“Chills” by Why Don’t We
The title of this song (“Chills”) has two different meanings. On one hand it represents the physical environment the vocalist finds himself in. The stage is set during a “long December”, i.e. the height of the winter season when it is chilly. But more to the point is that the addressee of also gives him “chills”.
Or perhaps the best way of describing this sentiment is that he gets internally excited when he hears her voice or when she looks at him, touches him or is even in close proximity. Or stated otherwise, he is fascinated by every aspect of her being. And somewhat conversely on a metaphorical level, he is looking forward to her ‘keeping him warm’ during the cold of winter. So succinctly put, this is love jam. And its motif is based on using temperature-related metaphors to illustrate just how strongly the singer(s) feels about the woman he loves.
