Got7 some ‘Good’ Love ‘Tonight’!
In my opinion, an under-appreciated song isn’t one that the internet proclaims as under-rated; rather a song gathering dust somewhere down in your playlist, because you haven’t listened to this song in a long time!
A song meant for long car-drives, where a group of friends tucked in like filling stuffed inside a full sandwich! It is when you stick your head out of the window and let the winds cosy your hair strands; where you sing along in a tone-deaf manner; a gentle reminder to shed your outer façade and embrace your inner self, wholeheartedly.
The song “Good Tonight” by GOT7 was released in the album ‘Got Love’ on the June 23rd 2014. The song is co-written collapsedone, Crizzy&Guy along with Shin Eun Seung; and co-produced collapsedone, Crizzy&Guy and Fredrik “Fredro” ödesjö.

The song begins with a melodic flute-like sound. It is textured with velvety vocals raising the tempo rhythmically. It is punctuated with the husky baritone of lead rapper Jackson’s verses with JB’s fast-paced singing; elevating the essence of the song. Jinyoung and Youngjae’s beautiful falsetto blends well with the mood of the song.
The lyrics are simple and heartfelt. A love song at its core; it is about asking a girl to make love and not caring about what others might think. My favourite lines are that sung by Yugyeom – ‘Don’t hide it, you can be honest today,’ and Youngjae – ‘Good tonight, if you are okay with it’.
‘Good Tonight’ was released way back in 2014 when the third generation super-group GOT7 were still rookies. It is part of their second mini-album ‘Got Love’ is a perfect fit for this heartwarming and ebullient album by the then novice septet. Listening to this song, I felt a sense of comfort and innocence; even though the theme of the song is a bold one!
