This Tuesday’s Tune: “Fluorescent Adolescent” by Arctic Monkeys
‘Fluorescent Adolescent’ is one of those songs that hides darkness under a peppy tune. The song talks of boredom, getting older, settling down and looking back towards a more exciting time.
“The best you ever had
Is just a memory and those dreams
Not as daft as they seem
My love when you dream them up…”
I never get tired of listening to this. One of the Arctic Monkeys best. The video is weird though. It’s kind of violent for one and what have clowns got to do with anything?
