Song Of The Day – Black Treacle


Every time I play the Arctic Monkeys’ vinyls, I wonder where is the sticker label with the strong warning saying ” All Arctic Monkeys’ songs should be played on vinyls, cos that’s how they are meant to be heard!”


How can any opening tracks be as astsounding as “She’s Thunderstorms”? The vinyl keeps spinning giving out a handful of that analogue vitamins one will need for the day.

Then the second track “Black Treacle” comes in, and I don’t believe there are any song writers since the 21st century could get any closer to Alex Turner’s poetic genuine talents , the peak of the song is when he sang the below impeccable lyrics and the guitar riffs kicks in, OMG, the riffs with that rich vintage analogue stream of waves injects through my chin and right into my heart like current.

Now it’s getting dark and the sky looks sticky/ More like black treacle than tar/

Black treacle/ Somebody told the stars you’re not coming out tonight /

and so they find a place to hide


As the 3rd track, most vintage heavy rock and roll track, “Brick by Brick” bangs in and wakes my weary soul, the strong drumbeats from the vinyl is so soothing comforts via my throat to my stomach filling all the voids. “The Hellcat Spangled Shalalala” is another track that dissolves my soul with  such poetic romanticism. The first 4 tracks of the album are almost perfect and I could keep repeating them 4 tracks for the rest of the day.


All tracks are great in the album, just my usual habit to flip it to Side B after listening the first 4 tracks in the A side and play there from the 8th track”Reckless Serenade” to the last track ” That’s where you’re Wrong”.

After playing the last track of the LP, I felt starving and toast a few soft bread I bought from Ikea, served on the “Slice & Serve” by JosephJoseph. It’s the greatest relaxing Sunday afternoon I’ve had for the past 3 months from endless traveling and work.

    First of all I would like to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing. I’ve had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Cheers!|掲示板}

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appeal. I must say you’ve done a very good job with this. In addition, the blog loads super quick for me on Firefox. Exceptional Blog!
