David Guetta & Kim Petras – “When We Were Young (The Logical Song)” video
“When We Were Young (The Logical Song)” is a futuristic banger that thematically looks to the past. The song is a high BPM stormer, incorporating hyper-pop influences and classic ‘90s piano into David Guetta’s peerless sound. “When we were young it seemed that life was so wonderful,” goes the earworm chorus, with Kim Petras providing the nostalgic verses about the innocence of youth. Crafting the track around a pitched-up interpolation of Supertramp’s classic “The Logical Song,” the French mastermind is sure to strike gold once again with this new smash collaboration.
