Arctic Monkeys Seduce on Stomping ‘Stop the World I Wanna Get Off With You’

Arctic Monkeys 'Stop the World I Wanna Get Off With You' AM b-side

Arctic Monkeys have backed up their “Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?” single with the equally long-in-name B-side “Stop the World I Wanna Get Off With You.” The A-side deals with the mishaps of drunken booty calls, but Alex Turner takes a slightly more romantic tack on the flip. He suggests that he and his lady friend drop everything else in their lives to go somewhere alone and do adult things (and he doesn’t mean go shopping at Ikea). As with the band’s prior releases in the leadup to their fifth album, AM, “Stop the World” stomps and swaggers. If this is what Arctic Monkeys consider a B-side, just imagine the rest of the LP. Check the song below and pick up AM on September 10.
