Song of the Day: Metallica – “Nothing Else Matters”

Happy birthday to Metallica frontman, guitarist, and co-founder James Hetfield, who turns 53 today. It’s a bit surprising to see that this song only peaked at No. 34 on the U.S. Hot 100 since it seemed to have such high radio airplay and still can be heard on rock radio. The song was written by Hetfield during a phone conversation with his girlfriend in 1990, with the lyrics “so close, no matter how far” being a description of the closeness of their relationship.
