"100 Blouses" as written by and Adam Cohen....
So dizzy
I can't close my eyes
So love sick
I want to be with you tonight
So desperate
I think I'll hit the bars
So tired
Of not having you in my arms
I'll take a friend of yours
Out to dinner
Then I'll take off all her clothes
And look for you in her

100 blouses come undone
I look for you in everyone
I touch so much that I go numb
I look for you in everyone

The drugs don't work
I can't get high
But that don't mean that I won't try
Another night of absent flesh
Another night of restlessness
99 lovers to go
I may never fill the whole
98 lovers and I
Still don't feel satisfied
Let everyone come

    General CommentAlright, I go for the idea that love is pretty much the same as friendship. Yeah, a girl (this song is about girls, but my review goes both ways I guess) can be physically 'hot' but there's a certain physical beauty in every girl--and not all guys see it. In addition, there is a such thing as emotional beauty, or loving the person.

    How does this relate to 100 Blouses? This guy either got dumped, or the girl died. (The 'drugs' could be psychiatric, perscribed by a shrink to cope with the death, for example.) Either way, he's dating many girls very quickly to find a replaement for the physical relationship that he had before.

    Or is this not the reason?

    I think, personally, given my belief in an emotional relationship, that this song uses sex as a metaphor. When the song says "I take you out to dinner, and then have sex with you, but you're still not her," the sex is a metaphor for his love for the first girl, which may include a physical relationship but is by no means limited to such.

    I listen to this song for comfort, recently at least. Despite the implication of sex, I think there is a greater implication on the moving on aspect of a terminated (or maybe non-existant?) relationship.

    General CommentIf you like this song, I'd like to suggest two more by Dashboard Confessional under the same theme: "As Lovers Go" off A Mark, A Mission, A Brand, A Scar or the Shrek 2 Soundtrak, as well as "This Ruined Puzzle" off the album "The Places You Have Come To Fear The Most." I strongly suggest buying both albums; I didn't know DC very well but bought both and I'm very pleased.

    My InterpretationThe narrator is lonely, depressed and gets drunk because his girlfriend doesn't come to his rendez-vous, and he only sees her in every woman. That's why he decides to spend the night with a friend of his girlfriend, and wants to see her stripping. For him, the friend is a hundred times more attractive than his girlfriend.
