Harry Styles – Watermelon Sugar Live At iHeartRadio Jingle Ball 2020 (Best Quality) Quality Components

Our Cool Media, LLC team of YouTube researchers thought until today they had combed all of the live versions of Watermelon Sugar High by H.S. available on the platform until this version floated logrimithically up. Here we find ourselves slightly addicted to Watermelon Sugar High, not the substance nor metaphor (see oral sex and SEX in general) rather the pop song. Harry Styles can sing as proven by these softly produced, no signs of auto tuners, versions. Most leads in boy bands that go solo have some chops (see Justin Timberlake and the one married to a beautiful Indian cuisine writer/actor) Harry has proven he also can act with character believability (see verisimilitude) see feature film Dunkirk.

The problem when you conduct a deep dive on a particular song/artist is that you linger long enough searching on YouTube that you end up in the cover category.  Generally, this is listening once and leave it alone section, except when. you come across such an original artist as Anne-Marie.   Damn, she is too young to interpret the essence of a song so well and then convey it with as much or even more force than the original artist.  Perhaps this song is so insipidly good that it needed the female touch. Anne Marie is an artist.  Harry Styles understands this and backs it up with his band personnel choices.  The song is obviously about pleasuring or giving pleasure in summer to women, right? Not to swallow too many watermelon seeds in the telling but the sexcual references are overtly obvious-Watermelon Sugar High.

Anne-Marie – To Be Young [Performance Video]

Lyrics:
They tell me I should make a plan for life
All I’m thinking bout, is what to do tonight
Hundred miles an hour no headlights
On an open road, oh
We do what we can to dull the pain
Pinky promise things will stay the same
Even when I’m old I’ll know your name
Anywhere we go, oh
Dye my hair a million colours
Dream I’ll make a billion dollars
I swear that day can’t come soon enough
In the meantime, we just

Fall in love, broken heart
Break the rules, drink too much
We’re all a mess, but I guess
This is what it feels like to be young
Take a punch, get back up
Act a fool, give a fuck
We’re are all a mess, but I guess
This is what it feels like to be young

Small town and we’re drinking all the liquor
Every night trying to feel something bigger
Hotboxing the car in the winter
We don’t wanna go home
And I’ll dye my hair a million colours
Dream I’ll make a billion dollars
I swear that day can’t come soon enough
In the meantime, we just

Fall in love, broken heart
Break the rules, drink too much
We’re all a mess, but I guess
This is what it feels like to be young
Take a punch, get back up
Act a fool, give a fuck
We’re all a mess, but I guess
This is what it feels like to be young

This can’t be real life, don’t even feel high
Maybe if you’ll take one with me then it’ll feel right
Don’t want to know what standing still would even feel like
Wanted to fit in when I didn’t, now I know
And I just want freedom, can’t be lonely
Heartless, hopeful, stupid, phoney
Say they love me, but won’t show me
Guess this is how it feels like to be young

Fall in love, broken heart
Break the rules, drink too much
We’re all a mess, but I guess
This is what it feels like to be young
Take a punch, get back up
Act a fool, give a fuck
We’re all a mess, but I guess
This is what it feels like to be young
Ya oh oh ho, ya oh oh ho
This is what it feels like to be young, be young
This is what it feels like to be young

Anne-Marie – Extended Set (Live at Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball 2019)

Anne-Marie signaled the start of the final night of the 2019 Jingle Bell Ball, opening the show at London’s O2 with a smash-hit-filled performance of her biggest hits, including ‘FRIENDS’, ‘2002’ and ‘Ciao Adios.’

The reason this guilty pleasure is so damn great is not the, pop easy summer hit refrain, but rather the Harry Styles comfortable swagger and incredible vocal. You must concede the kid is talented and he is truly Keanu Reeves cool to his fans and strangers alike.  Clearly this young man has Jagger swagger good looks but he is also a very decent man raised to treat all with respect.  Comparisons could be made to the stage presence of Robert Palmer mixed with the hip movements of Sir Michael Jagger.  BTW:  It should have been Harry Styles playing Jagger in the new made for Amazon series about the lifelong relationship between Princess Margaret and Mick Jagger. The actor playing him is missing the feral rock star Pan boy aura of the original UK singer.
