My Sunday Song – “Soul Divine” by Jeff Scott Soto

For My Sunday Song #281, we are kicking off a 10 song set of Jeff Scott Soto. They won’t all be his solo work as they will cover his career and many bands. I figured since this past week we kicked off the Jeff Scott Soto Series here at 2 Loud 2 Old Music, why not continue that in to the My Sunday Song Series. First up is the song “Soul Divine” off his 2004 album ‘Lost in Translation’. The song was written by Jeff Scott Soto and Howie Simon who also played guitar and bass o the song. Glen Sobel played the drums.

“Soul Divine” is about regret. He treated his woman horribly and lost her. He now looks back and in his soul he knows he screwed it up. She was his light and yet he brought her so much pain and he didn’t realize what he did until she was gone and then he realized he had something really great. He has finally gotten to a point in his life where he realizes he was a little shit and feels really bad for it.

Musically, the song is a scorcher. It is heavy on the guitars from Mr. Simon who takes on bass duties as well which is also very prominent on the song. Glen Sobel’s drumming is rich and full force with a great driving beat and cool ass fills. It is a modern, melodic song that might be some of the best stuff Jeff has ever done. Howie’s opening riff is striking and almost singable and he also lays down a tasteful guitar solo that isn’t too boastful and fits the mood of the song. Jeff’s vocals are so masterful on this one. They soar, they are emotional, they are energetic and they are memorable. The chorus is catchy and his tones grab hold and pull you in and will have you singing along by the end. This one is a shining example of the soulful and smoothness of his voice as well. I figured, let’s kick it off with one of his best!!

Give the song and let me know what you think! Let me know what you think and I hope you enjoy it as much as I have. Heck, I hope you enjoy all of these as well as the JSS Series. If I can make a fan out of one of you with the series, then my work is worthwhile!! Thanks for stopping by and have a Happy Sunday!!

“Soul Divine”

In my mind so clear I never let u get away
& thru the years gone by
I knew I’d finally cross your path someday
Well, I’m dying

In my soul divine (I missed every sign)
Didn’t know what I had till u went away
In my soul divine (I crossed every line)
I’ve seen my darkest days

I – I – I’m left regretting
I – I – know you’re not 4getting

U only brought me light
Even on the days I brought u pain
U always saw through darkness
& now I’m left alone in the shame

In my soul divine (I missed every sign)
Didn’t know what I had till u went away
In my soul divine (I crossed every line)
I’ve seen my darkest days

I – I – I’m left regretting
I – I – know you’re not 4getting

In my soul divine

In my soul divine

In my soul divine (I missed every sign)
Didn’t know what I had till u went away
In my soul divine (I crossed every line)
I’ve seen my darkest days

In my soul divine (I missed every sign)
Didn’t know what I had till u went away
In my soul divine (I crossed every line)
I’ve seen my darkest days

I – I – alright
I – I – that makes you wonder
Yeah – Yeah – that’s it, baby..

  1. Count me in as Yngwie fan. This is Soto sharing how he felt about those times

    Lonely…

    I liked the ending of this song, brings to mind Extreme a bit, only heavier version.

    Listening to The Temperance Movement White Bear at the moment. Is there a review of them here?
