Tune in Tuesday {6}: Fluorescent Adolescent

Tune in Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by Ginger at GReads that showcases music. It  helps bring attention to new and/or old songs or artists.

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?

Lyrics by: Alex Turner and Johanna Bennett.
