Words and Music by Matthew P. Hanley (BMI)
“Record Player & a Cat” is about realizing that all that glitters is not gold. It’s an uptempo song in which the narrator relates her story of moving to the city and having material success, only to discover that she wants a simple life, or, as she says, “I just want a record player, a record player and a cat.”
“Record Player & a Cat” is the 8th track on the Starring MH album “Whenever Next Time Is.”
There are 2 videos of RPC. Our friend Rose made an excellent official Sand Records music video telling the story of a disillusioned young professional, set in Santiago, Chile.
There is also a live, at-home acoustic performance by Matt Hanley and friend Sammy (who is Rose’s boyfriend).
