In case you didn’t know, Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus got married. I thought it was time to celebrate their love because it’s adorable. In honor of their love, I thought I would go back down memory lane and talk about “When I Look at You.” I would rewatch “The Last Song” but let’s be real – that shit was terrible.
Get ready to feel the feels
“When I look at You” was released in February 2010 as the final single from Miley’s underrated EP “The Time of Our Lives” and as a promotional song for her upcoming movie “The Last Song.” It’s a mellow and power ballad in the soft rock genre. Honestly, the production on the song is extremely well done. The subtle strumming of the guitar in the middle of the song to the powerful beat underneath Miley’s killer vocals during the bridge. It’s just so well done.
The lyrics are catchy and strong that you can’t help but just enjoy the song. It’s honestly one of my favorite songs that Miley has put it. It’s just so raw and emotional and to think that she was only 17 years old when she released. Those vocals are everything and they are still everything. Like I honestly forgot how good she was when she was younger and for how long she’s been performing and releasing music for. Between her own music and “Hannah Montana,” she has like 10 albums under her belt and she’s only 26 years old.
If you haven’t seen the video or heard “When I Look at You,” then you are missing out. It’s honestly a classic that should be on every love song playlist. It just one of those songs that will last forever and won’t be outdated. It also doesn’t hurt to listen to live versions. Like Miley performs it at her friend’s wedding and it’s literally everything, EVERYTHING. There’s also a Spanglish version where Miley’s singing in English and David Bisbal is mixing in Spanish and English. If you couldn’t let, I pretty much love this song. Hence why I’m not officially review it or rating it.
