Freedom or control ?!?
Why not both. Because You can’t little Herbert.
Here watching the smart TV. Get on Youtube. The algorithm show up a group of clown with instruments.
” Always the usual clip on the platform to get likes ” I thought.
Let’s play it.
AHAHAHAHAHA what a geeks this guys..
Still them? The Arctic Monkeys? OMG.
Nice song.. Let’s get the Album. 2 of 2.. It did not happen since ” What’s the glory morning Story ” by Oasis.
Is that Brianstorm or Brainstorm?
For sure is a guy named Brian with a combination of T-Shirt and Tie.. An Innovator ironically said by A.Turner.
But then a lyric remind me Duran Duran with Save it for the morning after.
” They have always something to say ” I thought. I can’t believe that.
The 505.. Do you know what is a 505?
It’s something that is keeping you alive and killing you simultaneously.
Maybe in this album they show a little bit of sadness but with a rhythm like that it’s hard to reckon it.
” Who want sleep in a city that never wakes up ? ”
The nostalgia took me bad in the UK after the first 2/3 months.
Oz Wizard and Dorothy was right tough.
Maybe It’s too close to the Brink.
