A Quickie From Lisa Marie: Running Out Of Empty (by The Spaceship Martini)


One of my favorite songs from 2009 was the Spaceship Martini’s Running Out Of Empty.  The song was written for Lymelife, a flawed but still oddly effective little movie that featured excellent performances from Rory Culkin, Emma Roberts, Alec Baldwin, and especially Timothy Hutton.

Running Out Of Empty is used to score the film’s final scenes and it brings the perfect melancholy touch to the entire movie.  I could devote a lot of space to everything that didn’t work in Lymelife but it does have an absolutely perfect ending and this song and its use in the film has a lot to do with that perfection.
