Pussyfooting setting Sun
Make a wish that weighs a tonne
There are no handles for you to hold
And no understanding where it goes

Jealousy in Technicolor
Fear by name than love by numbers
Street lamp amber wanderlust
Powder in a blunderbus

She looks as if she's blowing a kiss at me
And suddenly the sky is a scissor
Sitting on the floor with a tambourine
Crushing up a bundle of love
Don't take it so personally
You're not the only one
That time's got it in for, honey
That's where you're wrong

All the old flames fastened on
Make a wish that weighs a tonne
There are no handles you can hold
And no understanding where it goes

She looks as if she's blowing a kiss at me
And suddenly the sky is a scissor
Sitting on the floor with a tambourine
Crushing up a bundle of love
Don't take it so personally
You're not the only one
That time's got it in for, honey
That's where you're wrong
That's where you're wrong
That's where you're wrong
Oh, oh

I have this album and like it but whenever this song comes on I think it's Bring On the Dancing Horses so hey I'm not alone.
reminds me of the Killers "All these things that I've done"
Just introduced Radio Paradise to this amazing girl that I've just met in Sagres.
Here´s the best radio station.
To you Mary Love

Huh , cool ..then!

comment before I posted!
~~~Aloha
Upon this tune hitting my ears me thinketh ….It's safe to say that the guys in Artic Monkey listened to a bit of Echo and the Bunnymen!

no need to comment on my comment because " that's where  I'm right

Arctic Echo and the Monkeymen - maybe the two bands merged like franz ferdinand and Sparks did for a while (FFS)
 


I've just listened to a couple of tracks from that effort. I was a bit of a fan of Sparks in the early '70's and even saw them live twice. This newish collaboration is my definition of junk. Sorry, fans, but I don't get the attraction.

On the other hand, I'd like to hear the other collaboration idea...

Oh dear. You children just had to go there. The white coveralls thing. Well, we all know who wore them best on tour. That great reader, editor, researcher of... stuff. Retirement life sure ain't what it's cracked up to be.

A most interesting album title. 

All you Stanley Kubrick fans: this was one of the two lewd (what else?) graffiti thought balloons scrawled on the wall of the trashed apartment building lobby where Alex confronts his waiting droogie pals in A Clockwork Orange.
Namely, Suck It and See. And: If it moves, kiss it.

Yeah, I'm a Kubrick fan. Who else might make the connection?

I lean towards your husband's thinking (esp. post-reunion EatB) over Stone Roses...
Obvious influences, but I'd recognise the Monkeys anywhere.  7 at least from here.

Definitely a Stone Roses vibe.
love that Bill plays a lot of Arctic Monkey's, shows how clued in he is.

 
most excellent monkey music : )

Echo called and wants you to sue those bastards for him. Back to the gaw-damned Stone Age! 

Seriously: it's not as if Ian McCulloch and Will Sergeant patented the band's sound. And if you can't distinguish an Arctic Monkeys song from an ETB one, you're not listening that closely. 
Certainly Echo-esque. Whoa.
Great band .. especially live - would love to hear more songs on RP...

Those guitars just scream...well done.   The only other time I have heard that done so well is Airbag, by Radiohead.

Everybody in my church loves this song...

Relatively new songs that Bill likes usually get a few plays per week.
Great version of "Come Together" they did for the Olympic opening ceremony.

Just saw these guys open for the Black Keys.  I was really excited to see them and took my seat right before they started.  The were great but so friggin loud I had to leave the pavilion after a couple of songs.  I wish they wouldn't out do the band with loudness.  If they sucked, I could see it just to get people's attention.  But they are great.  Do they really have to do that?  The Black keys weren't that loud.


This song rocks...  it is soooo cool...

 
All that and shades of Stone Roses?


Does anyone else picture these guys playing this tune...   ?
New Order vs Echo and the Bunnymen Death Match! (I still like it)
While good - this is such a BLATANT Echo & The Bunnymen rip off, I can't get beyond it, every time I hear the song.  There are 20 Bunnymen tunes I'd play over this any day.  I suppose the younger generation has never heard of The Bunnymen so think this sounds great?!....

When I first heard this line I thought they sang "sizzle" and not "scissor".  I just now looked it up.  I really loved my first impression of the line - I was going to hail it as one of the great all time song verses.   Oh well. 
Bill - Love the improved website and you are playing some terrific music this evening!  Thank You!!

This song is soooo very very groovy...  love it...


 
These guys continually amaze and surprise me...quite a startlingly bright guitar sound they have, and the vocal stylings are brilliant, too!
I think they have a few more songs...

That's what I noticed too!

Gotta love that album title. Aside from its general, direct and crude reference, and whatever the Monkeys want it to impart, all you film trivia (specifically, Kubrick) fans, might like to know that this is one of two graffiti phrases on a wall of the prison-like housing project where Alex confronts his Droogie friends before they go out rapin' and beatin'. The other one: If it moves, kiss it. 
The first song of these guys I have liked since the first 2 albums that were so massive they made my disappointment in the 3rd and 4th album equally so.  This one is a definite exception though even if I did think it was a bit more republic tigers than arctic monkeys.

This band reminds me of 80's brit bands like Bunnymen or like Hoodoo Gurus.  What flavor do you think this lollipop is?



Volume is wayyyy up...  everybody in my hotel room be dancing...  love this song...

It does have that sound, but it is also fresh and original enough...  I really, really like this song...

I wouldn't mind this band if the singer's voice didn't sound so affected.
Also, it's tough to beat an album title like that. Fyi trivia: that was graffiti on the wall in a scene in A Clockwork Orange. 
My next favorite new band! Smokin'!  I don't what the f an arctic monkey is — I thought they were all in D.C. — but they're going to my iPod asap! Thanks, Bill.
