Single review: “Gimme the love” by Jake Bugg

Singer/Songwriter: Jake Bugg

Song: “Gimme the love”

Album: ‘On My One’ (to be released in June 2016)

Country: England

Jake Bugg comes back hard with his new music, “Gimme the love” is the living breathing proof of that. The song is so raw, so real, so in your face and just perfect. I am a fan of his more laid back songs but this song is something else, a whole new beast waiting to be tamed and I am up for the challenge, are you?

The tunes are on point and the lyrics are so well written by Jake Bugg. There is something about the lyrics that just catches you and doesn’t let you go … I find myself repeating it over and over on Spotify while driving and then at home …I do that as well. The song is real and tangible, it’s not a fairy tale or something that only happens in movies or in dreams, he writes about truths that we want to cover or truths that we feel don’t match with our lives (but they do, in one way or another they do). And what I love about it’s not just the raw and rebellious spirit that it has but the fast paced singing and the beats used which just add to the punch in the face feeling that you get when it starts to play. “Gimme the love” is a fantastic sign of what’s to come from this talented young English musician.

Lyrics (Gimme the Love)

Stick lights and rhymes about the old days
Keeping rich just to make new waves
I thought about it in a few ways
Pull back, toke on the pale blaze
Middle role, the world ’bout the game play
Soft coke is hard on the airplay
Trying make a [?] like the new phase
It’s only gonna be the same

back and trying to give it upbeat
Those kids talk about the old [?] Brick wall hit by the concrete
Tall Ben back at his glory
[?] telling that he hit my pony
took my time to think ’bout the old me
It’s only gonna be the same

Just gimme the love
Just gimme the love
Just gimme the love
Just gimme the love
Just gimme the love
Just gimme the love
Just gimme the love
Just gimme the love
Just gimme the love
It’s only gonna be the same

Shakes hard, turning out to get paid
Bad times sees the people real fake
Pushing on her heart was all that he [?] me
Coming up fast, cut [?] the next take
Better put your sticker on cause your gonna break
Late nights make you walk sideways
And now we’re gonna party my way

It’s only gonna be the same
Just gimme the love
Just gimme the love
Just gimme the love
Just gimme the love
Just gimme the love
Just gimme the love
Just gimme the love
Just gimme the love
It’s only gonna be the same

Just gimme the love
Just gimme the love
Just gimme the love
Just gimme the love
Just gimme the love
Just gimme the love
Just gimme the love
Just gimme the love
It’s only gonna be the same

Just gimme the love
Just gimme the love
Just gimme the love
Just gimme the love
Just gimme the love
Just gimme the love
Just gimme the love
Just gimme the love
Is it ever gonna be the same?
