#83 – Smile Empty Soul – Bottom of a Bottle (2003)
This song reminds me of my senior year of college. When it came out I had to raise an eyebrow because of the lyrics:
I do it for the drugs
I do it just to feel alive
I do it for the love
That I get from the bottom of a bottle
Probably isn’t much doubt as to why I really gravitated to this tune.
Smile Empty Soul wasn’t anything particularly special, and musically they remind me of a TV show you don’t love, but you’ll watch if nothing else is on.
But I have to give them credit; I still find myself listening eight years later. I don’t listen to a lot of Chevelle or Trust Company anymore, two similar bands from the same era, but one day I’ll probably have to check out the rest of Smile Empty Soul’s stuff.
