“Act my Age” is one of my favorite songs from One Direction’s Four deluxe edition. I love that the anthem has like a traditional irish music influence on it (Did Niall have something to with this?). It’s hard not to think of that scene from Titanic where Jack shows Rose “a real party.” It’s very upbeat. The lyrics are funny and the chorus is very catchy.
“When I’m fat and old
and my kids think I’m a joke
Cause I move a little slow when I dance
I can count on you after all that we’ve been through
Cause I know that you’ll always understand
I won’t act my age, no I won’t act my age
No, I’ll still feel the same around you”
It’s a fun song for their younger fans to sing along too. I read some critic saying that the song is too immature. Yes, it’s a bit silly but does everything have to be so serious?
