Another month is upon us and that’s means another song from the Bouncing Souls. One more to go folks! The song is “Big Eyes,” the 11th track from the 12 track album from The Bouncing Souls, available on the first of every month all year long! You can purchase the song and others for 99 cents here.
Greg from the band talks about the song “Big Eyes:”
The lyrics to “Big Eyes” was a classic Souls collaboration. When we colaborate on lyrics it can make the song meaning a bit vague because the original inspirations came from different heads. Somehow we follow a musical/lyrical thread that makes sense in some indescribable way and they fit together. I was gone for a couple of days from the writing session and when I came back the guys had created the chorus lyrics and music to this song. After hearing what the guys had written with Ted, I imagined a girl of about twenty moving to a big city to start a life on her own. I saw Los Angeles in my mind, with its high aspirations and troubled dark side. The verse music came next and the verse lyrics evolved over time. To me, the song is not exactly about anything. Maybe its talking about wanting a friend. Maybe its about the search for a real friend.
See the Souls live!
