The Saddest Orchestra (It Only Plays For You) by Ed Harcourt by seaninsound published on 2013/10/16 13:26:50 +0000 Taken from the forthcoming album Time of Dust, set for release via CCCLX Music on January 6th 2014. Ed says: "One of my earliest memories is seeing Tom from Tom & Jerry dressed as a conductor, tapping the lectern with his baton and whooshing his impressive & mane-like Beethoven style wig before leading his cartoon feline orchestra into some frenetic score. Turns out that Jerry wants to conduct too so they end up fighting for the position. I always felt Jerry was a bit of a dick. He really makes Tom's life a total misery. Whilst playing the drums on this song I developed a third arm which really helped with the 2000 BPM snare roll.
