“The Last Goodbye” (Live On Letterman) (Video)

    Blood Pressures took the Kills into a few different directions, with the contemplative “The Last Goodbye” the most obvious example of that. Anyone tuning into David Letterman’s show last night expecting to see Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince delivering one of their pulverizing rock tracks will have been in for a surprise—this is a sad-eyed, synth driven ballad, which shows off Mosshart’s powerful vocal in ways we’ve rarely heard before. At least they still look like they’ve been up all night smoking and drinking and listening to old Stooges records. “Is he bothering you?” Letterman quips at the close, when Hince moves closer to Mosshart, picking up on his disheveled appearance.
