Song Of The Day #26.


Editors – Orange Crush

Having been played this only a few moments ago, this really IS a song of the day. This is Editors doing their own take of a particularly good REM song, which can be a very risky game to play, especially given the status the latter band appear to have built up over the past years (although maybe not so much in the younger generations?), and the rocky nature of Editors – although only inasmuch as half the world saying they sound too much like Joy Division (or Interpol) to be good, and the other half saying “maybe they do, but at least this is slightly more upbeat”. I believe the general sound of Editors lends itself very well to this song and, although they haven’t done too much that’s wildly different with it, I would say this is a success as a cover version. What do you think? I mean this is an absolute tune anyway, so it’s hard to go wrong, but there are some dire covers out there. This is not one of them.
