Music Monday: Arabella (Arctic Monkeys)

Music Monday is hosted by Drew over at The Tattooed Book Geek.

I was playing AM in the car the other day and I literally played this song over and over again. I love the contrast between the hip hop beat and the heavy guitar riff that eventually kicks in. Everything about this song is sexy, from the drums, the bass to the guitars and Alex Turner’s vocal. I may not like Alex Turner himself that much, but man, he has the most effortless sexy voice. I just don’t need to see him. Ha!

I remember when I Bet You Look Good On the Dancefloor came out so well. It had so much energy, I loved it. I have liked Arctic Monkeys ever since, but they have never been a favourite band. But the songs from AM started dropping and as an album, AM is a masterpiece in my humble opinion. It’s one sexy motherf**ker of an album.

Arabella’s got some interstellar-gator skin boots
And a helter skelter ’round her little finger and I ride it endlessly
She’s got a Barbarella silver swimsuit
And when she needs to shelter from reality she takes a dip in my daydreams
My days end best when this sunset gets itself
Behind that little lady sitting on the passenger side
It’s much less picturesque without her catching the light
The horizon tries but it’s just not as kind on the eyes
As Arabella
As Arabella
Just might have tapped into your mind and soul
You can’t be sure
Arabella’s got a seventies head
But she’s a modern lover
It’s an exploration, she’s made of outer space
And her lips are like the galaxy’s edge
And her kiss the colour of a constellation falling into place
My days end best when this sunset gets itself
Behind that little lady sitting on the passenger side
It’s much less picturesque without her catching the light
The horizon tries but it’s just not as kind on the eyes
As Arabella
As Arabella
Just might have tapped into your mind and soul
You can’t be sure
That’s magic in a cheetah print coat
Just a slip underneath it I hope
Asking if I can have one of those
Organic cigarettes that she smokes
Wraps her lips round the Mexican coke
Makes you wish that you were the bottle
Takes a sip of your soul and it sounds like…
Just might have tapped into your mind and soul
You can’t be sure
