This is something “new” that I will be posting (possibly) daily for. Music To Your Ears is where I’ll post a song, new or old, may or may not be playing regularly on the radio airplay and tell you why I love it.
I love music a lot. I generally post a lot of movies and TV shows in this blog and most would assume I’m a movie lover and that is not completely wrong but I’m a music and book lover before I do of movies. I cannot live without music but I can live without movies.
The first post for Music To Your Ears goes to Arctic Monkeys’ “Do I Wanna Know?”
Do I wanna know? Yes, I do. I want to know when this song will stop looping in my head!
I heard this song a week or so ago via BBC Radio 1 and I just fell in love with it. The guitar chords is simple and repetitive, which gives this sexy, James Bond-ish vibe to it. It’s not hard or complicated. I have a feeling a number of talented people out there might be running to their guitars and start playing the song.
Anyway, you would think this song with such a melody would be about sex or something but no, it’s actually a lovely song. My take on the song is two friends who may hooked up once and this person felt more than where their relationship is currently at. It’s somewhat like an unrequited love song, isn’t it? The question is literally in the song: “Do I wanna know if the feeling floats both ways?”
Really, with that melody, I didn’t expect the song to be about that, or at least that’s how I took it. It took me by a real good surprise.
If you haven’t heard the song, press play on the YouTube video. You won’t regret it.
