“Part of what makes this song interesting — beyond a fairly catchy hook — is that, for a big pop song, it’s unusually explicit about same-sex desire. It still feels fresh, in 2015, for a male singer to sing that he’s “crossing every line to get to boys like you.” Sure, Sam Smith and Frank Ocean proved that being proudly queer is no obstacle to mainstream musical success — but many of their songs are on the angsty side. And “Boys Like You” is as bright and cheery as can be. There’s nothing political about it, which makes it kind of radical.” —Joe Satran, Huffington Post Big fan of the last line.—Joe Gage
