There’s a reason that the Jonas Brothers’ “Sucker” tallied 30 million+ Youtube views within two days of availability and became the 34th song in the history of Billboard’s Hot 100 to debut at #1: It’s smooth, silky, sexy, sensuous, and snappy with a story line that never goes out of style: desire.
We go together
Better than birds of a feather, you and me
We change the weather, yeah
I’m feeling heat in December when you’re ’round me
I’ve been dancing on top of cars and stumbling out of bars
I follow you through the dark, can’t get enough
You’re the medicine and the pain, the tattoo inside my brain
And, baby, you know it’s obvious
I’m a sucker for you
“Sucker” is as true an expression of desire as 1980’s “What I Like about You,” even though The Romantics weren’t at all smooth or sensuous or sophisticated, rather, they were raw, loud and blatant– exploding with youthful intensity and energy.
What I like about you, you keep me warm at night
Never wanna’ let you go, know you make me feel alright, yea
We predict that “Sucker” could be the song for Spring/Summer listening.
