Said Nobody

Album: Meat and Candy (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • Old Dominion lead singer Matthew Ramsey sings about all the things that bore him in life, but then adds the popular catchphrase "Said nobody ever" to flip the song into an ode to his greatest pleasures. He tells his love interest he'll never grow tired of her the same way he'll never get bored by a sunset.
  • The band was on the road when guitarist/keyboardist Trevor Rosen came up with the tune: "Trevor was sitting between us with a guitar and just does what he normally does which is make up something just goofy to make everybody laugh, and he spit out this line and we were like, 'Wait a minute, that's actually pretty cool.' And it turned into that song."
