Deathcab for Cutie - Brothers on a hotel bed

posted by Tim

There was a song during the horse race scene (and flashback scene) that had the lyrics "and now you're gone". Does anyone know which song that was?

Searching by lyrics online came up with nothing since those lyrics are so common.

Who sings the cover version of Howard Jones' song "No One Is to Blame"? It can be heard when Tommy first approaches Kate Farrell for a loan.

i don't think that the last song in the episode is Brothers on a Hotel Bed. i looked for it, and the lyrics and melody don't fit.

does anyone know what the last song is? (the one that is in the background as jimmy gives sean the money)

posted by Colleen

actually the last song is an unreleased song called "gone to pieces" by Mike Schmid
-its available on

What's the song for when the boys went to play some softball? I love that sound and I want it so badly

The song on the website is "Broken Sorrow" by 'Nuttin' but Stringz'. They are on myspace and have a website. Do a search on google. They have another great track called "thunder" but I can't find the full broken sorrow track anywhere.

(^read above^)
if you have the episode, play it while you look at the lyrics. it is clearly this song

"Gone to Pieces" by Mike Schmid is a pretty song, but it is incorrect for this episode.

James Morrison - "Under the Influence"

When it was shown on ITV2 (in UK), end song is definitely Schmid's ‘Gone to Pieces’ (starts as Tommy asks Kate for money the 2nd time). Occasionally different songs are used for tv/dvd because the rights cost too much– that might explain confusion?

Hey,guys. Does anyone know the name of the song where Sean and Jimmy are talking about Sean's problems and he's asking Jimmy for money so he can buy an apartment of his own?
