The Arctic Monkeys' top hits, which will be a good introduction to the band
Arctic Monkeys - a phenomenon in the modern rock industry. This is a band that managed to revive the public's interest in indie and psychedelic rock, and how! Today they are idols of millions of modern listeners from all over the world, and even inveterate music lovers who grew up on music classical bands like Led Zeppelin or Pink Floyd, enjoy listening to tracks "Arctic Monkeys. (that's how the band's name is translated).
The band formed in 2002, in Sheffield, United Kingdom. At the time of its creation, the members were still very teenagers! But with the release of the first album it became clear to everyone that this is not just another "passé" band: the guys showed that they have their own style and view on rock, and that they have a story to tell even in today's realities. The lyrics of their songs are imbued with deep lyricism and sadness: such topics as difficult relationships, loneliness, gradual aging... Their music has life, it's rhythmic and not empty at the same time. For this reason the band was quickly accepted both at home and in other countries.
Today at Arctic Monkeys truly a big name: billions of listens, millions of views on music videos... The band is still afloat, and is still delighting fans with new music! But even despite this - it still remains "a mystery." For some listeners. Today we've put together some of the Arctic Monkeys' greatest hits, and listening to them will be a great way to meet with the work of this splendidly - rarely - worthy 21st-century band!
"Do I Wanna Know?"
"Do I Wanna Know?" shows the band's signature style in the best way possible. It can be listened to more than once or twice - I don't think it can get boring. And yes: it's the best track to get acquainted with Arctic Monkeys, and not only we think so, but the majority of fans as well.
The instrumental parts are easily recognizable and perfectly unique. Amazing composition of the 21st century!
"R U Mine?"
A song that rightly encompasses all facets of rock and rollFrom the rumbling riff and powerful drums to the unobtrusive bassline and organic rhythm... A brilliant track that's likely to make you shake your head to the beat!
Shortly after graduation. "R U Mine?" became their highest-rated single in the U.K., even though it was only released digitally. The song was also good enough to grace a number of video games (including Forza Horizon).
It really is. nice songthat can take you to places from another world...
"My dear, what did you expect?
Maybe I still adore you,
When your arms are wrapped around my neck...
Or adored on his last visit."
"I Wanna Be Yours"
"I Wanna Be Yours" was the jewel of "AM," an album that showcased a different character of the band. It is one of the best releases of 2013, thanks in part to the myriad of different musical styles: it is an accelerated mix of hard rock, soul, funk, hip-hop and blues.
Closing composition perfect for bringing the listener to the end of the record, while also making you want to listen to it again: "I Wanna Be Yours" is filled with heartache and a mesmerizing rhythm that takes your mind for 3 minutes, taking you into a train of thought...
This song is full of energy and quite possibly lyrically undervalued.
"Drowned in a trivial crisis of growing up.
Everything is sucked into the black hole one by one,
The present is not as bright as the past..."
Here phenomenal lyrics - a lot of meaning, but not too hidden. Frontman Alex Turner really shows all his poetic talent.
Structurally, it is one of the most difficult and interesting songs of the band.
Lyrically, the track demonstrates the hero's contempt for the so-called "mind games.", feminine manipulation, when girls cry. It is not for nothing that the title of the song refers to mascara.
"Your classes consist of oddities,
Tangled and messy.
And I hate this game..."
"I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor"
Not only the beat is infectious, but also the lyrics, and even after all these years "I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor" remains favorite Among fans! Definitely one of the best Arctic Monkeys songs.
And lastly, a few more great compositionswhich are definitely worthy of attention.
