SONG OF THE WEEK #147: Morphine - "You Speak My Language"

Listening to Morphine is a lot like going on a drinking binge. A fascinating nose-dive. Two-string bass drenched in saxophone, narcotic vibe and uniquely shaped melodies. "You Speak My Language" appeared on Good (1992), and this live performance taken from a French TV show is every bit as hard-hitting as the studio recording. Plus you have "Honey White" as a bonus. Mark Sandman, who died so prematurely in 1999, looks exactly like the sort of person who would front a band called Morphine.
