Night Music: Arctic Monkeys, “I Bet You Look Good On The Dance Floor”

Everclear put me in mind of the Arctic Monkeys for some reason, though I wouldn’t claim this is a great song. But it does the job, it rocks and rolls, shouts loudly and gets it out in a fairly small but energetic amount of time. I’ve always thought that the Monkeys’ vocalist often sounds just a bit removed from the song, a bit more explaining where maybe there should be expression, but it doesn’t matter on this one. I resisted, don’t believe the hype and all, but I lost and bought the record.

  1. Your link is broken but I know the song. In fact I’ve seen the band several times and think they’re great.

  2. Thanks. Link is working now. Going from Embed to Link seems to have made Embed work. Weird.

    When this song came out I had many friends who became fans because their teens took them to AM shows. That doesn’t enhance street cred, but I don’t consider it a knock on the band. They got the kids, that’s what counts.
