About “Be My Mistake”

“Be My Mistake” is about an insignificant hookup after, or perhaps even during, a relationship.

The band’s frontman, Matty Healy, told Pitchfork:

“Be My Mistake” is just about guilt. It’s about when you are a young person and you struggle sometimes to figure out what you really want. And sometimes, like a lot of things, it requires you to make a mistake before you actually understand what you have. And then maybe you push people away, and then you realize that the idea of a casual relationship with somebody is just not really something that you want.

He mentions Nick Drake as an influence on the song’s acoustic feel.

The band released an acoustic version of “Be My Mistake” on 5th December, 2018:

  • What have the artists said about the song?

    This song feels particularly vulnerable, a ballad that plays like you’re singing to just one person. What were you writing about?

    The arrangement is very sparse. It’s mostly just your vocals and acoustic guitar.

    I love Nick Drake and shit like that, but I’m not into your modern singer-songwriter dude. So I always stylistically stay away from it, but then I realized that’s where a lot of the truth is, if you do it right. I want people to feel personally addressed. If you’re going to tell the truth like that, you can’t dress it up.
