10 Times Alex Turner Was A Song-Writing God

Listening to the Arctic Monkeys is like listening to poetry. With music. Musical poetry.

1. Do I Wanna Know?

Ever thought of calling when you’ve had a few?
‘Cause I always do

2. One For The Road

I feel like I’ve been in here before
I’ve been wondering whether later when you tell everybody to go,
Will you pour me one for the road?

3. Mardy Bum

Well now then Mardy Bum
Oh I’m in trouble again, aren’t I?
I thought as much

Pulling that silent disappointment face
The one that I can’t bear

4. I Wanna Be Yours

And let me be the portable heater that you’ll get cold without

5. When The Sun Goes Down

You sexy little swine
Hoping they’re looking for you
Sure you’ll be rummaging through

7. 505
