Top Songs from the Arctic Monkeys

The Contenders: Page 2

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.

23 If You Were There, Beware

This song deserves to be in the top ten list..

Its in Favourite Worst Nightmare but, sounds so Humbug.
Very underrated, but very COOL at the same time.

One of my favourites

24 Pretty Visitors

This is the best of Humbug and its 32nd? This is blasphemy

98? You people probably never heard Pretty Visitors.

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

25 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

28 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.

Very catchy

30 I Wanna Be Yours

How is this so low? 42?! Are you serious? Oh my god, listen to this song. It's lyrics are beautiful.. damn.

This song is based off of a poem like the bands name. Both by the same poet.

When a band turns a poem into a song you can feel the intensity in the air!

This sould be higher... My favorite song from Artic Monkeys by far

31 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?

33 Library Pictures

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

34 Fire and the Thud

Just the rhythm takes this to top ten

This list is a disgrace. this is a lovely song with the best lyrics

35 Balaclava

Definitely should be top 15, AM have so many good songs and this is one of the best. This House is a Circus should also be higher. Basically everything off the first 2 albums is class

I don't believe this song wasn't added yet, it's one of his best songs!

I love this song so much. Should be so much higher up this song is awesome.

Should be at least top 20

36 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

37 No Buses

SO UNDERRATED. this is a great song a must listen for fans of the Arctic Monkeys. Has a kind of similar feel to the beginning of Mardy Bum

Such a great song. I hate how half of the high spots on this list are all AM songs. It's songs like this that truly draw you into Arctic Monkeys.

The lyrics are so true! Best song ever

This song is just calmy as hell, worth a listen

38 Red Light Indicates Doors are Secured

Amazing beat, and such good lyrics. Alex's lyric writing skills is perfectly showcased in this song, and the music itself is so good! I have this song on repeat.

Simply awesome

39 Bigger Boys and Stolen Sweethearts

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

40 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
