Arctic Monkeys - Fluorescent Adolescent

Arctic Monkeys - 'Fluorescent Adolescent' (2007)


"Oh that boy's a slag / The best you ever had."

Coming off their second album, Favourite Worst Nightmare, Fluorescent Adolescent proved that Alex Turner’s ability to combine observational wit with an appealing melody was not a fluke. 

It was, however, the first track where Turner relinquished the position of sole lyricist, creating the song alongside then girlfriend Johanna Bennett while playing a word game on holiday.
