Rosi’s Ideal Arctic Monkeys Setlist

Shoutout to @monsieurlennon @jossmayfair @arcticmonkeyys @train-inthedistance and @esparafuso for tagging me in this painful and brain breaking exercise.

What would your current perfect Arctic Monkeys set list be?
Rules: TLSP and Submarine Soundtrack are off the table but all the AM b-sides are obviously fair game. OKAY let’s do this: Cap 20 songs including the encore (and in order!!) 

(First off. PICKING ONLY 20 SONGS IS NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE. IT’S LIKE WHEN SOMEONE ASKS ME WHAT MY FAVE AM RECORD IS. Spoiler alert, they’re all my faves. This is like asking a parent to choose a favourite child. Anyway, moving on to this monumental task.)

1- Do I Wanna Know? (I have an intense feeling of nostalgia for the dramatic instrumental intro from the AM era. I swear that intro could raise me from the dead.)

2- I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor (Bonus points if Alex yells out “Señoritas” before starting the song.)

3- The View From The Afternoon (Matt would ABSOLUTELY KILL IT ON THE DRUMS. Bang bang Mr. Drummer Man. Y’all are welcome for that visual.)

4- Fluorescent Adolescent (Cue nostalgia because “The best you’ve ever had is just a memory”. Just punch me in the gut. It would hurt less.)

5- Do Me A Favour (Nostalgia Intensifies.)

6- Cornerstone (I’d like for the audience to pull out cell phones and lighters and wave them in the air dramatically as they belt out this particular tune.)

7- My Propeller (Get everyone going again. Ladies and gentlemen, start your propellers.)

8- Crying Lightning (The guitars in this give me life.)

9- Brianstorm (Mat killing it on the drums once again.)

10 - She’s Thunderstorms (Another guitar-giving-me-life song. Also notice the weather theme.)

11- Don’t Sit Down ‘Cause I’ve Moved Your Chair (The intro to this song also gives me life. Also Alex’s hip movements during this. Only real 90’s kids remember. Reblog if you’re a true 90’s kid.)

12- Library Pictures (#1: The instruments in this song. LIFE GIVING. #2: MOSH PIT.)

13- Fireside (Cue visual of potatoes in a pot, the water reaching a rolling boil. You stare at the bubbling water and feel nostalgia for some nameless lover. Second hand yearning.)

14- Only Ones Who Know (From 0 to 100 real quick. Yearning intensifies.)

15- I Wanna Be Yours (Cell phones and lighters in the air. Sway to the beat. Feel the music cleanse your soul.)

16- Arabella (Allow Alex’s hip movements and stripper moves to kill you slowly and revive you all at once.)

17- You’re So Dark (EVERYONE IN THE AUDIENCE DIES OF SEXUAL FRUSTRATION.)


ENCORE:

18- R U Mine? (The formerly deceased audience returns from the afterlife after hearing the first notes of this song.)

19- Little Illusion Machine (Alex announces a surprise guest. You cannot believe your eyes as Miles Fucking Kane walks onto the stage. THE AUDIENCE FUCKING RIOTS. ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE IN THE MOST AWESOME WAY.)

20- 505 (Alex and Miles perform this pressed against one another as they share a microphone a la TLSP. Tears of joy wash over the faces of everyone in attendance.)

She Is The Sunlight
  • She Is The Sunlight
  • Trading Yesterday
  • More Than This
Play

And if loving her is, is heartache for me. And if holding her means that I have to bleed. Then I am the martyr, love is to blame. Cause she is the healing and I am the pain. She lives in a daydream where I don’t belong, cause she is the sunlight and the sun is gone.

my fav ayahina song.

The tiger scene = Perfection!

Rutina and Richard, gosh I can’t even… her initial fear is so endearing cause when we first meet her she’s so strong and confident but then we see her hesitate, we see vulnerability and it pulls you in. Francis reassuring her is so sweet too. 

Then he describes the tiger to her and its such a brilliant description. But the real magic, the true brilliance, was watching Reba feel the tiger, commit it to memory and watching Francis watching her. These silent scenes with him are so powerful and then Reba sheds a tear and I wanna cry with her! Perfection I tell you.
