A flipside, almost, to 'Can't Stand Me Now' - the first single from the album 'The Libertines'. The lyrics, like any song, can be applied to your own life, situation etc, but it is glaringly obvious that it deals with the ever fractious relationship of frontmen Carl and Pete. It seems more light hearted in this track, but to fans of the band, it's play on the relationship, which has lead to the demise of The Libertines, is affecting.
I doubt it will touch people on this level who know nothing of the former friendship of Pete and Carl, although it is, surprisingly, the favourite song of many "new" fans of The Libertines.
I adivse you to buy this - as it will probably be your last chance to buy a Libertines single. Fingers crossed I am proved wrong...
