Johan – “Smile Like an Idiot” music video
“And then my best friend of ten years called me up. Yeah, I can tell he’s on his tenth beer. Telling me a story, how he’s always getting horny when he’s drunk. An opportunity arises in the form of my girlfriend. I guess that’s my ex-girlfriend. Here I am, between calls with the people formerly known as my girl and my best friend. Then my mom calls me up, says it’s time to cut me off.” – lyrics
‘Smile Like an Idiot’ tells a bittersweet tale of a young man who smiles a lot and acts like everything is fine, even though it isn’t.
Apparently, he doesn’t care, but deep down he does. Therefore, he stays high to numb the pain until it gets too painful to numb.
Later, he admits that if losing is a game, he would be winning it by a landslide.
‘Smile Like an Idiot’ contains a relatable storyline, harmonious vocals, and melodic instrumentation flavored with urban pop and contemporary R&B elements.
