Overthink Music - Unwell (Matchbox 20)


Anther round of overthinking. This is a song that has meant a lot to me growing up with depression. Click "read more" to hear my story.

I do not quite remember when I first heard this song, but even as a kid whenever it played on the radio I could not help but feel a connection. At one point in life or another, some will ask what song feels like it is about you, for me it is Unwell. "I'm not crazy I'm just a little unwell". People have called me crazy before and just like the song goes, I could also hear people talking "and it makes me think there's something wrong with me". It is hard not to imagine this song is about me to the point were it even calms me down whenever I get depressed about anything.

Now am I well aware, that a lot of those feelings are just my own imagination. Obviously this song was most likely written with the singer's mental state in mind and tons of the relations are probably not as accurate as I have convinced myself they are. But, this is why I consider this one Overthinking. Regardless, this is a great song that has become a personal safety blanket for me. I leave with a great quote from this song, "stay awhile and maybe then you'll see, a different side of me".
