Medicine

Album: Not released on an album (2018)

Songfacts®:

  • A leftover from sessions for Harry Styles' debut self-titled album, "Medicine" was not heard by the general public until the first show of this second world tour in Basel, Switzerland on March 11, 2018.
  • The song finds Styles taking a sensual approach to love.

    Here to take my medicine, take my medicine
    Rest it on your fingertips
    Up to your mouth, feeling it out


    There is a wide debate as to the meaning of the song. One of the lyrics ("The boys and the girls are in, I'll mess around with them, and I'm OK with it") has been interpreted by some as Styles addressing his rumored bisexuality.
