#9 “She’s Thunderstorms” off SUCK IT AND SEE

Just a poetic song about sex with some stellar lyrics.

#12 A Certain Romance

In music on 08/29/2013 at 02:47


You know…it’s a funny thing, you know? Until “505” came around, this was the band’s staple closer; and rightly so. While the band’s debut had some great tracks, the sheer impact of Matt Helders’ intro demonstrated how special future records would be, as does the popcentric chaos that ends this 5 minute barn burner. This song is best enjoyed with a cold beer and a couple of good friends.

#13 If You Were There, Beware

#13 “If You Were There, Beware” off YOUR FAVOURITE WORST NIGHTMARE

Never does the band blend their trance-rock/Humbug aspirations with headbanging guitar riffs as well as they do on this track. AM is next Tuesday folks!

#15 “Jeweller’s Hands” off HUMBUG

Arguably the band’s most lyrically impressive track to date. If you have any idea what it’s about…teach me, I’m listening, ready to learn.

#16 “The Hellcat Spangled Shalalala”

#16 “The Hellcat Spangled Shalalala” off SUCK IT AND SEE

The first time I heard this song I knew it would stick. A poppy song for a sunny day, a bouncing bass line and playful lyrics, plus all those happy shalalalas.

#17 From the Ritz to the Rubble

#17 “From the Ritz to the Rubble” off WHATEVER PEOPLE SAY I AM, THAT’S WHAT I’M NOT

One of the greatest first verses you will ever hear.

#18 Fire and the Thud

18. “Fire and the Thud” off HUMBUG

“The day after you stole my heart
everything I touched told me
it would be better shared
with you.”

A slow, sexy tune off the band’s third LP, “Fire and the Thud” has got a slow-dance groove that catches fire with a shredding solo. This one burns in epic in under 4 minutes.

#19 Suck It and See

19 days until the new Arctic Monkeys CD “AM” is released. Coming it at #19 is the title track off SUCK IT AND SEE, a very purple and poetic pop song. Enjoy!

#20 Library Pictures

The countdown to AM begins now.

#20 – “Library Pictures” off SUCK IT AND SEE

When a friend asked me to play the best song on SUCK IT AND SEE, I immediately put on “Library Pictures.” Is it the best, is it my favorite? Not necessarily. But it is certainly the most impressive, the most imaginative, and besides we only had about 135 seconds before the bar closed.
