Bad Boys - Zara Larsson


The Experience: Something 'bout the bad boys that make the good girls fall in love. It's not easy to get into the hardened heart of a bad boy. Maybe that's exactly why Zara wants the challenge to make him "mine alone". But at the back of her mind she wonders "If you're no good for me..."   


The Video: Zara performs on an empty stage. She dances bad for the bad boys. Lights go off and on - does she want the light or the darkness? You decide.

My Take: Good girls fall for bad boys for different reasons. Here's the main ones. Sometimes the bad boys seem more sure of themselves, more confident. They break rules, they look more secure. No girl wants an insecure boyfriend. Bad boys look like they have that edge. Or maybe bad boys look more free, and offer that freedom to the good girlsBad boys are also the hardest to get. Girls like a challenge - and they also want to heal his hardened heart with their love. 
But the 'freedom' and the 'security' of a bad boy is something aggressive, it fights against what it hates. Bad boys like bad girls when they fight together against their hates. But their hearts aren't full of love... and that's what the good girls thought they could get in the first place. Zara's stuck with the question: How can a bad boy be good for me? 

Ask Yourself: What kind of person am I in love with? What do I give to him? What does he get out of me?  


LYRICS:


Ask me to stay and I'm not gonna leave
Don't make me wait with my heart on my sleeve
'Cause I won't go 'less you want me to
I'll surrender it all for you
Friends turn to foes I don't know who to trust
You say I worry, I worry too much
But I can't help what I'm feeling now
I just want us to be somehow

I say there's something 'bout the bad boys
That makes the good girls fall in love

I say there's something 'bout the bad boys
That makes the good girls fall in love

Clear as a crystal and sharp as a knife
Words will be words 'til you bring them to life
Show whole world that you're mine alone
Tell them girls to find their own

I say there's something 'bout the bad boys
That makes the good girls fall in love
(And if you're no good for me)

I say there's something 'bout the bad boys
That makes the good girls fall in love
(And if you're no good for me)

Don't leave me stranded
(And if you're no good for me)
Don't leave me, oh
(And if you're no good for me)
I'd rather feel abandoned
(And if you're no good for me)
Then please be gone
(And if you're no good for me)

Don't leave me stranded
(And if you're no good for me)
Don't leave me, oh
(And if you're no good for me)
I'd rather feel abandoned
(And if you're no good for me)
Then please be gone
(And if you're no good for me)

Ooooh...
