SOTW: Double Take

Artist: Dhruv

Hi! I’m Shaelyn from Block 3 and I’m Y3 Comp Sci.


1. What do u like most about tiktok? and what kind of tiktoks are on ur fyp?

It’s amazing how Tiktok’s algo understands me better than I understand myself; it keeps recommending me videos that keep me hooked, which is both entertaining but extremely bad for my Tiktok screentime (average 2 hours a day… rip). The fast-paced creation of new Tiktok trends makes it a riveting app, the community constantly introduces new songs and lingo, keeping the platform vibrant and amusing. Besides that, being a dancer makes the dance challenges fun to watch and learn; I really appreciate how Tiktok gives talented individuals (not just dancers) the chance to gain more recognition and show off their skills. In addition, Tiktok comments have revolutionised my way of thinking because people say things that I would never dare to say irl; it is almost essential to pick up on such lingo and use it in daily conversations, in fear of being labelled as a boomer for not keeping up with the times. My fyp is unfortunately very broken, I’m currently on generic memetok, animetok (specifically aot, ds and jjk), and random sg xmmtok.


2. How did you discover this song? and why did it stand out to u?

I first discovered ‘double take’ because a lot of hot guys and girls were using it for clickbait and it was stuck on my fyp for weeks, I guess it’s my fault for interacting with them too much. Afterwards the #PhotoCropChallenge happened, and since I was intrigued by this, I hopped onto the trend and it kinda blew up for a bit.


3. What does this song mean to you?

‘double take’ is not just a catchy fad for Tiktok, its lyrics hold a deeper meaning about how dhruv, the singer, falls in love with one of his friends and wonders if he feels the same. Being Indian himself, Asian conservatism is not a foreign concept to dhruv, and his experience mirrors the state of this marginalised community in Singapore. While this song has gained much traction on social media, its profound lyrics seeks to spark conversation about this shunned topic, which can prompt Singapore to move towards an increasingly inclusive and progressive society.

Lyrics:

I could say I never dare To think about you in that way, but I would be lyin' And I pretend I'm happy for you When you find some dude to take home But I won't deny that

In the midst of the crowds In the shapes in the clouds I don't see nobody but you In my rose-tinted dreams Wrinkled silk on my sheets I don't see nobody but you

Boy, you got me hooked onto something Who could say that they saw us coming? Tell me Do you feel the love? Spend a summer or a lifetime with me Let me take you to the place of your dreams Tell me Do you feel the love?

And I could say I never unzipped Those blue Levi's inside my head But that's far from the truth Don't know what's come over me It seems like yesterday when I said "We'll be friends forever"

Constellations of stars Murals on city walls I don't see nobody but you You're my vice, you're my muse You're a nineteenth floor view I don't see nobody but you

Boy, you got me hooked onto something Who could say that they saw us coming? Tell me Do you feel the love? Spend a summer or a lifetime with me Let me take you to the place of your dreams Tell me Do you feel the love?

Boy, you got me hooked onto something Who could say that they saw us coming? Tell me Do you feel the love? Spend a summer or a lifetime with me Let me take you to the place of your dreams Tell me Do you feel the love?

Do you feel the love? Do you feel the love? Do you feel the love? Do you feel the love? Feel the love Do you feel the love?
