Tonight: Franz Ferdinand

The marquee of a theatre before a show.

It’s music of the night: to fling yourself around your room to as you psyche yourself for an evening of hedonism, for the dance-floor, flirtation, for your desolate heart-stop, for losing it and loving losing it, for the chemical surge in your bloodstream. It’s for that lonely hour gently rocking yourself, ... Read more in Amazon's Franz Ferdinand Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing brand of new music 28 April 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This track has already made a great impression, as it breezes into thecharts at number 8 this week. I have absolute no doubts Franz Ferdinandwill make it big with this single and the follow ups that are sure tocome. Their music has a funky back beat and follows through with a tuneyou can dance too. As with all great singles theirs nothing better thanblasting this one from your car stereo and singing along. It'll take awhile to learn the trace of the words, but once you do it's amazing howsatisfying this is. Matinee, is a great single and well worth placing atthe top of any collection, as i think it crosses a lot of tastes.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW 24 April 2004
Format:Audio CD
Franz Ferdinand are back with their 2nd Single off their self named album.I didnt really rate them until i heard this song as i found take me outquite tedious.
Lyrics like "SO FIND ME AND FOLLOW ME, THROUGHCORRIDORS, REFECTORIES AND FILES" from a band deserve to stay in theindustry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hoboken? 9 Aug 2007
By S. K. Harrell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
These b sides bring something to their work in this era that the full LP release doesn't have: a suave style. I'm generally not a huge fan of remixes, but these are worth the effort. They could be a lounge act yet...
