In an exclusive interview, Maggie Szabo told me what inspired her to write the song. "'Smile' is a song I wrote on the beautiful island of Santorini in Greece at the legendary Black Rock Recording Studio. This song was inspired by someone I was in love with for a very long time, but it was a relationship that just couldn't work. I remember wishing I could delete the memories from my brain so I could just move on with my life, but unfortunately it wasn't that easy. I had to face the fact that there wasn't some magical cure, or a simple solution to get over someone; the only thing that I could do is let time do its work. That's what 'Smile' is about," she said.
Maggie Szabo's bravery connects with music lovers on a very fundamental level. We all know what it is like to lose someone that was once important to us. Being able to express the feeling of grief and sadness is not the easiest task in the world. Szabo delivers dynamite vocals in "Smile" to capture a realistic slice of life that we are familiar with.
