Arctic Monkeys: Top 20 Tracks (2005-2013)

Είναι η μπάντα που σημάδεψε (και ακόμα σημαδεύει για κάποιους) την εφηβεία όλων εμάς της γενιάς του '90. Είναι η μοναδική βρετανική μπάντα των 00's που άντεξε την πτώση του indie rock στην αλλαγή της δεκαετίας και συνεχίζει με ακόμα μεγαλύτερη επιτυχία. Είναι η δεύτερη μπάντα (μετά τους Beatles) που έχει 5 συνεχόμενα Nο.1 albums από την πρώτη εβδομάδα κυκλοφορίας στη Βρετανία. Είναι από τις ελάχιστες περιπτώσεις τεράστιων ονομάτων που ξεπήδησαν μετά το 2000 και θα γνωρίζουν τα παιδιά μας. Είναι η δική μας "μεγάλη μπάντα" που απολαμβάνουμε σε πραγματικό χρόνο, μεγαλώνουμε μαζί της και σημαδεύει τις στιγμές μας. Αγαπάμε τους Arctic Monkeys γιατί εκτός από απίστευτη μουσική, μας χαρίζουν το συναίσθημα του να είσαι εκεί όταν κάτι σπουδαίο γεννιέται. Από όλα τα albums, τα EPs, τα singles και τα b-sides που έχουν κυκλοφορήσει στα πρώτα 8 χρόνια της καριέρας τους (2005-2013), αυτά είναι τα 20 κομμάτια που ξεχωρίζει το Indiego Sound. Είναι τα κομμάτια που μπορείτε να τρίψετε άνετα στη μούρη του μπαμπά την επόμενη φορά που θα σας μιλήσει για τους Deep Purple.

20. No Buses

But when you're short of some, it's nowhere to be found"

19. Despair In The Departure Lounge

In a people carrier
There might be buildings and pretty things to see like that
But architecture won't do"

You sexy little swine"

Won't crack or compromise
Your do-rights or individes
Will never unhinge us"

That the nights were mainly made
For saying things that you can't say
Tomorrow day"

13. Crying Lightning
(Humbug , LP , 2009)
"The next time that I caught my own reflection
It was on it's way to meet you
Thinking of excuses to postpone
You never look like yourself from the side
But your profile did not hide
The fact you knew I was approaching your throne"

12. 505
(Favourite Worst Nightmare , LP , 2007)
"But I crumble completely when you cry,
It seems like once again you've had to greet me with goodbye"

11. R U Mine?

"And I go crazy 'cause here isn't where I wanna be
And satisfaction feels like a distant memory

10. From The Ritz To The Rubble

This town's a different town to what it was last night
You couldn't have done that on a Sunday"

Who'd want to be men of the people
When there's people like you?"

Oh you know nothing
Yeah but I'll still take you home"

We'll see you later, innovator"

'Cos then you don't have to see,
What you've done"

5. Mardy Bum
(Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not , LP , 2006)
"Oh there's a very pleasant side to you
A side I much prefer
It's one that laughs and jokes around"

4. Fluorescent Adolescent
(Favourite Worst Nightmare , LP , 2007)
"Discarded all the naughty nights for niceness
Landed in a very common crisis
Everything's in order in a black hole
Nothing seems as pretty as the past though"

3. When The Sun Goes Down
(Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not , LP , 2006)
"They said it changes when the sun goes down
Around here"

2. I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor
(Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not , LP , 2006)
"I wish you'd stop ignoring me because it's sending me to despair,
Without a sound yeah you're calling me and I don't think it's very fair"

1. A Certain Romance
(Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not , LP , 2006)
"Well oh they might wear classic Reeboks
Or knackered Converse
Or tracky bottoms stucked in socks
But all of that's what the point is not
The point's that there is no romance around there"
