I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor lyrics

Stop making the eyes at me
And I'll stop making the eyes at you
And what it is that surprises me
Is that I don't really want you to

And your shoulders are frozen
(Cold as the night)
Oh but you're an explosion
(You're dynamite)
Your name isn't Rio but I don't care for sand
And lighting the fuse might result in a bang b-b-bang! Go!

I bet that you look good on the dancefloor
I don't know if you're looking for romance or
I don't know what you're looking for
I said I bet that you look good on the dancefloor
Dancing to electro-pop like a robot from 1984
Well from 1984!

I wish you'd stop ignoring me
Because you're sending me to despair
Without a sound yeah you're calling me
And I don't think it's very fair

That your shoulders are frozen
(Cold as the night)
Oh but you're an explosion
(You're dynamite)
Your name isn't Rio but I don't care for sand
And lighting the fuse might result in a bang b-b-bang! Go!

I bet that you look good on the dancefloor
I don't know if you're looking for romance or
I don't know what you're looking for
I said I bet that you look good on the dancefloor
Dancing to electro-pop like a robot from 1984
Well from 1984!

Oh there ain't no love no, Montagues or Capulets
Just banging tunes in DJ sets and
Dirty dancefloors and dreams of naughtiness

I wanna bet that you look good on the dancefloor
I don't know if you're looking for romance or
I don't know what you're looking for
I said I bet that you look good on the dancefloor
Dancing to electro-pop like a robot from 1984
Said from 1984!

    Man,i m singing this song with my band in 2 weeks on a concert and i have to say that it s real heavy to get the timing of the lyrics right.Most of the lyrics i ve found on the net are also missing the part below the montagues and capulets.

    Can I ask the people who think AM is shit, one simple question? Are you fucking pricks retarded? Why the fuck to you even bother coming onto the AM page if you don't like em'? Do you honeslty think we (fans) enjoy reading your useless shitty comments on how good or bad AM is? Well, the answer is simple, NO. So who the fuck do you think you are giving your opinion, knowing you're going to piss off half of the fucking universe....You lot must h

    Did Joe lump Gorillaz and The Doors with Good Charlotte and Simple Plan? I think I'm gonna faint.

    AM is okay, but they're most definitely more Pop than Rock, which is perfectly fine, just don't mislabel it.

  • hello hello 0 points

    RHCP? Stoned right now? Well yes to both. As for the AM, they really have stolen the lime light from other mainstream/edge/new wave/franz bands. And its just another sign of how the mp3 format has changed the way we consume music. Unfortunatly we - the consumers have much less time to think about whats great (musically/lyracally challenging)and are more focused on now, and whats cool. Personally i love the AM, because im excited about the future of the art. As for RHCP? You have to have the time to enjoy the past - if you dont, make it!

    maybe you all wouldn't be such assholes if you spent more time listening to the music you like, and spent less time criticizing others' music taste. sure there are plenty of bands that i would say sucked, but if someone liked them i wouldn't ask WHY. its like asking someone why they are a specific race. everyone has a different ear for music. and just by you saying that a band they like sucks isn't going to lessen the impact of them unto the rest of the world. they will still be here and every time you hear a song by them you will still cringe.

    Come on people, what's wrong with you??? I mean, these guys are great. First I heard them was when in hospital and believe me, they made my stay there much better. And if you don't like them, at least don't offend them! They may be young, but it's even more surprising that at that age, they are able to create such music.

    SO SHUT THE FUCK UP AND IF ITS NOT WHAT IS PURE ROCK BY DEFENITION THAT REALLY DOESNT MATTER! ITS NOT HOW GOOD IT IS BASED ON THE LABEL! ITS GOOD BASED ON IF IT ENTERTAINS YOU! YOU ARE A BUNCH OF FUCKING FAGS!

    this is the lamest thing ever. get over yourselves. if someone thinks its "pure rock" then its pure rock to them. stop freaking out and saying you hate them JUST because they call it that. you guys seriously have no lives at all. go get one elsewhere.

    I am not saying the AM are great but they are not bad at all, they play and entertain so let them do it and please the people that like them.

    And for all the yanks that are slating britrock or pop whatever i will say this, take a look at some of the **** your country produces before you slate ours.

    i do look shit on the dancefloor. thats because im always up on the stage with my band pleasing everyone on the dancefloor (where i also look shit!). and rhcp are boring????!!! are you mad! thats real emotive music. they mean their music, and it sounds exciting. how can a dull rhythmic english accent be exciting to anyone? (scots not included)

    Arctic Monkeys make me wanna dance..and I never dance, ever.

    So what if the lyrics aren't excellent, and there are other bands/songs like this one?
    If it makes me happy that's good enough for me.

    And Red hot chili peppers? Please, they're boring.

  • MrBrightsight 0 points

    These guys r mad, lol. Expressing their views as if the whole world cares,lol. No point wasting ur time dudes if u two wanna dish each otha.
    this song is gud, reminds of blur in some wayz but ofcourse most british punk bands do sound alike but the point is, this has to be regarded as KOol without any doubt.

  • BenJ 0 points

    Ron plays drums for 6 years and he listens to artic monkeys? :|

    i respect ur opinion and all..but hes just bull mate

    yep ginny said it, AM fans are as bad as emos! :D
    its just another trend..simple

  • Rhcpper 0 points

    ok. well you see my point of view and i see yours. there are bands worse than am, but i just hate the hype associated with them. they REALLY arent that good. it WAS promotion that made them big and i still think that they cant play their instruments... but if thats what you wanna do... who am i to stop you!

  • Ron 0 points

    Just respect each other, is that so hard..?

  • Ron 0 points

    And don't worry RHCPPER, I don't feel offended,tis is not my favourite band since I like a lot of music, from techno to punk and from hiphop to club. And if I want to get high I'll go to one of these techno raves here in Holland, plenty of them really.
    I agree that there are a lot of bands that are better than AM, but look at the bands on TV nowadays, not a lot of highly skilled ones now are there?

  • Ron 0 points

    I don't think it's about quality or about the skill of each band member. This music might be simple, easy to play and it might require little skills but this "simple" music, as you call it Elmo mate
    seems to be liked by many people, and it makes these people feel good.. and that's a good thing, right?

  • Ron 0 points

    I just don't see the point of coming here, slate this band and leave again. I listen to all kinds of music, not only Arctic Monkeys and have played drums for like 6 years now, so yes.. you can say that I know something about music.

  • Ron 0 points

    There are people that like AM and there are people that do not. There are people that like red trousers and there are people that do not.There are people that like spinach and others don't. Every individual has his own taste on anything and these tastes also differ in music. AM makes music and there are people in the world that likes this band and music and what's wrong with that?

  • ginny 0 points

    i think that u should respect people and their preferences, if u dont like this music, it doesnt mean that everyone should think like u... it's happenin' the same with emo people.. nobody respects them, cuz no one understands their likings or their feelings

  • elmo 0 points

    believe it or not, but that rhc guy its actually being honest and speaking to closest thing to truth of this page. He is judging the music by himself, by its style, and not by its popularity. He is not being consumed by the fad, but is just voicing an opionion. Just becuz it has sold many records doesnt mean its good, u fucktard.

  • Elmo 0 points

    I can't keep to understand why average or below average music can even make it into the mainstream market. There are thousands of unsighned bands out there with 1000 times more talent than Am, and they get nothing. Half of Am's success is promtion. They aren't musically talented enough to actually be around for years successfully. they are the type of band that their songs sound very similar and people get bored easily. Worst part is that singer though, he just can't sing..end of..Go on, give me a siongle reason why their siger would ever be considered above average or even "good".

  • elmo 0 points

    ron, do u play any kind of instrument? I think if actually did you might understand that this music actually is shit and requires little skill. It is so simple. Thats why so many chavs and dance people like it, becuase it is so close to their shit music. It shows no expression or emotion to anything at all. Do they even have any kind of above average solos or any other types of decent song development? its just shit chorus after chorus.....boooring.

  • Rhcpper 0 points

    Dont worry my friend. i understand that you must be feeling some negative emotions towards me and thats perfectly normal. i have just opened your eyes to the fact that youre favourit band is shit. but dont worry my friend...i will be here for you every step of the way. besides, its not real music, its just music to get high to and fight people and cause violence. IT ENCOURAGES CHAVS!!!! so with that in mind....why would you listen to it!

  • Ron 0 points

    A band that sucks doesn't bring out a CD that is sold in most European countries and maybe even outside Europe. I don't understand why people like "rhcpper" and his third ball "the fonz" cannot respect others in their taste of music.

  • ron 0 points

    It's a good band. Ofcourse they're not as good as e.g. Red Hot Chili Peppers but who cares? RHCPPER why dont you just fuck off, leave AM and their fans alone and go listen to the music you like.. then we'll listen to the music we like. Is that so hard?

  • The Fonz 0 points

    i agree with rhcppr. It is just another britrock fad. Listen to some proper rock u make comments like "ITS PURE ROCK"-Isaac.
    ANd the english accent thing is also very true, it isnt proper singing...

    WTF is that with teh vid with only the drummer. He isnt even good.

    in conclusion....chav rock wannabes

  • rhcpper 0 points

    arctic monkeys are a bunch of talentless acne-ridden kids withouot a clue of real music with emotion and passion. 'bangin tunes and dj sets'???? is everyone mad but me?? how are those good lyrics??? their singer cant sing so he just speaks rhythmically with an english accent. they have to wear their guitars high up because they cant play them properly. but hell, everyone who listens to them is probably too high to realise. in summary... arctic monkeys are just another YES ANOTHER britpop fad who will be but a memory in two years time... oh and listen to the red hot chili peppers, thats REAL music.
