Disclaimer: Not a music expert, just a music fan. Really loving Liam’s voice on this album. WANT TO EXPRESS IT, maybe I do so in an OTT manner. Sorry :( Enjoy, reblog, like, gimme your two cents, whatever!
LWWY: “Hey girl I’m waitin’ on ya, I’m waitin’ on ya…” Okay, so I know people call him boring, especially as a first verse man, but honestly, Liam is so consistent. He’s got this voice that is supremely deep and pleasant when he’s not even trying, and in LWWY, he is perfectly suited for the kind of cheeky, sort of unthreatening nature of how the song starts.
Kiss You: Hahaha oh no. The first album song with LIAM’S FALSETTOS oh no. “And if youuuuu, you want me tooooo, let’s make a mooooove” no no no Liam, how could anyone NOT want you? How could I NOT want to make a move with you, what is this VOODOO? I wish he had a verse here, but he’s utilized SO WELL in these falsetto parts.
Little Things: Oh jeez, Liam and Zayn harmonizing again, HAHA BYE. Liam, in one song, shows his range—the wavery, deeper, more intimate tone of his actual verse, and then that higher, softer harmonizing with Zayn. Literally my favorite thing is when Liam harmonizes with the others, because his voice suits everyone—complements everyone— so WELL.
C’mon C’mon: Okay so…remember how Liam in Stole my Heart was sex personified? Remember? STRAP THE FUCK IN. “The one that I came with, didn’t know how to move…the way that you let your hair down, I can tell that you do..” LIKE WOW. Quickest way to get me squirmy in the pants is for Liam to sound so insinuating. His voice is like goddamn butter here. It’s like leather and sex and hands skimming down someone’s sweaty-ass dancing body and jfc I can see the strobe lights now.
Last First Kiss: Remember when Liam, Louis, and Zayn wrote this together???? 8) Anyway, first verse man strikes again, but phroawr. “Baby I, I wanna know, whatcha think when you’re alone, is it me, yeah?” Oh man. Aside from basically asking if I masturbate to him (….) the emotions that Liam can put into a song…the longing, the wonder…coupled with the velvety smooth quality of his voice? NOT TO MENTION that part near the end of the song, “Girl what would you do, would you wanna stay, if I were to saaaaaay…” oh MY god, what the fuck does his voice do there?? Is that magic? It SOUNDS SO GOOD IS MY POINT
Heart Attack: Liam’s a team player here—if I listen really hard, I can hear his voice blending so well with the other guys in the chorus and it makes me smile. “Baby now that you’re gone, I can’t stand dumb love songs, missing you is all I’m thinking about…” And his verse? He is such a vocal chameleon—at first, it was so raspy I thought it was Harry, but the way he pronounces “about” tips me off (lol this stalker now) and he just sounds LOVELY.
Rock Me: OKAY CAN WE TALK ABOUT THIS? THIS LINE: “We were together summer 09, wanna roll back like pressing rewind, you were mine and we never said goodbye-ee aiyah-eye-aye” BECAUSE THAT LITTLE AYE-YAYAYIE-II-I PART LITERALLY DESTROYS ME. His voice here is low, sultry, sort of stuttery but in a specific way where he is trying to be stylistic I guess? And it works, jFC it works. OH ALSO you can heAR HIM SO WELL during “R-o-c-k me again” and HIS VOICE is so SMOOTH and sort of yearny—like Louis in some ways, imo 8) —and it’s just. So good. Anyway. This is my fave TMH song so I need to stop before I flail all over the place.
Change My Mind: LIAM’S FALSETTO (idk if that’s the right term but basically when Liam sings really high and sexy) AGAIN. “But baby if you say you want me to stay, I’ll change my mind, cause I don’t want to know, I’m walking away, if you’ll be mine—” Basically whenever I hear Liam sing this way, I’m reminded that he can do SO much with his voice, like we laud Zayn for vocal acrobatics but Liam also has a really good range that he utilizes really well when he sings.
I Would: First verse man again, OH MY GOD. Liam. “Lately I’ve found myself thinking, been dreaming about you a lot, up in my head I’m your boyfriend, but that’s one thing you’ve already got.” UP IN MY HEAD IM YOU’RE BOYFRIEND? Liam’s got the perfect voice to sing lines from the POV of a longing romantic prospect, like it’s got this vulnerable quality to it, but it also is so—deep—so it sounds really authoritative? Like this girl is CRAZY for not giving up her 27 tatted boyf for Liam. Which she is.
Over Again: Oh okay, ANOTHER SHEERAN SONG where Liam’s accent morphs and he sings all soft and sweet. “Said I’d never leave her cause her hands fit like my tshirt, tongue tied over three words….” “running over words that make my feet hurt, body’s entertwined with her lips” CAN WE JUST SIT HERE AND MARVEL AT HOW CLEAR LIAM’S VOICE IS? Like a bell. He enunciates so well here, you can hear every syllable, and there’s this pure quality to his voice that fits the earnest nature of this song so well. And then his fucking voice goes HIGH again near the end, just a moment to spotlight how beautifully he commands his voice at even the higher end of his range…gah.
Back for You: “Whenever I close my eyes, I picture you there, I’m looking out at the crowd, you’re everywhere” WOW LIAM. Vocal chameleon strikes again. The raspy quality here again—the almost rock-pop sound of his voice—fooled me into thinking it was Harry again, but when you hear the way he pronounces his words, you are reassured it’s Liam again and then you’re FREAKING OUT. Because wow. Sexy. (Let’s not talk about later in the song, when he does the ‘lately, I’ve been going crazy’ part all low and sweet okAY?)
They Don’t Know About Us: This 90s boyband reality, oh man. Liam is straight up Brian Littrelling it OUT here, jeez. “People say we shouldn’t be togetha, we’re too young to know about foreva, but I say they don’t know, what they’re talk talk talkin about” He’s got this slow-jam poppy quality to his voice here, and it makes me want to fan myself SERIOUSLY.
Summer Love: REMEMBER HOW THEY ALL HELPED WRITE THIS SONG? First, the harmonies. Wow. Again, Liam is a team player here—rounding out the sound perfectly, taking that high part and low part in turns, if I’m correct. Gosh, I love him. ANYWAY: “Don’t say the words that’s on your lips, don’t look at me that way, just promise you’ll remember, when the tide is grey” LIKE, I know this is a country pop song, apparently, but this is some straight up rockstar RASP going on, like Liam literally sounds ages older, and commanding and
Basically Liam in this whole album isn’t as prominent as I wish he would be now that I’m doing this post but that’s basically MY FEELINGS ABOUT ALL OF THEM I want them all to sing lots and lots because their voices—including Liam’s—drip sex and fun and love and all that good stuff.
Thanks for your time.
