Song of the Day, May 25: Sorrow Floats by Voice of the Beehive

VoBSorrowToday’s song is a splendid reflection on substance abuse. Voice of the Beehive mixed gorgeous pop with smart lyrics on their powerful debut album Let It Bee. One of the standouts is Sorrow Floats. The Belland sisters sing about a friend who is having trouble coping with life. Only 22, she “feels her life is through” and uses excessive drinking as a crutch. Sympathetic but frustrated, firm but kind, they offer a pair of stern questions with a stinging observation.

Don’t you ever get sick of feeling sick about it ?
Don’t you ever get sick of feeling sick without it ?
Sorrow floats

Enjoy this powerful song today.
