Why I Love “Midnight Sky” By Miley Cyrus
From a Sagittarius to another Sagittarius
“Midnight Sky” by Miley Cyrus is by far one of my favorite songs in 2020. Honestly, I’ve never felt so connected to a Miley Cyrus song before, so I was inspired to write a story on “Midnight Sky”.
So, this catchy song has everything that I personally love in music. First, the old school disco vibe with a splash of 80s pop really set the tone for the song. It felt refreshing to hear something “new” in pop music.
Second, I love the concept that Miley Cyrus chose to do for “Midnight Sky.” It definitely screamed 70s/80s vibe with a splash of rock n’ roll. The haircut, the style, and the Chanel bodysuit was STUNNING.
To continue, I really liked a very specific part of the songs that I felt brought my inner Sagittarius out. That part was:
I was born to run, I don’t belong to anyone, oh no
I don’t need to be loved by you (by you)
Fire in my lungs, can’t bite the devil on my tongue, oh no
I don’t need to be loved by you
So, that particular part of the song sparked something in me that made me feel very liberated and free. Which is exactly what a Sagittarius is because we love our independence, freedom, and setting our own rules.
Originally, I was going to do a “meaning” portion of the story where I decode the meaning of this song. However, Miley Cyrus already shared a brief meaning of what “Midnight Sky” meant, so I’ll recap everything in my own words on what Miley Cyrus said from her interview at SiriusXM’s “The Morning Mash-Up.”
So, there was a part in the song that said: “forever and ever, no more.” According to Miley Cyrus, this part is basically about her relationship with the (society) stigma and how people seem to put too much emphasis on the word “forever.” I agree with Miley that we’re only setting ourselves up for disappointment when we focus too much on the “forever.”
Cyrus continues to elaborate that we never know who the people in our life will turn into and who we as individuals will become as we evolve in this world. Cyrus then points out that when women in relationships don’t have a “forever” they suddenly get villainized for it.
In my opinion, you sometimes grow apart from certain people in your life especially when you become your “authentic” self. You start to see different perspectives on everything in life and that includes how you view certain people in your life too.
So, that was basically why the part “forever and ever, no more” was significant to Cyrus. I think she summed up the meaning of the song very well and I feel like I understand the song on a much deeper level now.
Overall, I feel like this song was a breath of fresh air. Sometimes we’re caught up in hoping that things will last “forever” that we forget to just live. We forget that things will change and evolve through time.
I feel like we all need our own “Midnight Sky” so can escape this world for just a moment. Sometimes we need to focus on ourselves so we can live our best life.
