Days Are Forgotten Song Review and Meaning
Personally, this is my favorite song by Kasabian. Tom Meighan did an incredible job as the lead vocalist in this song. The instrumentals and the rhythm is on point as well and the chorus sounds amazing.
According to the Sergio Pizzorno the lead guitarist and song writer the song was about how the band represented themselves and took pride in it.
The lyrics were inspired by Hip-Hop MCs like Doom. I love that whole this-is-us-and-if-you-don’t-like-it-f–k-off attitude. ‘Days…’ is us stating our case. There’s a line in it which goes: ‘Call me a cliché/How right you are.’ I might be a rock ‘n’ roll cliché but I take pride in it.Sergio Pizzorno
Apart from that what the song means, I am not that sure myself. But in my opinion, it is about how time passes by so quickly and the past is more or less forgotten.
So, in the entire scheme of things one’s relevance is going to fade sooner or later. Ironically, the singer mentions that he will never be forgotten probably implying that the listener will never forget what the former told him.
The singer is looking forward to the future and talks about waiting for someone or something to take him over. It is perhaps about falling in love with a person or finding a new purpose in life which consumes him.
So, this was my opinion on the song. Let me know yours in the comments below.
