A lot of my friends have been telling me how great this band was and yet it is only that I actually got to listen to one of their songs. Frankly, at first, I didn’t pay attention because I got the impression that their music is similar to Red Hot Chili Peppers but I’ve come to apprecate them now.
About the Song:
This song is from Artic Monkeys’ latest album, AM, which went out late last year.
I like the song because I can relate to it as a person who harbors a seemingly hopeless one-sided love.
“Do I wanna know if this feeling flows both ways?”
This part calls to me because as a hopeless romantic and a one-sided lover, we long and hope that whatever we feel for the person can be reciprocated. Or, in the case of those who just broke up and are still holding on, they long to know if the love still lives in the heart of the other person. But do we really wanna know? I don’t because I have a deep for rejection. We may know that a love is one-sided or hopeless but to actually confirm that it is really and utterly one-sided or hopeless brings on a different and more severe pain. Well, the truth hurts.
Arctic Monkeys is a four-member English Indie rock band from High Green, Sheffield.
