I haven't slept for two days
I've bathed in nothing but sweat
And I've made hallways
Scenes for things to regret
My friends, they come
And the lines, they go by
Tonight I'm gonna rest my chemistry
Tonight I'm gonna rest my chemistry

I live my life in cocaine
Just some rage and three kinds of yes
And I've made stairways
Such scenes for things that I regret
Oh, those days in the sun
They bring a tear to my eye
Tonight I'm gonna rest my chemistry
Tonight I'm gonna rest my chemistry

But you're so young
You're so young
You look in my eyes
You're so young
So sweet, so suprised

Saw a sign, it says "Okay"
Gotta take a ride
Just recline in the faraway
Got to take some time to realize
That my friends, they come
And the lines, they go by
Tonight I'm gonna rest my chemistry
Tonight I'm gonna rest my chemistry

But you're so young
You're so young
You look in my eyes
You look so young
So sweet, so suprised
You look so young
Like a daisy in my lazy eye

So tonight I'm gonna rest my chemistry
Tonight I'm gonna rest my chemistry

A coke rage....with three kinds of yes!  Yes!  YES!!  This one gets cranked up notch....now it's a 9....Long Live RP!!
A great, grinding song.  And I mean that in the best way possible.  The drug abuse lyrics set me in mind of a certain 13th Circle tune, entitled The Nurse Who Loved Me: 

"I'm taking her home with me
All dressed in white
She's got everything I need
Pharmacy keys."

Ah yes....pharmacopia...what a land.  WHAT a land, eh?  So easy to get into.  Hell to get out.

Grabs you by the throat and doesn't let go (in a good way!). Love this - 9 from me. Are their albums as good as this - any recommendation?
Very very and very good song {#Dancingbanana}

I agree on both counts, I came over to the computer to turn it up because I thought the Pixies were on

Good tune...great imagery.....let's now rest.

Wow...this is a super fantastic song from a super group that understands rock music for the 21st century.

The vocals are soaring!

The guitar work is unbelievable!

The drumming is so unique!

For all you haters out there, just stay in your little narrow and closed minded ways and listen to your old time music. 

What the heck...I had to try and think like the other side. 
    

 

Love this song. Was with your comments until you called out people whose tastes differ from yours. Who's the hater now? :-)

Dont listen to them.  They're just trying to turn RP into country station.

This song is amazing every time I hear it.

Plods along like a sexy and elegant zombie!  Love it.
I've never actually seen Breaking Bad, so I'm just going to pretend like this is the opening theme for it. That makes me like the song much more, for some reason...
Do we have to pay extra to get this guy to sing instead of just chanting? 

Someone needs to spoof this song on "Funny or Die."  
overplayed
ooo,sooo good.this is what i needed this morning at the first day of work after the vacation.thx bill,this one really rocks!

They are a bit of a one-trick pony.   The indie scene is littered with them. It's hard not to recall a zombie when looking at the photo below.  Weird.   I do like some of their stuff though.

this sounds like a lot of fun to play...{#Dancingbanana_2}
I'd like to hear NYC
It's a great sound!
This is one of those songs that makes me login to rp to see what people think. 
This is has grown on me like foost (mould) multiplying in a petrie dish - very nice

Yes.  I've decided I really like this track.  It's gone from a 7 -> 8 for me.  I've re-evaluated Interpol and their style is pretty interesting.  Definitely a crank-it tune.

In that guitar arpeggio in the opening and bridge I hear something not entirely unlike the guitar riff from Where Is My Mind, only sped up.

No! No estoy de acuerdo. Si, uno puede ver sus influencias claramente en su trabajo musical, pero pienso que muestran flexiblidad con esos influencias.

Wow...what if the person who made the original post is from another country? Making your critique of their "grammar" rather close-minded and somewhat racist. Or they could have a legitimate learning disability which makes you seem like a complete jerk. By the way, are your spelling mistakes (ment & bable) intentional? If so, you have no business commenting on anyone else's grammar!

RP comments are meant (correct spelling, btw) to be fun. Let's not turn this into a typical internet flamewar area.
Joy Division errrr  Interpol Rules!


Plodding down to a 3.

Since when does the ability to write a coherent sentence of more than seven or eight words make one "full of oneself"?


That's just it! The post would've been just as coherent with half as many words and a third of the punctuation. That it was written insulting somebody using English as a second language only makes it worse.

I love this groove.

Give your chemistry a break. What boring sh....
It doesn't blow me away, but I kind of like it. And while we're at it: Yea Pixies! More Pixies! Pixies are teh great! (really Excelsior, what did you expect with a comment like that?)

Please don't compliment the Pixies. It only encourages Bill to play more of them. And all their songs are as boring as this one is.
First, The Pixies were a great band. Surfer Rosa remains as an all time favorite album. Second, Interpol does not get as close to them although I kinda liked this song... I was on the phone and it sounded psychedelic to me.

I thought this was some British band from the 80s that I had heard but couldn't quite remember. I like it!
Has sort of a Weezer feel to it. Maybe a cross between Weezer and Coldplay.
"For our third album, our singer learned how to sing a third note! Stay tuned for album #4, where we will explore the possibilities of adding C sharp to his repertoire."

Hey Bill, did you give this song a rest in the rotation for a while? It seemed like you were playing it constantly for a while and I was geting sick of it at the beginning of February. Then it was gone for a week or two and here it is again. And now it sounds good again! Funny how that works. Mr. G, you really are a genius.

I saw them at Lolla this summer, and that pretty much sums it up. Obviously capable, but uninspired. Pretty outfits, though. And yeah, the drummer is no Gavin Harrison.

The track 'Untitled' from their debut is "inspired", IMHO. You should try it.
