Trust Me I'm a Doctor - The Blizzards

Legbamel Not-Pop

Ostensibly, The Blizzards's Trust Me I'm a Doctor is about a guy and his friends picking up a women in a foreign country by telling them they're doctors. Perhaps they pretend they're with Doctors without Borders, who knows? The pals back up each other's stories so can enjoy one-night stands. Now that doesn't sound like a very nice story but it does make for a fun song.

Trust Me I'm a Doctor was on the Irish band's 2009 album "The Domino Effect", their second and the last one they released. Apparently the song was a chart-topper (well, at number two) and the band had a great time being popular until the lead singer, Niall Breslin, left in 2010. That has pretty well ended the band's meteoric rise and Mr. Breslin doesn't appear to be doing much in the way of singing any more, having shifted to work behind the scenes with 19 Entertainment. Bummer.

At any rate, here's the video, wherein the boys display their indie-pop chops and seem a little more tense than one would think for a song about something to which you'd think they'd be looking forward. And they kill a piano, which is just wrong, but I'm pretending it had been badly damaged anyway and needed to be put out of its stringed misery.
