My Latest Favorite Song - Editors - Smokers Outside The Hospital Doors

I was smitten when I heard this song on my way to rehearsal last night. It is by Editors, called "Smokers Outside The Hospital Door." It was exactly what I needed to hear at that particular point in time. I was a little tired, as usual, after a typical day of mumming. I hadn't been in top form at the last rehearsal - I needed to hear this song. And out of the radio it came to me. I lovelovelove this kind of bassline. Muy straightforwardo. Bringing me back to why I like to play the bass. And I like the singer's voice. (And his eyebrows too! - see the video, below) The chorus...the guitar riffs...everything - just stick in my head. This is good stuff.

Hear more Editors music here.

P.S. It is my opinion that I kicked ass at rehearsal. Thank you, Editors.

P.P.S. Come to my show tomorrow night (SATURDAY JUNE 23) at TT THE BEARS, CAMBRIDGE, MA. We're on late, but we are worth it, ya pansies!
