Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this upbeat single is a remixed club track that is also a radio hit, and the lyrics and content are totally clean. The message is a positive one of loving others. The video shows some kissing, but nothing vulgar -- just seemingly small-town people living day-to-day life.
What's the story?
"FEELS SO CLOSE" is the second single on the third upcoming album from Scottish singer, songwriter, and producer Calvin Harris. Americans might know his name as the producer of Rihanna's club hit "We Found Love." The video for the single is a depiction of Anytown, USA, with endearing moments of young love, dreams, and relationships. The song has been remixed several times by masters like Nero and Manila Killa & El Cid.
Is it any good?
When you first see the video for "Feels So Close," you might expect a country-pop song, given the small-town images of cheerleaders tumbling on lawns and an old cowboy practicing with his lasso. Then the surprise hits, with a club-ready techno mix that makes you want to move your feet. The simplistic lyrics "I feel so close to you right now, it's a force field" complement the pulsing beat, and somehow it all suddenly feels right, even with a dancing ballerina on a dirt road and a gray-haired cowboy relaxing in his lawn chair.
