Catalina Lindegaard : i got this poem in class a few years ago, before the song came out and i always loved it. when i then noticed the lyrics to this song, i freaked out :)

midsummersky : "a poem in which i attempt to reduce myself to the level of a mere commodity for the greater good of the object of my desire" – honestly, it's like alex is speaking through john here. that line could've come staight out of alex's mouth.

Greg : Deep Deep Da Deep Deep

Ollie Mackay : He really looks like Ronnie Wood from the Rolling Stones

Catherine Hewitt : In 3 words This Is Beautiful

Keira Cox : This is also really cool because i'm pretty sure alex Turner is a huge john Cooper Clarke fan and has said that he's a huge influence, so I imagine that praise meant a lot.

Suspicious Potatoes : A bunch of the songs on AM have some of the coolest, most poetic lyrics I've ever heard, and that's probably why I love it so much

Mark Green : I'm impressed if that's all JCC own hair.

Jado SunnY : ending "deep deep deep" awesome ^_^

Nicole B : This man is the elderly version of Alex Turner.

Owen Armstrong : From the comments I've seen previous to this, I think it's safe to say that not enough people know how much of a legend John Cooper Clarke is.

patrick mullins : I've Seen Him Live he came on drunk and still performed like an utter legend!  

Dave LeBeau : Que no nos quieran engañar, en el futuro descubrieron la manera de viajar en el tiempo, este hombre es Alex Turner en unos 40 años D:

Keira Cox : I LOVE the original poem. Even though the version he released as a single was just him reading a single it's like most good spoken word - raw and frantic. Thought I was going to be disappointed by the AM version, totally wasn't, though it's far more chill.
