"Live Forever"

For the majority of Kane Brown’s latest album ‘Experiment’ he’s employed a vast array of captivating musical techniques, intriguing storylines & much more fulfilling vocal performances than nearly everything off his first record, but every once in a while, he stumbles in a way that makes you question if he’s actually as good as other songs would have you believe. One tune in particular which fails to live up to expectations is “Live Forever,” a track so poorly-written that you’ll start to think he’s been working with ghost-writers this entire time, nothing more than a vessel for a collection of songs with no creative input of his own to speak of. Everything about this track feels incredibly amateur, as if written by one of those 13-year old YouTubers who just learned piano & decided to write a rudimentary song about love, repeating the same boring melody that they thought was impressive over & over again in an emotionless progression until enough of their classmates watch the video that it somehow gets ranked on the Top 100 charts – To elaborate, the basis of this tune revolves around an arpeggiated piano line which slowly drones onward in an on-the-one pattern accompanied by a rudimentary kick drum beat from the drums, a melody so underwhelming that it puts the listener to sleep within the first few bars. Like clockwork, this is joined by a ‘heartwarming’ string line that tries to create a loving atmosphere for the song & a banjo plucking out the same melody as the piano, ticking & tocking back & forth with the most lifeless energy, made the slightest bit palatable by the much warmer instrumentation of the chorus that drops into a moving – albeit generic – chord progression, blooming with symphonic swells & finishing off with an incredibly somber Blues guitar solo, possibly the only appealing melody of the entire song - From every conceivable angle, this composition gives the listener nothing but stereotypical Pop ballad nonsense from the early-noughties, produced in a way that feels like a home recording from someone who paid their uncle to make them a song as their introduction to the music world, lacking depth & substance from beginning to end.
At this point, it’s fairly obvious that there’s nothing Brown can do to save this song, but he nevertheless tries, delivering what is hands down the worst vocal performance he has ever produced, both in lyric & in melody – The narrative of “Live Forever” tells a story we’ve all heard before: Boy meets girl, boy falls in love, boy declares he will be by her side ‘til the day they both die, claiming he wants to live forever to be consumed by her radiance for all eternity; Sound familiar? Brown gives a couple cute lines like “now I never wanna see you one last time” & “I never wanna know a kiss goodbye,” showing that he’s confident the girl he’s found is the last person he’ll ever love, but other than that it’s business as usual, every line being some sort of variation of his desire to do nothing but wake up next to her, happy just to be associated with her even if it means never accomplishing anything else for the rest of his days – This storyline is so predictable & basic that it barely registers as interesting, Brown’s accompanying melodies doing absolutely nothing to put a new spin on it, merely singing the same chord progression as the piano underneath & packing each line with the most unenthusiastic energy, failing to give the impression that he’s actually impressed by his partner or even in love with her at all. For a song that’s only one track away from the finale of ‘Experiment,’ “Live Forever” leaves you wanting more, a performance that would’ve been better off lying on the cutting-room floor.

Lyrics

"Live Forever"

[Verse 1]
Life was just breathin' in and out
Like a movie with the sound turned down
It felt nothin’ like I feel right now
You said "hello" and set the room on fire
Like technicolor in a jet black night
Suddenly the sky's never been so clear
Hey what you doin' in a thousand years?

[Chorus]
If life’s just wakin' up to
Another day of lookin' at you
If all we get is just to be together
It makes me wanna live forever
You make me wanna live forever

[Verse 2]
You tell yourself that you'll never grow old
'Til you find the hand you were meant to hold
Now I never wanna see you one last time
I never wanna know a kiss goodbye

[Chorus]
If life's just wakin' up to
Another day of lookin' at you
If all we get is just to be together
It makes me wanna live forever
You make me wanna live forever

[Verse 3]
If life’s just more of the same
Makin’ you smile, sayin' your name
If all we get is just to be together
You make me wanna live forever

[Chorus]
If life’s just wakin' up to
Another day of lookin' at you
If all we get is just to be together
It makes me wanna live forever
You make me wanna live forever
You make me wanna live forever
You make me wanna live forever
