The song about the hospital doors or something
From : Simona Cupaiolo
In 2008 the band REM announced a date in Milan (Italy) and of course I had to buy a ticket - I was so excited and happy! The day arrived. I asked my friend: "Do you know the band who will play before REM?"; he replied "Editors." I thought "Oh right, the band who sings about the hospital doors or something" (back then, I barely knew the songs). As soon as Editors went on stage and started playing, I was like "WTF dude... they're... wow... and that voice is... what... haven't listened someone like him in ages... what... where were they before today?". I'm not gonna lie, I barely remember how REM's concert was. Fast-forward to 2019: ten concerts of Editors, lots of tears and smiles shared with friends, long and cold nights spent outside venues just to say "thank you, you're great" to the band I love the most, even tho they're just words. I wish I could give them my heart as a thank you for being part of my life.
