theme of past betrayal & messed up friendships under instrumentals that sound like a summer drive along the coast. "Maybe it's been years since I genuinely smiled / Maybe it's been years since I wanted to be a part of anything / Well, lately I've been good, you know I've actually been great / Man, I even laughed a little today...". 16. Is it about the music industry? Originally a bonus track for the Best Buy and iTunes UK release, on ‘Stop This Song’ Williams wrestles with a love she doesn’t want to let into her heart. Sidenote, though – it’s actually part of the reason we have Paramore, as it’s one of two songs written by Williams and Farro in an attempt to dissuade the label from firing them. Simply put, it’s an easygoing masterclass powered by a funky guitar riff (inspired, apparently, by support slots from Stockport art-rockers Dutch Uncles) which eventually squeezes in a full-on gospel choir. The last lines are arguably the best of the song, Hayley's breathy vocals fading out with the beat in a perfectly poetic ending to their most recent album, almost saying, forget all I've just sung about, I don't want to know what you really think.

Marianne Eloise has taken on the impossible task of ranking every song from worst to best.

It adds so much to the narrative of the song, and the quick tempo makes this anthem of frustration so fun to listen to.

Can you feel the pressure?

‘It’s just a spark but it’s enough to keep me going / And when it’s dark out and no one’s around it keeps glowing.’. We have 8 albums and 118 song lyrics in our database. A revenge anthem if I've ever heard one, the singer spends three and a half minutes bragging (even though she claims she "never meant to brag") about her conquests.

It presents a complete picture of different phases of a relationship, and of the ending of a relationship: "I think I'm tired of getting over it / Just starting something new again / I'm getting sick of the beginnings / And always coming to your defenses / I guess it's good to get it off my chest / I guess I can't believe I haven't yet / You know I got my own convictions / And they're stronger than any addiction / But no one's winning...".

With Williams as the powerful lead vocalist, Paramore also offered a much-needed female voice to the male-dominated scene. He picked up lines from Paramore songs and strung them through and made it about our story." I've never liked ukulele, but this song (along with the two other interludes from Self-Titled), has converted me, in all it's washed-out, back-and-forth glory.

Plus, the opening lines, “give me attention, I need it now”, are nothing if not utterly relatable.

‘The truth is hiding in your eyes,’ Hayley sings, ‘and it’s hanging on your tongue / Just boiling in my blood / But you think that I can’t see.’ Although inspired directly by the Edward/Bella narrative, the song manages to tap into the subliminal themes of forbidden lust and manipulation better across four minutes than the film does in two hours. ‘No Friend’ is the only Paramore track to not feature Williams on vocals, which is perhaps why it’s not a great listen. The original version of ‘Hate to See Your Heart Break’ is still powerful, but for the deluxe version, Hayley Williams enlisted real-life friend Joy Williams for her first ever studio collaboration. Ah the legendary MMLP 1, also known as Eminem’s magnum opus.

Hamburg Song - Keane. Proof that Paramore dabbled in electro-pop before ‘After Laughter’, ‘Ain’t It Fun’, the final single from ‘Paramore’, is incredibly ambitious. Necessary cookies are essential for the basic functionality and security features of the website to function properly. "I drowned out all my sense with / The sound of it's beating / And that's what you get when you let your heart win...". Feeling unfairly guilty, Williams opts to either avoid the offending lyrics or playing the song entirely, which is a shame, because it slaps. Borrowing from the bouncy ska of No Doubt, ‘Caught in the Middle’ is an enjoyable track on which Williams reflects on growing up, the meaning of glory days, and the uselessness of nostalgia.

The scant electric instrumentation, organ and choral vocals of the final third pack heavenly power.

Forming as teenagers, Paramore was initially made up of Williams and her childhood friends Josh Farro, Zac Farro and Jeremy Davis. Returning to religion, on ‘Turn It Off’ Williams slows it down again to explore her complicated emotions and myriad of sins, lamenting the ways her pride and spite play against and with each other. "I can feel the pressure / It's getting closer now / We're better off without you...". It’s light on their conventional radio-ready hooks, but immense international exposure attached to the movie somehow made Paramore even more massive than they already were. These cookies are not essential for the website to function, but they are used to provide us with audience insights, with which we can continually optimise and improve the site, as well as to serve you relevant personalised ad content. So many shoutouts to earlier songs, with ever-strong guitar pulsing to a heart-beat-sounding beat. A lot of the lyrics deal explicitly with the apparent betrayal felt by that loss, and ‘Conspiracy’ seems to be no exception, as Williams explores the personal shock of losing someone close. I can't call you a stranger / But I can't call you / I know you think that I erased you / You may hate me but I can't hate you / And I won't replace you...". Opening with chatter and vaguely grainy vocals, ‘Future’ has the roughness of a demo, which makes it feel honest but is kind of a weak close to an otherwise incredibly powerful album. But when Hayley's amazing vocals begin, it gets even more mysterious.

A fun, chaotic track with fast-paced pop-punk guitars and genuine laughter at the end, it sounds like after all the stress, Paramore are finally having some fun again. "This is how we'll dance when / When they try to take us down / This is what will be our glory...".

The 'List: Best (Depending On Who You Ask) of 2017.

Even after she's taken her rose-colored glasses off, admitting she's a "nervous" & "half-empty girl," Hayley's desires are straightforward in her lyrics: "Just let me cry a little bit longer / I ain't gon' smile if I don't want to / Hey, man, we all can't be like you / I wish we were all rose-colored too / My rose-colored boy...". / Are you recounting all my faults?

That keyboard-tinkling, beach wave sound is deceptive: again, the lyrics deal directly with depression and climbing out of the other side. soundtrack. With a playful, 60s pop song-style opening that could just as easily belong on ‘After Laughter’ as ‘Grease’, ‘(One of Those) Crazy Girls’ is a satirical take on jealous, obsessive lyrics. After reconciling for ‘After Laughter’, the band still had a whole lotta complicated feelings to work through. I dont recall them having any songs about best friends. Hello, one and all.

Put your rock and metal knowledge to the ultimate test! Its poppy exploration of our modern, image-obsessed culture walks a line between breezy authenticity (‘Oh please don’t ask me how I’ve been / Don’t make me play pretend!’) and such upbeat songcraft that it feels the listeners themselves might be being misled. ‘Pain make your way to me, to me / And I’ll always be just so inviting / If I ever start to think straight / This heart will start a riot in me…’ It mightn’t quite be a title track, but that telling namedrop for their breakthrough LP assured us that That’s What You Get was a distillation of everything that made Paramore great in 2007. Despite its moving vocals, ‘My Heart’ is a repetitive song that’s only set apart from other tracks on ‘All We Know Is Falling’ by Williams’ powerful repetition of “this heart, it beats, beats for only you” backed by some hardcore screamo by Josh Farro. In ways evocative of heavier, post hardcore-inspired emo, ‘Let the Flames Begin’ is another strong, vaguely threatening-sounding exploration of Williams’ faith. Even if you're down to your "last hope," "it keeps glowing..." and you're never alone. "They taped over your mouth / Scribbled out the truth with their lies / Your little spies...". Even though Ain't It Fun has a very different sound than most of Paramore's catalog, I was so excited when this song became a radio hit and started being played everywhere. The prodigious songwriting of this All We Know Is Falling cut, however, proves that her ear for arena-ready hooks and willingness to grapple with deep feelings were there from the start. I love paramore!!!!! It’s open in a way that evokes the best female solo artists of the 90s. Depressive honesty takes a catchy turn in this song, which makes it a true masterpiece in my opinion (much moreso than Fake Happy, sorry not sorry). I will always readily admit that my default position is a frequenter of the Top 40 list, but I remember being so exhilarated when my dad would play Kings of Leon or when I heard Jimmy Eat World at school. It’s got the uplifting, forward-looking energy of a Christian song with none of the cheese.

This angsty song takes a turn in the bridge, though, after the singer begs to be "more than this": "Rock and roll honey, don't you know baby / We're all alone now, give me something to sing about.". Telling the tale of a spurned high school bad girl who steals back her wayward lover just for the hell of it (‘Whoa, it was never my intention to brag / To steal it all away from you now / But God, does it feel so good / ‘Cause I got him where I want him now’) before callously labelling her love-rival a ‘whore’, it has understandably been dropped from setlists.
