Walking up to me expecting walking up to me
Expecting words it happens all the time
Present company accept it present company
Except the worst it happens every night

Ah aaaaah present company
Excluded every time
Ah aaaaaah present company
The best that you can find

Talking like a jerk
Except you are an actual jerk
And living proof that sometimes friends are mean

Present company expect it present company
Just laugh it off it's better than it seems

Ah aaaaaah present company
Excluded in every way
Ah aaaaaah present company
Makes me wanna stay

Killing it with close inspecting
Killing it can only make it worse
It sort of makes it breed
Present company accepting
Presently we all expect the worst
Works just like a need

Ah aaaaah present company
Excluded in the night
Ah aaaaah present company
Included in the fight

Ah aaaaaaaah, ah aaaaaaaah, aaaaaah
Ah aaaaaaah

Don't you want me to wake up?
Then give me just a bit of your time
Arguments are made from make outs
So give it just a little more time

We've got to bring our results
I wanna play it 'til the time comes
But there's a string of divorces
You go and throw your little hands up

I miss the way the night comes
With friends who always make it feel good
This basement has a cold glow
Though it's better than a bunch of others

So go and dance yourself clean ..ooow
Go and dance yourself clean yeah
You're throwing marks into pieces
Baby, they're arguments, the pieces

It's your show [x4]

Work a little bit ......?

Every night's a different story
It's a thirty car pile-up with you
Everybody's getting younger
It's the end of an era, it's true

And you go
(Stop, stop, stop, stop)

Break(?) me into bigger pieces
So some of me is home with you
Wait until the weekend
And we can make our bad dreams come true

And it's ago yeah, it's ago
And if we wait until the weekend
We can miss the best things to do, oh

Go and dance yourself clean
Go and dance yourself clean
You're throwing marks into pieces
Maybe they're arguments the pieces

Oh

We should try a little harder
In the tedious march of the few
Every day's a different warning
There's a part of me hoping it's true

The genius LCD is lost on the RP crowd, too bad...
I've rated this an 8 but don't recall ever hearing it on RP. Hmm. Well anyway, here's where I first heard it:

RIP JC
 
great track!  great band!  great label!
I notice the low ratings on this one, but this is a good example for why I listen, every now and then Bill throws me a curveball.
{#Bananajam} I'm rocking to this one. Very fun. 
I've been cured of Lack of Bop!  Wooo Hoooooo
hell yes!


I kinda like this{#Eh}
It's got most of the elements I normally dislike.......
Is there a hotline I can call to help me?

Funny you should ask that. Muppets + LCD Soundsystem - Dance Yrself Clean (It's just LCD Soundsystem audio overlaid on Muppets video, but it fits really well).

 
The video mash up makes it that much more awesome.

I liked it.
Sheez, is this ever going to end. I kinda liked it at first. Then it started in with the 80s video game sound effects and then it just decided it was going to go on forever. Definitely a sucko-barfo song now.
Ready for the next song.
I love the power of the bridge and the second half of the song.  It's stripped down to basic beat and passionate vocals.  Also love "I Can Change" off this album.  Fantastic pure techno-pop.
I understand why this song is polarizing (seriously, look at the distribution of the user ratings — it's really love or hate), but it completely hits me where it counts.

Sure, I listen to a lot of "serious" music, but there's no denying the energy in this tune.  It just makes me want to crank the volume every time.  You have to listen to it on a powerful system to really feel it, especially late in the song when the bass is sliding around like a California earthquake.  I've probably played this song and album more than any other music I've purchased this year.

As someone who grew up listening to this type of music the first time it came around (think 1978-1982), I think LCD Soundsystem is the real deal.  Sure they borrow from the past, but they also chart their own path.  All 3 of their albums are worthwhile and I like Sounds of Silver best.  They're playing the Hollywood Bowl later this year — that should be one big party.
Holy sh*t I hate this. This is what happened when Schroeder grew up, kept playing his toy piano, and started taking E.

...so far this is my Summer 2010 song. Hard not to dance on the train home when I've got this drowning out all the vanilla pop rock spilling out other people's earphones. I wish it left me feeling more clean.

....................................
It's kinda boring until the sort-of cheap-sounding video-game keyboard kicks in. Then it gets really boring. Just MHO.
The jerk reference in the lyrics reminds me of what a friend frequently said in college, "Some people act like jerks.  Some people are jerks. For example, Pete Rose, IS a jerk."  He never said it any other way. 

Bitchin cowbell, BTW

dull / generic spoken word against a bland beat. and then it turned into a techno nightmare.
I was listening to this earlier. I agree when you say too long , but still truly awesome. Not down some people's street, but still good music.  
A good 3 minutes too long.
Don't care so much for the lackadaisical first quarter of the song, but the latter part is typical LCD fun times!

Are you kidding??

I LOVE THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This sounds like something that would appeal to the tight pants ironic moustache crowd, so I'm highly prejudiced against it.  Also never loved LCD Soundsystem.  This is kinda alright though, I gotta say...
This is what my voice sounds like when I DON'T sing in the shower...  Not the kind of song I'd listen to if I wanted to relax and Zen-out, but it does have a catchy beat. IMO, that's all it has going for it.
Most appropriate for large sound systems with plenty of bass. Hooooolyyyyyyy.

Not really appropriate for office speakers.  
So far, this thread is either "I have monkeys in my head, and I speak for them when I say we love this" or "AACK! Kill it with fire!!!"

Hence the 5.7 rating.

As for me, there's only 2 LCDS songs I get into, and this isn't one of them. But I don't hate hate hate it either. So, I'll just help it maintain the 5.7 with a 5 of my own.

Fresh Air recently had a story about James Murphy (re)introducing dance/pop into Indy rock.  Wasn't sure I'd heard LCD Soundsystem before.  Now I have and am very glad for their contributions.
 
I heard that too.  Interesting guy, somewhat odd, but that's not surprising.  I don't think I'd give his tunes a second listen if I hadn't heard him talking about them.

Oh, and definitely tooooo loooooong.

This song really is great. It's not down a lot of folk's allies down here. But this song, really is amazing. 
Haven't listened to RP for about three months, and this is the first thing I hear when I return...and it just sucks.

See you in another three months.
Thomas Dolby called; he wants his synthesizer back.
Make it stop. Please.

Wow, I just dont know where to start.... try sitting quitely and dealing with yourself for awhile....and I mean with your own thoughts, you may find the monkees are trying to tell you something.

This is oddly appealing.
Interesting track, but could've done with being about two minutes shorter... Began to grind on me after what felt like five minutes. Vocals were deliberately far back in the mix, but (with certain specific exceptions COUGHradioheadCOUGH) I generally like to understand vocalists!

This track is the shizzle.
Quirky, interesting, but rather outstays its welcome. I wonder if that really is a Casio they use for the high notes theme?
Yep, I'm likin' it...
HORRIBLE  - Sucko Barfo vote for me.

This will be his last album with this band.  If I don't see them live, I will feel unfulfilled for the rest of my natural born life.

Just not doing it for me...
Pretty cool.. sounds quite alot like TVOTR.

Cover art on the disc seems like a nice nod Peter Gabriel in the '70s..

Lovin' it!
meh
Has kind of a David Byrne feel to it. Not bad.
Wooh! Again!

Did anyone else catch Terry Gross' interview with James Murphy on Fresh Air yesterday (National Public Radio show for those... what American doesn't know that show)?

He's a genuine person.  I just find it refreshing how he's not afraid of who he is.  Contrast to the interview with Paul Stanley - oh so hideous.

This has really grown on me quickly. 
you're killing me over here

ouch!
Is this ever gonna end? Geez.
My favorite band hands down.  James Murphy speaks my language.  His songs just don't get old, and I've been listening to them constantly since the release of each album. 

THANKS FOR PLAYING LCD SOUNDSYSTEM!

Correction.  You are the first to post a comment on this thread.  You have yet to comment on this track.  "erinks" appears to have been the first to comment on the track (depending on what was meant by "finally!").  

blech
Not my favorite song but I like how at the end the naked vocals contrast with the otherwise - strong techno sound.

Retracted. This song just sucks.

suhh-WEET!
I was a bit put off by the beginning...
and now what next? YACHT?
saw these Disco Spazz artists open up for Arcade Fire a few years ago. enjoyed it!
great! good choise!     {#Propeller}
...interesting, catchy...
Ok- now I have established my first "first" - hmmm - not bad, could do with a few more plays before I rate it higher. 
David Byrne with Vince Clark keyboards...

Cool.  Has potential. Yeah, definitely.

this band just appeared on my radar with a small ad in the New Yorker that i happened to notice which just said "LCD Soundsystem" three times... then i came upon a long article about them. 

finally!
