Maxime McGraw’s latest single “On n’y peut rien” (There’s nothing we can do) is a song about life in general. It talks about the challenges and struggles people face everyday
Maxime McGraw’s voice is deep, smooth and distinctive. It’s also consistent. The music is also very smooth. There’s a folkloric beat that I really enjoy. There’s the feel of Acadie (Acadia, a region in New Brunswick) in it. That’s my point of view. 😉 The music fading towards the end is well done. The tempo increases at gradual rate, which allows the listener to appreciate the song even more.
When I first heard this song, I wasn’t sure what it was about. When I read the lyrics, I had a better understand of what the lyrics meant. It talks about the general struggles of life. However, there is hope and resilience, despite the hardships people face. Whatever is meant to be will happen and there’s nothing anyone can do about it. It’s a song of self-reflection. I really appreciated this song after I understood the lyrics.
