Las 15 mejores letras de los Arctic Monkeys

Tal y como publicábamos hace unos días, con el motivo del 15º aniversario de la formación de los Arctic Monkeys, el 15 de junio se celebra una nueva edición del ciclo Music Pills en la Sala Siroco de Madrid dedicado a la banda. Y en No Submarines tampoco queríamos dejar pasar la oportunidad de rendir homenaje al grupo de Sheffield.

Para ello, nos hemos fijado en uno de los elementos esenciales de esta banda: las letras de Alex Turner. Y es que el líder de los Arctic Monkeys se ha ganado a lo largo de estos quince años el reconocimiento de la crítica y de sus colegas de profesión por su habilidad con la pluma. Así que por su 15º aniversario, hemos seleccionado 15 canciones que, a nuestro entendimiento, son las mejores representaciones de su ingenio.


«She’s got a Barbarella silver swimsuit
And when she needs to shelter from reality
She takes a dip in my daydreams»

Red Light Indicates Doors Are Secured

«Didn’t you see she were gorgeous?
She was beyond belief
But this lad at the side drinking his Smirnoff Ice
Came and paid for her Tropical Reef»


«I smelt your scent on the seatbelt
And kept my shortcuts to myself»

Pretty Visitors

«And the bicycle wheels all struggle to move ‘round
In your muddy mind, blatantly caked and
Unwilling to wind uncooperative time
So he sits on the springs ‘til the muck goes dry»


«And I wonder, are you putting us under?
‘Cause we can’t take our eyes
Off the t-shirt and ties combination
Well, see you later, innovator»


«Stop and wait a sec
When you look at me like that, my darling, what did you expect?
I’d probably still adore you with your hands around my neck
Or I did last time I checked»

Piledriver Waltz

«You look like you’ve been for breakfast at the Heartbreak Hotel
And sat in the back booth by the pamphlets and the literature on how to lose»

She’s Thunderstorms

«When the heat starts growing horns

She’s thunderstorms»

R U Mine?

«I’m a puppet on a string
Tracy Island, time traveling diamond
cutter shaped heartaches
that’s come to find you, 4 in some velvet morning»

Only Ones Who Know

«And I hope you’re holding hands by New Year’s Eve
They made it far too easy to believe
That true romance can’t be achieved these days»

When The Sun Goes Down

«And what a scummy man
Just give him half a chance, I bet he’ll rob you if he can
Can see it in his eyes, yeah, that he’s got a nasty plan
I hope you’re not involved at all»

Knee Socks

«And you were sitting in the corner with the coats all piled high
And I thought you might be mine
In a small world on an exceptionally rainy Tuesday night
In the right place and time»

Suck It And See

«You’re rarer than a can of Dandelion and Burdock
And those other girls are just post-mix lemonade»

Too Much To Ask

«The smiles as she walked in the room
Have all turned into frowns
Am I too quick to assume
That the love is no longer in bloom?»

Teddy Picker

«D’you reckon that they do it for a joke?
D’you reckon that they make ‘em take an oath
That says that ‘We are defenders of any poser
Or professional pretender around’?»
