Reseñando Canciones: Arctic Monkeys
(Especial Tour Latinoamérica 2014)

¡Arctic Monkeys! ¡Qué banda! También, da la casualidad, la conocí gracias a una amiga y van a venir a la Argentina. Lamentablemente, esta banda últimamente es de mis favoritas y no voy a poder ir a verlos por el precio de la entrada, así que me quedo escuchándolos en mi computadora y trato de imaginar lo que se sentiría estar ahí. 
Su música me hace sentir tantas cosas diferentes y sus letras son simples, pero son tan profundas que no puedo dejar de escucharlas. Además, la voz de Alex Turner, el cantante, es magnífica e inexplicable. Espero que les guste.




Biografía:
Arctic Monkeys es una banda de indie rock formada en Sheffield, Reino Unido. El grupo está compuesto por el guitarrista principal y vocalista Alex Turner, el guitarrista Jamie Cook, el baterista Matt Helders y Nick O'Malley en el bajo, puesto ocupado anteriormente por Andy Nicholson. Su primer álbum, Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not, fue galardonado en 2007 como el «mejor álbum británico». El segundo álbum de la banda, Favourite Worst Nightmare, se lanzó el 23 de abril de 2007 y vendió más de 225 000 copias en su primera semana de lanzamiento, además de ser nominado para el Mercury Prize de 2007. La banda también ganó los premios a mejor banda británica y mejor álbum británico en los Brit
Awards de 2008 y 2014.

Arctic Monkeys son generalmente considerados parte de la escena post punk revival, junto a bandas como Franz Ferdinand, Kaiser Chiefs y Bloc Party. Comenzaron a ser conocidos a través de maquetas hechas por sus seguidores y distribuidas por internet. Son considerados como uno de los primeros eventos que alcanzó la atención pública vía Internet, por lo que se les catalogó como «la banda que pudo haber cambiado el mercado de la música».





Top 5 de Canciones:

1) Do I Wanna Know
Have you got colour in your cheeks? 
Do you ever get that fear that you can’t shift the tide 

that sticks around like summat’s in your teeth? 
Hide some aces up your sleeve 
Have you no idea that you’re in deep? 
I dreamt about you nearly every night this week 
How many secrets can you keep? 
Cause there’s this tune I’ve found that makes me think of you somehow 
And I play it on repeat until I fall asleep 
Spilling drinks on my settee 

(Do I wanna know?) 
If this feeling flows both ways 
(It’s hard to see you go) 
I’m sorta hoping that you’d stay 
(Baby we both know) 
That the nights were mainly made for saying things

 that you can’t say tomorrow day 

Crawling back to you 
Ever thought of calling when you’ve had a few? 
Cause I always do 
Well baby I’m too busy being yours to fall for somebody new 
Now I’ve thought it through 
Crawling back to you 

So have you got the guts? 
Been wondering if your heart’s still open, 

and if so I wanna know what time it shuts 
Simmer down and pucker up 
I’m sorry to interrupt 
It’s just I’m constantly on the cusp of trying to kiss you 
But I dunno if you feel the same as I do 
We could be together if you wanted to 

(Do I wanna know?) 
If this feeling flows both ways 
(It’s hard to see you go) 
I’m sorta hoping that you’d stay 
(Baby we both know) 
That the nights were mainly made for saying things 

that you can’t say tomorrow day 

Crawling back to you 
Ever thought of calling when 
(You’ve had a few) 
Darling when you’ve had a few 
(Cause I always do) 
Cause I always do 
(Well baby I’m too) 
Way too busy being yours to fall for somebody new 
Now I’ve thought it through 
Crawling back to you 

(Do I wanna know?) 
If this feeling flows both ways 
(It’s hard to see you go) 
I’m sorta hoping that you’d stay 
(Baby we both know) 
That the nights were mainly made for saying things 

that you can’t say tomorrow day 

(Do I wanna know?) 
Too busy being yours to fall 
(Hard to see you go) 
Ever thought of calling darling? 
(Do I wanna know?) 
Do you want me crawling back to you?


2) Reckless Serenade

Reckless Serenade Live ¡Hermosa Canción!


Topless models doing semaphore 

Wave their flags as she walks by 
And get ignored 
Illuminations on a rainy day 
When she walks her footsteps sing a reckless serenade 



I've been trying to figure out exactly what it is I need 
Called up to listen to the voice of reason 
And got the answering machine 



The type of kisses where teeth collide 
When she laughs, the heavens hum a stun-gun lullaby 
Those twinkling vixens with the shining spiral eyes 
Their hypnosis goes unnoticed when she's walking by 



I've been trying to figure out exactly what it is I need 
Called up to listen to the voice of reason 
And got his answering machine 
I left my message, but did he fuck get back to me 
And now I'm stuck, still wondering how it's meant to be 
Singing a reckless serenade 
Reckless serenade 
Reckless serenade 
Reckless serenade 



Reckless serenade 
Reckless serenade 
Reckless serenade


3) Why'd you only call me when you are high?


The mirror's image 
tells me it's home time 
But I'm not finished 
'Cause you're not by my side 

And as I arrived I thought I saw you leaving 
carrying your shoes 
decided that once again I was just dreaming 
of bumping into you 

Now its three in the morning 
and I'm trying to change your mind 
left you multiple missed calls 
and to my message, you repy 

Why'd you only call me when you're high? 
High, Why'd you only call me when you're high? 

Somewhere darker 
talking the same shite 
I need a partner 
Well, are you out tonight? 
gets harder and harder to get you to listen 
'more i get through the gears 
incapable of making alright decisons 
and having bad ideas 

Now its three in the morning 
and I'm trying to change your mind 
left you multiple missed calls 
and to my message you repy 

Why'd you only call me when you're high? 
High, Why'd you only call me when you're high? 

and I can't see you here, wondering where am I? 
sorta feels like i'm running out of time 
I haven't found what i was hoping to find 

You said you gotta be up in the morning 
gonna have an early night 
then you started to bore me 
baby why'd you only call me when you're high?

4) A Certain Romance
Well oh they might wear classic Reeboks 
Or knackered Converse 
Or tracky bottoms tucked in socks 
But all of that´s what the point is not 
The point´s that there isn´t no romance around there 

And there´s the truth that they can´t see 
They´d probably like to throw a punch at me 
And if you could only see them, then you would agree 
Agree that there isn´t no romance around there 

it´s a funny thing you know 
We´ll tell them if you like 
We´ll tell them all tonight 
They´ll never listen 
Cause their minds are made up 
And course it´s all okay to carry on that way 

Over there there´s broken bones 
There´s only music, so that there´s new ringtones 
And it doesn´t take no Sherlock Holmes 
To see it´s a little different around here 

Don´t get me wrong though there´s boys in bands 
And kids who like to scrap with pool cues in their hands 
And just cause he´s had a couple of cans 
He thinks it´s alright to act like a dickhead 

Well over there there´s friends of mine 
What can I say, I´ve known them for a long long time 
And they might overstep the line 
But you just cannot get angry in the same way
5) Flourescent Adolescent


You used to get it in your fishnets 
Now you only get it in your night dress 
Discarded all the naughty nights for niceness 
Landed in a very common crisis 
Everything´s in order in a black hole 
Nothing seems as pretty as the past though 
That Bloody Mary´s lacking a Tabasco 
Remember when he used to be a rascal? 

Oh that boy´s a slag 
The best you ever had 
The best you ever had 
Is just a memory and those dreams 
Not as daft as they seem 
Not as daft as they seem 
My love when you dream them up... 

Flicking through a little book of sex tips 
Remember when the boys were all electric? 
Now when she tells she´s gonna get it 
I´m guessing that she´d rather just forget i 
Clinging to not getting sentimental 
Said she wasn´t going but she went still 
Likes her gentlemen to not be gentle 
Was it a megadobber or a betting pencil? 

Oh that boy´s a slag 
The best you ever had 
The best you ever had 
Is just a memory and those dreams 
Weren´t as daft as they seem 
Not as daft as they seem 
My love when you dream them up 
Oh, where did you go? 
Where did you go? 
Where did you go? Woah. 

Falling about 
You took a left off Last Laugh Lane 
You just sounded it out 
You´re not coming back again. 

Falling about 
You took a left off Last Laugh Lane 
You just sounded it out 
You´re not coming back again. 

You used to get it in your fishnets 
Now you only get it in your night dress 
Started all the naughty nights with niceness 
Landed in a very common crisis 
Everything´s in order in a black hole 
Everything was pretty in the past though 
That Bloody Mary´s lacking in tabasco 
Remember when he used to be a rascal?

Wow...eso fue realmente difícil...solamente 5 canciones. Fue prácticamente una tortura, pero pude lograrlo, me gustan muchas. Mis favoritas son Reckless Serenade y Certain Romance, no obstante la que más escucho es Do I Wanna Know? porque es linda para bailar.
Sin embargo, si les gusta ustedes se fijan y escuchan otras canciones. Les dejo este link para que pasen si les gusta la banda. Miles de saludos. (sino hagan click en la imagen)
