TikTok is being — unnecessarily? — segregated into two genres for the most part, the Elite TikTok and Straight TikTok. Elite TikTok is mainly a subgenre of Alt TikTok, and you can find if you are on this side of TikTok by taking an Alt TikTok Quiz.
But that doesn’t mean the ever-popular lip-syncing videos and all are done. TikTok is all about keeping up with the latest trends. Some trends are quick to leave, while some stay for years! In this article, we will cover the ‘And when the seasons change’ trend that has been around since 2019! Here is all you need to know about it.
What is ‘And when the seasons change’ song
The content of the videos created in this trend does not seem to have a fixed structure. The entire video is based on the lyrics of the song that goes along with it. However, some aspects do tend to recur with these videos.
For example, most of the videos are shot in slow motion (probably to keep time with the lyrics).
Another recurring aspect is the scenery. A large number of these videos are shot outdoors to depict the ‘seasons’ mentioned in the song. The videos are romantic in nature and targeted at asking out a person the creator likes. They could also point at a close friend (“would you stand by me”).
‘When the seasons change’ original song
The audio snippet used in the trending videos comes from the famous song ‘Mind Over Matter‘ by the band Young the Giant (YTG). The band shot to fame in 2010 and was even featured in Rolling Stone! The song was especially important to the band, who had fallen out of rhythm for a few years; Mind Over Matter was their come-back in 2014.
The song speaks about persevering and seeing things through, instead of giving up at the first hurdle. This is probably why people on TikTok took to it so passionately.
The lines used in the TikTok videos come from the end of the chorus, and read ‘And when the seasons change, will you stand by me?’
