For My Sunday Song #48, I am going with my favorite Matt Nathanson song called “Headphones”. The song features singer LOLO and is off Matt’s album ‘Show Me Your Fangs’ released in 2014. It is one of his best albums, so check it out.
The song “Headphones” for me is about putting on my headphones, listening to music and escaping. When you listen to music, it can take all your cares in the world and throw them out the window. With music, you can feel invincible (as the song states). The song is everything I feel about music and how important it is in my life. Heck, I even started a blog where all I talk about is music. I have only known this song for 3 years now, but it is the soundtrack to my feelings on music.
The song is actually about a girl who moves to the big city to have a fresh start. Where everyone around her is concerned with trivial things, she is out there being who she is. Her escape is music and she is happy just sitting around listening to music and not getting caught up in the madness. Matt is great at telling stories and he knocks another one out of the park with this one. Matt is one of the best songwriters out there and I can’t get enough of his music.
