Star Treatment
by Arctic Monkeys

I just wanted to be one of The Strokes
Now look at the mess you made me make
Hitchhiking with a monogrammed suitcase
Miles away from any half-useful imaginary highway
I'm a big name in deep space
Ask your mates but golden boy's in bad shape
I found out the hard way
That here ain't no place for dolls like you and me
Everybody's on a barge
Floating down the endless stream of great TV
1984, 2019

Maybe I was a little too wild in the 70s
Rocket-ship grease down the cracks of my knuckles
Karate bandana
Warp speed chic
Hair down to there
Impressive moustache
Love came in a bottle with a twist off cap
Let's all have a swig and do a hot lap

So who you gonna call?
The martini police
Baby, that isn't how they look tonight, oh no
It took the light forever to get to your eyes

I just wanted to be one of those ghosts
You thought that you could forget
And then I haunt you via the rear view mirror
On a long drive from the back seat
But it's alright 'cause you love me
And you recognize that it ain't how it should be
Your eyes are heavy and the weather's getting ugly
So pull over, I know the place
Don't you know an apparition is a cheap date?
What exactly is it you've been drinking these days?
Jukebox in the corner
Long hot summer
They've got a film up on the wall and it's dark enough to dance
What do you mean you've never seen Blade Runner?

Oh, maybe I was a little too wild in the 70s
Back down to earth with a lounge singer shimmer
Elevator down to my make believe residency
From the honeymoon suite
Two shows a day, four nights a week
Easy money

So who you gonna call?
The martini police
So who you gonna call?
The martini police
Baby, that isn't how they look tonight
It took the light absolutely forever to get to your eyes

And as we gaze skyward, ain't it dark early?
It's the star treatment, yeah
And as we gaze skyward, ain't it dark early?
It's the star treatment
It's the star treatment
The star treatment

It's not weird, odd or boring, it's just a different direction, they didn't invent this genre, it has existed since way back then (just look at Bowie and retro lofi influences). Just because you haven't heard music like this before does not mean it's crap.
Geez, tumblr girls and their closed minds.
"I'm disappointed, I expected more" well Fuck you and your expectations, mate, the band is not supposed to please you individually, if you don't like this album don't buy it, don't listen, go back to the early albums and leave us alone.

Ruairidhl Crichton, how about your album, was it inspired by this horse shite???


I've been around since the I bet you look on the dancefloor days. Trust me, the indie hipsters who complained about Humbug/AM/Suck it and see were way more vocal and annoying than the Tumblr girls.
