The Song ‘Closer’ by The Chainsmokers – Adrian’s goosebump moment
“Hello! My name is Adrian, I am from Mexico, and I will talk to you about my favorite, goosebump moment about a song. So several years ago, I went to Phoenix, Arizona with my older brother to watch the NCAA basketball game, the final. We decided to go to the stadium early because we knew there was going to be an event, a music event. So yes, it was like a mini concert outside the stadium before the game started and the artist who was going to present at that time were the Chainsmokers. It was a really, really energetic concert in an energetic crowd because it was basically all students and when they sang the song ‘Closer’ I literally had goosebumps on my arms. It was a really cool experience and I loved it!”
Hit Song ‘Closer’
The Chainsmokers have been one of the most popular DJ duos who have created many hit songs, and one of those is their song ‘Closer’, which features singer Halsey.
It was released on July 29, 2016, and it immediately became a massive hit in the music industry. The song was written by Andrew Taggart himself, Halsey, Shaun Frank, Freddy Kennett, Isaac Slade, and Joe King. What’s interesting about the song is that it was the first time that Andrew Taggart sang lead vocals, except for background vocals in their song ‘Roses’.
Musically, the song is a fusion of future bass and pop. It features a retro style synthesizer in the chorus that makes it sound distinct and unforgettable. The Chainsmokers handled the main song production, while DJ Swivel produced Halsey’s vocals. Together, they create a unique harmony that makes the listener feel every beat, every word, and every emotion.
The lyrics of the song are about two former lovers who meet again and reminisce about their times together. The song starts with Taggart singing the first verse, followed by Halsey singing the second verse. The chorus then features both of them singing together, which creates a powerful message that sticks to people’s hearts. The song’s catchy melody, combined with the meaningful lyrics, makes it a go-to song for those who want to be reminded of their past and how they overcame it.
One of the reasons why ‘Closer’ became a massive hit is because it’s relatable. Almost everyone has experienced falling in love and then breaking up. The song’s message speaks to the listener’s emotions and makes them remember how they felt when they were in a similar situation.
