“Mad Hatter” by Melanie Martinez

Mental Health Songs Mad Hatter Melanie Martinez

The chorus in “Mad Hatter” by Melanie Martinez goes, “I’m nuts, baby, I’m mad / The craziest friend that you’ve ever had / You think I’m psycho, you think I’m gone / Tell the psychiatrist something is wrong.” The song doesn’t sugarcoat words or skirt around topics. It takes words with negative mental health connotations like “psycho” and “nuts” and helps to reclaim them. The experience is heightened even more with the music video. If you’ve seen the video, you’ll know it plays into the song title with a fantastical off-kilter world. The song powerfully ends, “All the best people are crazy, all the best people are” sung twice. It’s a line that will hopefully stick in people’s minds and help them see a different perspective.
