ta... i thought it was a good track to be honest, its been a little bit of an ear-worm over the weekend since i first heard it... thought it was a tad "80s" whilst listening to it, in a retro way...

Gotta say, I am really enjoying the song especially after a few more listens. Bit difficult to make out some of the words but I think the lyrics are along these lines:


I am electric, with a bottle in me,
Got a bottle in me.
Glory be, these f***ers are ignoring me,
I'm from another century.
I am a preacher, with a bottle in me,
Got a bottle in me.
Glory be, these f***ers are ignoring me,
They'll never learn from history.

Hey, I am the beau who lovers saw in every song,
And I designed that little history on your tongue,
I've broken jaws protecting laws to keep you free,
I've made your day so take a seat by me.

Can we talk about how amazing the brass and strings sound in this tune?

I can't quite tell, but I think the solo part has a bit of organ, too. Can anyone tell? I honestly thought it was just really cool sounding synthesizer until I saw brass and string players in one of the videos. All I know is this song sounds like all the coolest brass and string parts from other Elbow tunes combined in perfect fusion.

(Here's a particularly good capture just in case: http://youtube.com/watch?v=9NiwIPwtOkg )

If ever they were channeling Gabriel...it's here. Definitely one of those times where the live pre-release version is good enough that I fear the studio version might *gasp* change something.

Quite good - thanks for the link, Kiresg.

Also: "Glory be, these f***ers are ignoring me" nails the arseholes chattering around 3:00 into that link.

Niftium: It's such an excellent line for a live show. It's been a great zinger in every vid I've seen so far.

Anyways, in the refrain, I'm wondering whether Guy actually says "And I designed that little mystery on your tongue". Does this seem to fit well enough? I can't tell whether this sounds right or whether I'm just fixating on how the word 'history' is repeated.
