81 Take Her Back - The Pigeon Detectives
82 The Fallen - Franz Ferdinand
83 The World at Large - Modest Mouse
84 Gravity Rainbow's - Klaxons
85 Arabella - Arctic Monkeys

This is a sinfully seductive song about a sexy mysterious girl who he has his eyes on, her name being Arabella. If you really listen close, you'll hear some sweaty hot lyrics. This is what he says about her:
"That's magic in a cheetah print coat. Just a slip underneath it I hope."
He goes on to say:
"Wraps her lips 'round a Mexican Coke. Makes you wish that you were the bottle..."

94 Club Foot - Kasabian

A classic, no doubt. Such a cool song with killer lyrics. Something I'll never forget. I'm flying to Europe to see them play specifically this song!

Lyrics to the first verse:

One... Take control of me?
You're messing with the enemy
Said it's 2... It's another trick
Messing with my mind, I wake up
Chase down an empty street
Blindly snap the broken beats
I said it's cut with a dirty trick
It's taken all these days to find ya.


95 Change Your Mind - The Killers
96 Derail & Crash - The Wombats
97 Underdog - Kasabian

Why 87? This song should be at least in 10 place

The song I can relate to, besides very enregetic.

98 Can You Give It - The Maccabees
99 Go Outside - Cults
100 The Dark of the Matinee - Franz Ferdinand
