41 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.

42 Love is a Laserquest

Love this song! It deserves to be in top ten without a doubt. it's my favourite arctic monkeys song! Wonderful blend of instruments and vocals.. Great lyrics..

I think this song deserves to be at least in the top 10! Is an amazing song, not very known, though. But that doesn't stop it from being one of their best songs.

Such a moving song! Its lyrics are so emotional. It makes it impossible not to fall in love with Alex Turner and his genius.

Suck it and see sucks but this is probably at top 5

43 Potion Approaching
44 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

45 She's Thunderstorms

Damn it! I really enjoy it! Restart playback, restart playback!

Beautiful guitar picking going on throughout the whole song. And wonderful lyrics too

That guitar picking and those lyrics... Just amazing

46 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.

This song's just awesome!

How is this not higher up. Great song!

47 Matador
48 Mad Sounds

Ooh la la la, their finest moment

I broke down crying in public when I heard this for the first time. Enough said.

How is this #65? One of the best AM's songs

How can this ne #65? Should be higher

49 That's Where You're Wrong

This, like most of their other album closers, is one of their best songs. The lyrics are fantastic and the guitar sounds great. The whole album is underrated, but I don't know how this song has ended up so far down.

Doesn't get the recognition it deserves, much like the whole of Suck it and See. Definitely should be top 10, in my personal top 5 Arctic Monkeys songs - Chippieolamus

One of the best Arctic Monkey songs. Sad to see it all the way down here.

My favorite song, so underrated! I love the lyrics, it just makes me so happy.

50 Cigarette Smoker Fiona

Would almost certainly be considered one of their best songs if it had been on one of their albums. - Chippieolamus

This and Leave Before the Lights Come On should have made it onto their debut album.

This song is amazing! 60? What

51 The Hellcat Spangled Shalalala

This song, along with the entirety of Suck It And See, are criminally underrated. An absolute jewel of a song, with such a wistful feel to it. Simply fantastic music. It's a shame to see it go unappreciated.

"Shalala" that's all it needs

Seriously underrated. This song is a rare Jewel. Just look at those lyrics!

52 This House is a Circus

THE best song by the Arctic Monkeys. I'm not one of those who is just into the poppy stuff. I think that humbug and fwn are by far the best albums, but this song is just amazing. I just love the high vocal bit. "now that we're here, we may as well go too far! "

This should be in top5 no matter what. Absolutely fantastic song which makes you go wild. Pure genius. My favorite arctic monkeys song.

Alex and matt are sharp in this one. It's a crowd favourite. The tune is fantastic

Favourite song of the album... also favourite album

53 D is for Dangerous

Seriously under rated song. Should be higher shocked that I had to add this one

One of my fave Arctic Monkeys songs, why the hell is this at number 99?! Its like in my top 5! -_-

In my top 10 for sure, so good live. Very underrated Monkeys song.

LOVE THIS SONG! THIS SONG IS MY FAVORITE SONG FROM 'FAVORITE WORST NIGTHMARE' ALBUM.

54 One for the Road

Definitely a great song

Arabella/One For The Road are my favorite songs

Should be in the top 10 yo

Never really spoken of but a good song none the less

55 The Bakery

WHAT?! This song is so amazing! It's one of their softer songs, but it's so lovely. Alex sounds so sincere and full of longing. Totally underrated- listen to it people!

56 Temptation Greets You Like Your Naughty Friend

I really love this song, even though not many others do.

Catchy guitar riff, great use of bass and drums.

57 Bad Woman

Wow, this is VERY overrated, as I can see.
I adore Alex's voice, and guitar in the beginning. Amazing!

58 On the Run from the MI5
59 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!

The lyrics... ♥

60 Too Much to Ask

Though nearly no one has heard this amazing b-side, it is, in my mind, the greatest song Alex Turner has every written. Through sombre and passionate lyrics, he weaves the tale of an entire relationship through a series of poignant vignettes. This entire song drips in atmosphere, from the soft crooning of Turner's voice to the subdued Nicholson bass line that strings the entire melody together. The unbelievable poetry that is the lyrics somehow manage to impart the most sublime detail whilst still slipping perfectly into step with the music that tugs at your heartstrings and pulls you on and on. If you're an Arctic Monkeys fan and you haven't heard this, get on it. NOW. If you love music, do the same. Again and again, this song's magic reminds me of the power of music.

Music in it seems so deep. The song is full of emotions.

One of the best 5 at least
