Song of the Day: Ain’t It Fun
Today’s song is Ain’t It Fun by Paramore.
I’m a fan of Hayley Williams. Her vocals always add a lot, and Paramore has a sizable number of hits.
This serves as a nice track from one of their later albums, and I quite like how everything works together.
Ain’t it good to be on your own?
Ain’t it fun you can’t count on no one?
Right off the start the blend strikes (and I really enjoy how it all melds together). It gives a ‘childish’ charm too, which is fun when juxtaposed to the edge.
The tone hits well, noting the struggles of growing older (and the lack of confidence that can arise from it all).
Paramore is one of those bands that had a solid pulse on how contemporary music was shifting (while still doing their own thing).
Ultimately, this was outshined by Still Into You, but I can understand why. Regardless, this track is great.
