The Rich Girls Are Weeping

19 January 2006

There's absolutely only one reason to post about latest NME-blessed flash-in-the-pan "saviours of rock'n'roll," The Arctic Monkeys -- and that's when they cover Girls Aloud's "Love Machine." I ganked this off the Interschitzel, it was recorded live on the BBC's RadioOne. The Arctic Monkeys' interpretation of this er, classic cements the fact that they really are the most overrated band in the entire universe right now. So, I'm including the original, as a palate cleanser. (My suggestion: someone really needs to do this as a bluegrass cover, obvs.) But I digress -- long live Girls Aloud, the best prefab pop band around. And you can quote me on that.

Great site and you're right about GIRLS ALOUD - music can be light, fun and disposable also ... but in any case, great site, great taste in music. thanks

Lighten up - the original's awful and their cover isn't meant to break musical boundaries - just listen to the lyrics - the idea of these 4 northern blokes singing "we're gift wrapped kitty cats" had me laughing!
