Awesome Old Song of the Week: "The Freshmen" by The Verve Pipe

The Verve Pipe's one and only hit single became popular during the second semester of my sophomore year of college, so I probably didn't like it quite as much as I would have had it been releases a year earlier.

The Freshmen is a pretty morbid song with some fairly disturbing lyrics, but I never really listened to the words much--it sounded good to me.  According the Wikipedia, the lead singer wrote it over the guilt he felt from an ex-girlfriend committing suicide.  The Freshman was also originally part of the band's first album five years earlier, 1992's I've Suffered a Head Injury.

This may me the most depressing blog I've ever written.  Oh well, I guess it had to happen sometime...
