It Is You

Album: Natalie Prass (2015)
  • This was inspired by the music in a scene during Paul Thomas Anderson's 2002 film Punch-Drunk Love when "He Needs Me" (a song written by Harry Nilsson for Robert Altman's 1980 Popeye live-action movie musical) can be heard playing. Prass explained to Uncut: "I got kind of obsessed with 'He Needs Me' by Harry Nilsson from the Popeye movie and I started writing a whole bunch of music like that. Not everyone's gonna like it, there's gonna be a lot of people confused maybe, I feel like it's music that's undeniably in your blood. I like it, closing up the record, for sure."
