Yet another single from Britain's Biggest band and it's fantastic! The second CD features the tracks: 1. Michael 2. Don't Start 3. Tell Her Tonight (German version sung by the drummer) which are all excellent. I would advise you to buy it NOW! MY favourite track is Don't Start
This is another of Franz F's greatest hits, and one of the many reasons that make them popular. First of all, the track listings are as follows: 1. Michael 2. Don't Start BUT, I must tell you this. This is a NEW VERSION. On the old versions of Michael CD 2, there was a 3rd track, Tell Her Tonight (Paul Sings). Apparently, this German song was deemed too offensive, and so they repackaged Michael CD 2, taking off the 3rd single. Don't be disappointed Franz Fans, because you're not missing out on anything great. Owning one of these 2-track versions isn't a bad thing, as you still get the main thing, a nifty (if short) B-Side, and, quite frankly, after hearing the German song on the 'net to see what it was like (mp3 style!), it was rubbish. Didn't get a word of it, and the singing was awful. Seriously. So, if yours only came with 2 tracks, like mine, don't worry, you've still got all the great bits! Song Verdicts Michael-A very fast-paced rock tune that's appeared on 4 things. That's how awesome it is. Don't Start-An enjoyable tune, with a great chorus! But, it could've been longer. I recommend you get this great single, it rocks!
This is a GREAT CD. If you can find it anywhere now that it's out of stock, get it immediately. Because it is well worth your money. Here's why:
MICHAEL--This fast paced rock song is of very good quality. It's just that many would be given some wrong impressions about Alex Kapranos from listening to the lyrics of the song. But I'm not going to start describing why. The bottom line is that it's a good song. Featuring vocals by Alex Kapranos and Nick McCarthy.
DON'T START--This is a duet song between Alex Kapranos and Nick McCarthy, which starts out sounding like a gentle acoustic song, not which is not always what you want from Franz Ferdinand. That's why it rocks up during the chorus into a fast beat and cool rythem that you're sure to like. Featuring vocals by Alex Kapranos and Nick McCarthy.
TELL HER TONIGHT [GERMAN VERSION]--This version of the song TELL HER TONIGHT is downright HILARIOUS. I thought the demo was so bad that it was funny, but now the funny TELL HER TONIGHT is this version all the way. But the fact that it's in German isn't the only reason why. The other reason is that the drummer of Franz Ferdinand--Paul Thomson--is lead singing! That's right. Paul lead sings! If there was one track on this CD that made it worth getting, it was this. Unfortunately, this version isn't available on ANY other CD-Single. That's why it's so urgent for you to purchase this if you can find it. Featuring vocals by Paul Thomson, Nick McCarthy, and Alex Kapranos.
So it's a 5/5 all the way. I recommend you do all you can to get it.
