Someone asked me “How come Headlong is called Headlong?” and I was thrilled to refer them to the Pixies (cover) and Jesus and Mary Chain (original) versions of “Head On,” whence, indeed, my Headlong gets its name. What a song! It captures so perfectly that feeling of having made a connection, knowing you’ve made it, as authentic and visceral and satisfying as two hands meeting in the dark. “As soon as I get my head ’round you. . .”
