In just a couple of days, 5 Seconds of Summer’s lead man, Luke Hemmings, will be twenty years old. The baby of the band is growing up and to celebrate we’ve created a list composed of twenty songs that reminds us of Luke.
1. Miles Away – The Maine
In my mind I am miles away
— Luke Hemmings (@Luke5SOS) September 12, 2015
The song lyric “In mind I am miles away,” perfectly describes Luke
2. A Daydream Away – All Time Low
He’s just a daydream away. Or in our case, maybe a fan-fiction away.
3. Hell Nos And Headphones – Hailee Steinfeld
In the 5SOS DVD he talked about music being his escape. When he was on a crowded school bus it’d be headphones in and and the world out for him.
4. Young God – Halsey
He truly is a young god in our eyes.
5. Ever After – Marianas Trench
He’s our perfect disaster. He’s our ever after.
6. Play Date – Melanie Martinez
Let’s be honest, we really do care about this boy a lot and we think about him everyday.
7. The Anthem – Good Charlotte
Good Charlotte is his favorite band and this tune describes a younger him. He didn’t want to be another trend and he didn’t want to be like all the rest. Look at him now.
8. YOUTH – Troye Sivan
Our youth is his and we’re totally okay with it.
9. No Idea | All Time Low
Do we really need to explain this one?
10. Chasing Cars – Snow Patrol
The 5SOS boys surprised us with a performance of this tune at Sounds Live Feels Live and we’re still not over it!
11. What’s My Age Again – blink 182
Uh, what’s his age again? We think he turns 10 soon. He’ll be hitting the double digits.
12. Girls & Boys – Good Charlotte
Luke has stated before that Girls & Boys is his favorite Good Charlotte tune and we still can’t believe the 5SOS boys got the opportunity to perform it with the Madden brothers at ROWYSO.
13. Tear In My Heart – twenty øne piløts
The songs on the radio are okay, but our taste in music is his face.
14. Fire n Gold – Bea Miller
This tune is about knowing it’s okay not to be okay, a topic that’s very important to Luke and rest of 5SOS. Oh, and there’s also this really cool 5SOS edit with the song in it!
15. A Drop In The Ocean – Ron Pope
Four years ago he covered this song in his bed room when no one knew who he was. Who knew we’d all end up praying we’ll end up together?
16. Superman – Joe Brooks
In an interview Luke said this would be the song he dedicated to a girl. You can be our Superman any day, Luke Hemmings.
17. Smile – Avril Lavigne
He’s without a doubt the reason we smile.
18. Holiday – Green Day
The song a younger Luke sang at the top of his lungs over and over until it drove his father crazy.
19. Smash Into You – Hey Violet
This Hey Violet tune is about living recklessly and in the moment, something 5SOS have written about before, in tunes like Never Be.
20. Waste The Night – 5 Seconds of Summer
This 5SOS tune seems to fit Luke perfectly. When talking about the writing of the song Zakk Cervini said, “Luke went in and laid down the chorus and it just clicked. It’s a really simple song, but it’s a different song for 5 Seconds of Summer. Luke is a really chilled, relaxed guy, and that song is similar [to him].”
