Top Songs from the Arctic Monkeys

21 Still Take You Home

The ferocity and chaos that comes off the first riff draws you in. The song may come off slightly misogynistic to people who don't read into things. It's not really, it's condemning the type of woman with more boobs than brains.

This song's lyrics have a confidence and a swagger to them that strangely contrast with the anger and anxiety behind the music. Yet it all comes across so self assured that you don't question that he's wrong, you assume he has this person figured out.

This is the quintessential early Arctic Monkeys song to me. This is them at their funk punkiest and Alex Turner at his most interesting.

Such an energetic song, with a sick funky riff and funny lyrics... Deserves to be in the top five!

22 Old Yellow Bricks

This is one really good song. I like how it keeps it tune though-out the song from star to end. One of my best and favourite songs.

This song is very underrated, should be at least in the top ten in my opinion. Definitely one of the best songs from the 2nd album! - BreakingBen

15? Are you crazy guys? It was the first AM song I've heard and it had me hooked on em ever since!
Should at least be in the top 10

Best song by them in my opinion, that beat though...mint.

98? You people probably never heard Pretty Visitors.

This is a really good song and deserves to be in the top 10

24 Suck It and See

I think it's an absolutely beautiful love song and a true representation of the maturity brought into their sound with the release of this album. They still have the quirky yet great metaphors "you're rarer than a can of dandelion and burdock, and those other girls are just lost mix lemonade" accompanied by a good chord progression and the rhythmic expert that is mathew J helders. My favourite by far.

One of the most incredible Arctic Monkeys songs. It's got such a dreamy, wistful feel to it that makes it so beautiful and moving to listen to. Definitely top ten.

The kind of song that would remind you of your beloved. Such sweet song with good arrangement and metaphorical lyrics. I think this is my 2nd favourite song from Arctic Monkeys.

Brilliant lyrics

This is one of their catchiest and greatest songs. I don't know why this isn't in the top ten.

Knee socks is the best arctic monkeys song no doubt. Absolute beauty

Very catchy

29 Snap Out of It

Awesome sound, great use of different vocal styles, and classic instruments, even if it is a little simple for some people

#28?! Come on guys, this is one of their best songs, I can't believe it isn't in top 5..

Both lyrics and music are amazing in this one. I love it! So underrated. One of the best from AM.

Ok why is this song so underrated?

30 Piledriver Waltz

It's a travesty that this has placed under some boring derivative stuff. I love this song so much, it's lyrics are very human in a way that flows so perfectly and sounds so good with the instruments. I do prefer the Alex Turner version though.

Should be in top ten at least! This song is amazing! I especially love the end!

This song has such beautiful imagery and conveys emotion so well

31 No. 1 Party Anthem

It's not like I'm falling in love I just want you to do me no good and you look like you could. The best song!

Never get bored listening this song. This song bring me to the other dimension haha so good

My favourite song! It's nearly hypnotic and so different to the usual loud and heavy guitar chords associated with the Arctic Monkeys!

Should be so much higher

32 Bigger Boys and Stolen Sweethearts

Just an insane song, should definitely have been released as a single

33 Only Ones Who Know

I fell in love with this right off the bat. It's truly an astounding creation by the boys. I wish I could somehow go back in time to the moment when I first heard this song, because it's honestly magical hearing it for the first time. - RobynTM

Beautiful melody, and vocals. It's A good cool down song on an album full of excitement. However, it's still great as a stand alone.

This is a wonderful song. Very complete it was to be one of the Top Tens.

I love this song, wonderful n nice song

34 You Probably Couldn't See for the Lights but You Were Looking Straight at Me

Love this song so much! The tune is absolutely brilliant, and the lyrics are very funny to listen to. The first verse is my favourite part of the song 'One look sends it coursing through the veins, oh how the feeling races
Back up to their brains to form expressions on their stupid faces
They don't want to say hello, but I can't want to say hello
My heartbeat's at its peak, when you're coming up to speak' Absolute tune to listen to.

Never again... never again will there be another one quite as desirable as you

35 Don't Sit Down 'Cause I've Moved Your Chair

This song is by far my favorite! I know the songs from their first record are considered the best ones, but, please! This song is just amazing! Oh, and for goodness shake, it's not brAInstorm! It is brIAnstorm! Really! Check this on wikipedia! Could someone please correct this?!

Yeah yeah yeah the lyrics are hilarious on this one

Only 20? Really people?

100% energy 100% amazing lyrics 100% one of bests

36 Secret Door

This is a seriously underrated song, apparently based on alex's relationship with Alexa. Its brilliantly formatted and the end choruses are delivered with such brilliance I don't understand why people can rate songs such as"dangerous animals" and "my propeller" over this. This song, like most songs in "Humbug" certainly grows on you and is sometimes dismissed because people are not prepared to give it more time or another listen.

Their most underrated song! Such a deep experience behind it

I couldn't agree more with that big para

Arguably THE MOST underrated arctic monkeys song and definitely one of their best. Always will be one of my favourites!

37 Black Treacle

This should be up in the top ten! The lyrics are pure genius and the guitar riff in the chorus kills me every time. It's a gorgeous song

Absolutely INCREDIBLE. So many feelings from this song, and the lyrics are impeccably clever. Should indubitably be top five!

This is simply their best song! I'm shocked since it is 25th!

I love this song. It is one of my favourites.

38 Despair in the Departure Lounge

Probably the best lyrics I've ever heard.

Alex's best lyrics in my opinion. This song will tear through a happy mood in thirty seconds.

De ptmr

39 Potion Approaching
40 Perhaps Vampires Is a Bit Strong But...

I absolutely love the guitar solo at the end.
In an interview
Alex Turner was asked what the meaning
Of this song was. He answered that it
Actually was written regarding the people
Of Sheffield (their home town) and their
Lack of support. When he was asked
Whether they were glad to be called
Vampires his rebuttal was that they wasn't
Very happy with the title but he stood by
The lyrics.

How is this not higher up. Great song!
