Review: "Sleep Tonight (This Is The Life)" - Switch Disco x Sam Feldt x R3HAB

This song, “Sleep Tonight (This Is The Life)” by Switch Disco, Sam Feldt, and R3HAB, is an upbeat, dance pop song that perfectly encapsulates the energy and sensuality of a night out at a club. Interpolating the international hit “This Is The Life” by UK artist Amy MacDonald, this song tells the story of temptation, and the connection between two strangers dancing around each other all night, both knowing the inevitability of where the night will lead. With lyrics like “Baby, I’m so bad, I’m a real temptation” and “When you’re lookin’ at me with that look in your eyes”, the song builds the tension through the verses, reaching a peak in the chorus with the lyric “Baby, I know, I know where you’re gonna sleep tonight.” 

“Sleep Tonight (This Is The Life)” is a perfect dance song, keeping the energy high and hype throughout the entire piece. On the shorter side, at only a little over two minutes, the song packs a punch in the limited time it takes up, both satisfying you as a listener and also leaving you wanting more. The pace is consistently fast, and the way the vocals feel almost rushed to keep up with the pace creates a frantic feeling that’s perfect for a song of this genre. I could see this song easily becoming a club favorite, with a heavy and hard-hitting beat perfect for a crowd of people all dancing and having a good time!
