"My Head Is in the Sun" is the fourteenth track on The Rentals 1999 album Seven More Minutes.


"My Head is in the Sun" is notable for being the only released track co-written by Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo and Matt Sharp. Sharp commented on the songwriting process in an interview with in 1999:

BH: How did the song "My Head Is in the Sun" with Rivers come about?

Matt: I was living at his house in Boston, and he was out here trying out people to replace me. He came back for a weekend. We sat around and sang songs, played his songs and my songs, other people's songs. I had been stuck on that song for a really long time. I just couldn't figure out how to finish it up, and it had taken me like three years to write that song. It's one of the only ones that took a long time, and I had basically just given up on it all together. So I played it for him and he sort of worked on it with me. It was cool and relaxed. It was the first time we got to truly collaborate on something.

The song was covered by the band Aberfeldy for the compilation Friends of P - Tribute to the Rentals


The Rentals



Silence in the air
At the end of the affair
End of the run (It's just begun)
Silence in the air
I don't know if I even care about anyone (You look overrun)

My head is in the sun
Seven more minutes to hide away
Far from everyone
Seven more minutes slide away
Somewhere in the sun (Somewhere far from everyone)
My head is in the sun
