GREATEST HITS | Matt Nathanson


by Lizzie Savage

Despite the fact that nearly all of his best songs (in my not-so-humble opinion) have come out in the past decade, Matt Nathanson has been releasing music for almost 25 years. “Come on Get Higher” came out when I was 10 years old, and it was my favorite song for a long time. But unlike most of my other childhood favorites–who I left with my pink lip gloss and denim skorts back in 2007–my love for Matt Nathanson is currently stronger than ever.

Part of why I still love his music so much is that although he was one of the prime representatives of the sad, sappy love ballads that plagued the mid-2000s, his sound has evolved with time into upbeat, summery acoustic rock, and I can’t get enough. I’ll admit I have a Spotify playlist titled “Happy,” and his last three albums make up about 40% of it.

So, that being said, here are Matt Nathanson’s greatest hits, according to someone who wasn’t even alive for the release of his first three albums.

  1. Come On Get Higher
  2. Faster
  3. Giants
  4. Wide Eyed and Full
  5. Kill the Lights
  6. Mercy
  7. Last Days of Summer in San Francisco
  8. Bill Murray
  9. Bent
  10. Bottom of the Sea
  11. Weight of It All
  12. Everything You Say Sounds Like Gospel
