This medicine you want
Medicine you need
Medicine to get you on your feet
I feel weak

Cause every single day
And every single hour too
That medicine it works inside of you
In your head
In your dreams
In your dreams

You worked it so hard
You tried to make it shine
Medicine it keeps you down half mind
In your head

Cause every single day
And every single hour too
That medicine it works inside of you
In your head
In your dreams
In your dreams

Shades of Vini Reilly, again...
What a song-voice!

Me too......wherefore art thou Fred?
I adore Tindersticks, but RP should stop broadcasting this one and only song, while there are plenty to transmit.
By the way the last album "No treasure but hope" is a gem.
Sounds like Durutti Column gone commercial.

Really? In what way? I don't hear it.

Excellent follow-up to Althea

Cellos rock.  
 
As a cellist, I concur 
Live, these guys really know how to... wait for it... ignite the crowd!
from 5 to 7 ..

What a great observation! Never would have thought of it that way, but I feel exactly the same. For me, it's Morphine (the band, not the opiate) that comes to mind.
 
If you can find it, there is a band called Red Elephant. A little more range (both in style & not stuck so low on the bass clef), addition of a cello & guitar. They don't show up on YouTube or Pandora, saw a few used copies of a CD on Amazon.
Love Tindersticks but this is not one of my favorite songs.

I think it's mostly two minor chords - Fm to Cm.

 
damn Proc...you're good at catching these....I think I meant to post this on Wilco's "Jesus, etc."

See...the hazards of listening to RP while at work....and then trying to post song comments too....

That chord progression "Maj, Maj, Min, Maj", while fairly simple, just gives me chicken skin every time....esp. going from BbM (my favorite key) to Cm; that sound just gets me every time.  I'm rating a 9 and not looking back!  PEACE and LONG LIVE RP!!

Do I hear Nik Kershaw's 'Human Racing' on that drum track...?

 
It sounds pretty much like a standard, electronic "bossa nova" beat, which has been on all sorts of drum/rhythm machines for over 30 years.  Kershaw may have used a similar beat.

> nice unassuming sounds

korg mini pops 7 :)
yes nice unassuming sounds, the album art looks like same size paintings by a delicate landscape (skyscape) artist who gazed out a small ceiling portal, capturing cloud banks and an occasional moon
I enjoy this band..quite unique

Wow ... just realized that this is the only Tindersticks song on RP. They are just so much RP. More please.

 
There are a few others.  Nice tune, good groove.

She walked around in marketplace in Athen, and purchased something.

This beatbox sounds like the Eminent organ of Jean-Michel Jarre's Equinoxe 4, half tempo. And half interesting, too.
The picture of app slideshow is hart to the song  #medicin {#Tongue-out}

Thanks for the Notting-ham mention, Bill - I'd not realised that this bunch were from my neck of the woods, so that's worth a couple of extra points from the Nottingham jury. As the song's a bit on the dull side, though, that still only adds up to 6, but it might grow on me. I'll see if they're doing any gigs locally and try to get along.

 
As a start you could stream this from a small ´gig´ they performed at Paris:
https://concert.arte.tv/fr/tindersticks-la-philharmonie-de-paris
Medicine is song number 3 in their concert.
I saw them a few times and I want to go again....
I just wish that Bill would see this concert and decide to play some more Tindersticks........

While I like this, it sounds identical to King Crimson, "One Time"... actually, enough to bring a copyright infringement. 
Nice one.  Fred's local boys doing well.

How interesting that you don't like the voice of Thom Yorke, but, why put this message on this Tindersticks thread? They don't compare well.


This band has been brilliant for 2 decades. So glad to hear them here. To me, they way outrank Radiohead. Plus, Stuart Staples' voice is way less annoying than Mr. Yorke's. More please!
Still the best from UK these days....

Saw Tindersticks in concert 3 times now and want to go again....soon please!
Nice!
Interesting and thoroughly satisfying.  Am going to dig into this album again.
second! Was more than time...Hope to hear more!
don't dislike this at all.

ps first again.  Thanks.
