About the song:

Released: 2009
Writing Credits: Britt Nicole and Joshua Crosby
Label: Sparrow Records
Length: 3:40

The story: we are encouraged to stand-out; to dismiss hurtful insults and shake off gloominess resulting from such hateful offense because “love” is all-around.

My thoughts: one of the newcomers to the music scene, Britt’s music is fresh and most of the time inspiring. I LOVE this song because it is a bouncy tune that hopefully can be encouraging to young people struggling with issues of self esteem or bullying. Sometimes I do think such things are overblown, but then, I am sure plenty of others would argue with me on that point.

The young Christian songstress does a great job with this song. The music video (see it here) is one-part happiness and rainbows but still demonstrates the struggle some young adults and teenagers may face. It is cute that she can parallel something so serious to interact with something so cheerful. “Headphones” (which appears on the singer’s second album) is definitely the perfect pick for a breezy summer tune to blast on the radio – it just fits the mold. And I cannot wait to hear what’s next from Britt. Many of you may recognize her voice as being one on the Soul Surfer soundtrack. She did not record anything new for the movie, but several of her original songs are featured.

The lyrics: anytime you feel alone… love (love) is coming through your headphones…
