Mmkay…here’s the premise…I’m going to write about a song every post, hopefully with the mp3 streaming so I can share some good music and how it affects me and blah blah blah. Hopefully it’ll turn out well so here goes.

First song of the blog!

Mardy Bum by Arctic Monkeys

I first heard this song while working in Hollister in Knoxville. It was one of the few songs on the playlist at the store that was actually quite decent, and I could sing along with. One of the traits that i love in music, being able to sing along. Anyhoos, I liked it pretty much immediately and since I heard it almost constantly (those of you who’ve worked in a store like Hollister know what I’m talking about) it grew on me quickly. The chilled and relaxed feel of the guitar riffs fit into the Hollister vibe, but something about the British accent combined with the unique and captivating lyrics create the basis for an awesome song that’s catchy and relaxing which to me is a recipe for an instant favorite. So enjoy.

(Here are the lyrics)

Well now then Mardy Bum
I’ve seen your frown
And it’s like looking down the barrel of a gun
And it goes off
And out come all these words
Oh there’s a very pleasant side to you
A side I much prefer
It’s one that laughs and jokes around
Remember cuddles in the kitchen
Yeah, to get things off the ground
And it was up, up and away
Oh, but it’s right hard to remember
That on a day like today when you’re all argumentative
And you’ve got the face on

Well now then Mardy Bum
Oh I’m in trouble again, aren’t I
I thought as much
Cause you turned over there
Pulling that silent disappointment face
The one that I can’t bear

Why can’t we just laugh and joke around
Remember cuddles in the kitchen
Yeah, to get things off the ground
And it was up, up and away
Oh, but it’s right hard to remember
That on a day like today when you’re all argumentative
And you’ve got the face on

And yeah I’m sorry I was late
but I missed the train
And then the traffic was a state
And I can’t be arsed to carry on in this debate
That reoccurs, oh when you say I don’t care
but of course I do, yet I clearly do!

So laugh and joke around
Remember cuddles in the kitchen
Yeah, to get things off the ground
And it was up, up and away
Oh, but it’s right hard to remember
That on a day like today when you’re all argumentative
And you’ve got the face on
