16 Inspiring Songs That Open Up About Mental Health
“Fake Happy” by Paramore
Have you ever tried to put on a “brave face” and hide how you’re really feeling inside? The majority of us have done it and we’ve likely done it for a variety of reasons. “Fake Happy” by Paramore is a song that explores it. It’s honest, candid, and has all of the feelings. Hayley Williams sings, “I love making you believe / What you get is what you see / But I’m so fake happy I feel so fake happy / And I bet everybody here / Is just as insincere.” It is such a true statement. She continues, “Oh please don’t ask me how I’ve been / Don’t make me play pretend.” If you’ve never seen the video, watch it because it strengthens what is being said in the pop-rock track.
