• What Songs Taught Us #9 – Sick Boy •
Song In Focus : Sick Boy
Artist : The Chainsmokers
According to the artists, “Sick Boy” is a reflection of their generation and the struggles with finding identity on social media.
Drew said: “This song is kind about discovering your self-identity while living in a world where everyone posts everything they do and projects kind of a curated reality on Instagram. And that’s how we interact with one another.”
A lot of people front themselves on social media, and are living two identities, the real one and the virtual one. To garner followers and likes, they’ll portray any image they want to and post whatever gets them that engagement.
The wise thing is to beware of the fake ones and not be influenced by what they say. There are some authentic ones too, so it’s not all bad!
However, be self-aware and do what you’d like to, or want to, and not be influenced by someone else and form your own identity, at the end.
Don’t doubt yourself, and don’t anticipate people’s opinions on the actions you haven’t taken yet.
