Arctic Monkeys - Mad Sounds Lyrics




Mad sounds in your ears make you feel alright
They bring you back to life
Mad sounds in your ears, they make you get up and dance
They make you get up

Yeah, they make you get up

Love buckles under the strain of those wild nights
Run but you cannot hide

Mad sounds in your ears make you get up and dance
Make you get up
All night long reappear
Make you get up and dance

Yeah, they make you get up

Suppose you've gotta do what you gotta do
We just weren't feeling how we wanted to
You sit and try sometimes but you just can't figure out what went wrong
Then out of nowhere somebody comes and hits you with an
Ooh la la la la...
(Ooh la la la la...)

You got those mad sounds in your ears to make you get up and dance
Mad sounds in your ears make you get up and dance
Well don't they make you get up
Yeah, they make you get up

Arctic Monkeys Mad Sounds Comments
  1. Brevin Bonton

    This song and thomas dolby's one of our submarines play in my mind when I am stagnant

  2. Katherine River Sage

    Pete Thomas from Elvis Costello & The Attractions played drums on this one!!

  3. Lyla Wood

    I can just imagining an arctic monkeys fan recognizing another fan in a bar somewhere, and the other one is sad, so the guy just randomly goes "oh la la la..."

    And immediately the other guy feels a bit better

  4. Hoze 123

    this song has a late 90s feel to it

  5. Dumb Ass

    This song makes me think of the good old times with someone

  6. Alex 5432

    I wonder if they took the ooh la la la as an inspiration from School of Rock

  7. Don Draper

    I love every single song in this album except I never took the time to listen to this one and I gotta say ...




    That was beautiful ✨

  8. Yago Garcia

    Es igual a "Heroina" de Sumo

  9. patricio welsh

    I think AM is the best album I know However this is the only song of the album that I don’t enjoy as much. Its like an average song in an album full of masterpieces.

  10. Cesar Tovar

    Velvet Underground..

  11. Mati Isaguirre

    Oh la la la
    Oh la la la
    Oh la la la oh

    thanx bud

  14. Meister Savvy

    The song's intro is so Velvet Underground

  15. Rina Lukic

    Honestly for so long I wanted someone to be with me. And now that I’ve loved and had a lover for a long time almost 2 years. It hurts way more then being lonely. It hurts because you know he’s falling out of love with you and you Can’t do anything about it. Nothing but listening to his lies. “ I love you.”

  16. larisa

    È la mia preferita

  17. Joe Sfeir

    Run but you cannot hide 🥵🥵

  18. Valtazar

    Darkest song ever.

  19. Asn Ariel Rakotomalala

  20. Maggie Kayvee

    I wanna smoke and slow dance omg kill me

  21. Septimus Heap

    This song makes me feel nice

  22. Emily Van

    I just hate it when people just randomly hit me with an "Oooh-la-la-la"

  23. Katharine Ho

    I used to listen to this all the time because it's how I felt without describing it or really paying attention.

  24. juanvillamd G

    This song will forever take me back to slow dancing with my first love. I will never forget thay feeling of joy and the little tears I cried when I held her in my arms.

  25. Mehmet Eren Aksu

    It is so coldplay

  26. Azau Salas

    This song palé blue eyes velvet undergroud

  27. Lo Peezy

    I asked my bf: What do you think it means, when he says "then somebody comes and hits you with the oooh la la la la"?

    I wonder if it means he fell in love and lost his focus on reality and critical thoughts/ reasoning...?

  28. NIGHTowl3301

    this reminds me of laying in the grass with my girlfriend smoking a cigarette and stargazing all night

  29. Iodyzer

    Mad Sounds: "Hey, can I copy your homework?"
    Pale Blue Eyes: "Sure, just don't make it sound obvious."
    Mad Sounds:

  30. Heather Rowan

    I was introduced to arctic monkeys by this song by a friend (bless her) we listened to Madsounds on the bus on the way to school. Afterwards, whenever I am having trouble sleeping I put on this song. I remember when I was a kid and my parents where fighting. I took my iPod and put this song on. Thank you for being my lullabye AM<3

  31. idk how bout u

  40. beatriz patricio

    Mad sounds in your ears, they make you feel alright

    They make you get up and dance
    Yeah they make you get up

    Suppose you've gotta do what you gotta do
    We just weren't feeling how we wanted to
    You sit and try sometimes but you just can't figure out what went wrong

    Ooh la la la, ooh la la la
    Ooh la la la ooh
    Ooh la la la, ooh la la la

  48. Caik Cunha

    Am reminds me The Beatles

    They bring you back to life
    Mad sounds in your ears, they make you get up and dance

    All night long they reappear
    They make you get up and dance
    Yeah they make you get up
    Suppose you've gotta do what you gotta do
    We just weren't feeling how we wanted to
    You sit and try sometimes but you just can't figure out what went wrong

    End of 2018 anyone?

  59. doobiescoo1

    I see parallels between this and The Carpenter's "Yesterday once more."

  60. Juan Lapré

    1 Mad sounds
    2 snap out of it
    3 knee socks

    JuStop-motion TM

    And no. 1 party anthem

  61. Delta

    I did a cover of this song, if you‘re interested, check it out!

  62. gloria ismyname

    i want to fall in love and then write a book about it so that someone can do a movie based on the book with this song on the soundtrack cd

  63. sweet stonem

    Damn all these comments are so depressed

  64. Iodyzer

    Getting some serious vibes about The Velvet Underground (more specifically, their self-titled acoustic one).

  65. El Tomas Holanda

    Te quiero, pero no te amo...

    So sad 😢

  66. Skann

    This is the most Lou Reed sounding non Lou Reed song I've ever heard

  67. Oğuzhan Kahraman

    What is the name of this kind music? Slow, relaxable, i really loved it.

  68. Eliot Boisteau

    ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuulalalalaouuuuuuuuu

  69. Caro Alday

    waiting for that one that out of nowhere, comes and hits you with a Ooh la la la :(

    Pimcslyrics

    Oohhh la lala ohh lala la ooooohhhhhh

  70. First Last

    this song is so calming

  71. Jasna Kurtović

    From the moment I first heard this I knew what was it about. It’s about two young people being in relationship which started looking like routine and somewhere in that boredom in the relationship he accidentally falls for somebody else and falls in love with somebody else to whom he refers mad sounds and the feeling of excitement and being in love makes him “get up and dance”

  72. Dess elter

    ohhh la la la la!
    sometime the song just make me repeat a dumb sound over and over. sometime it make me cry
    this song is both of them

  73. Maurice Lee

    Drum legend (and Elvis Costello and the Attractions alum) Pete Thomas backing the boys up!!

  74. Austen Cheethirala

    i <3 everyone in comments ur all me tbh

  75. hunter noelle

    this is my sad day song

  76. Ulfric Stormcloak

    I want to listen to this song at 4am sitting on the water front of Cleveland smoking a blunt with the most beautiful girl in the world. I'm gonna make that happen

  77. Ulfric Stormcloak

    Whenever I'm depressed I listen to the arctic monkeys. Without them I probably would be dead. I sat in front of my dads gun safe one night in the dark wishing it was open so I could just shoot myself and end it all but I was listening to arctic monkeys and they pulled me away from it.

  78. cari cari

    Slow dance then kiss the girl 2:12

  79. ana ruisa

    The best

  80. Chrisa Dritsa

    Velvet Underground?

  81. odeliya

    his voice... I think it just got me pregnant

  82. Sean Doyle

    Was just listening to Pale Blue Eyes for the first time and this came to mind straight away.

  83. angel mendoza

  88. Narendra Palem

    What the f....k up

  89. Dylan Stone

    This is actually my favorite song Ever and I have a playlist that is just this song and I just listen to it on repeat

  90. Leon Makovich

    I can't imagine myself forgot this song when i'm 63

  91. Craig Mackay

    Sad to think that out of the 2.5M people who have listened to this song less that 5% of them have bothered to give it a thumbs up

    Pim

    Could you explain the meaning of the lyrics to this song? I do not speak english

    Craig Mackay

    Pim a lot of their songs lyrics are ambiguous. The lyrics mean whatever you want them to. It’s always about the girl but it’s so relatable to you because it means whatever you think it does.

  92. Grace

    This song makes me extremely sad. I don’t understand how people think this sounds happy. The melody is very sad.

    Pim

    Could you explain the meaning of the lyrics to this song? I do not speak english

    Phan Cake

    I dont think its that sad because you have those “mad sounds” that helps you escape reality or that “make you get up and dance” personally its more a romantic song to me or at least gives you those romantic vibes

  93. Natalie Ngonela

    Picture a cold rainy day. You've put on your big wooly sweater and knee socks on and your ready to read a book. The phonograph is running this song on a vinyl while you get cosy in your fluffy white blanket. Then he steps into the living room, with his charming and mischevious smirk, pulls you up and begins slow dancing with you until you reach the front porch. When the song finishes, you two just sit down, you rest your head on his right shoulder and listen to his heart beat match the rhythm of the rain...

    Pim

    Could you explain the meaning of the lyrics to this song? I do not speak english

    Lucas Brunning-Halsall

    @Pim ahahah you're my hero

  94. Caesey Delacroix

    Oooooh~La la la, ooohhh~la la la ooohh ♥

  95. ᴠᴧᴨᴛᴧᴃᴌᴧcᴋ

    AM makes me feel like missing out on life, some parts at least.
    But to each his own life, his just sounds so lovely.

    Pim

    Could you explain the meaning of the lyrics to this song? I do not speak english

  96. bambi

    it’s suddenly 2015 again and i’m laying in bed way past midnight trying to muffle my sobs while this song blares throughout the house

  97. lee

    i get “slow dancing in a burning room” vibes from this
