Matchbox 20’s ‘Bent‘ was one of my favorite songs of the early 2000s. I used to play it on my headphones as I roller-bladed on Santa Monica beach early in the morning – nothing like a sunrise, a beautiful day, an empty California beach and Matchbox 20 blasting in your ears.
‘Bent‘ was from the band’s Mad Season album, and was known at the time as the band’s ‘first love song’.
So today Matchbox 20’s ‘Bent‘ is my Repeat Rotation Video, just to bring back a few memories.
It hit number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100s in July, 2000, by the way. It sadly only lasted at the number 1 spot for a week but, still……….it is quite lovely.
Listen to it below.
