“Doctor Please” by Jim and Sam – A Song Review

      “Doctor Please” is written from the perspective of someone waiting for health news. He is limited as to whom to ask for positive news, since he is not a believer in the Father. So, he addresses brother, sister and Mother:
Sister when you’re praying
Could you pray for me
‘Cause I don’t know that song
Those chords or that key

          The song is a touching track from Jim and Sam, a husband-and-wife singer/songwriter duo based in Los Angeles. They are Samantha Yonack and Jim Hanft. “Doctor Please” motivated us to explore their other work. Each song was relatable and brimming with a passion for their music.
