Arctic Monkeys - Star Treatment Lyrics




I just wanted to be one of The Strokes
Now look at the mess you made me make
Hitchhiking with a monogrammed suitcase
Miles away from any half-useful imaginary highway
I'm a big name in deep space, ask your mates
But golden boy's in bad shape
I found out the hard way that
Here ain't no place for dolls like you and me
Everybody's on a barge
Floating down the endless stream of great TV
1984, 2019

Maybe I was a little too wild in the '70s
Rocket-ship grease down the cracks of my knuckles
Karate bandana, warp speed chic
Hair down to there, impressive moustache
Love came in a bottle with a twist-off cap
Let's all have a swig and do a hot lap

So who you gonna call?
The martini police?
Baby, that isn't how they look tonight, oh no
It took the light forever to get to your eyes

I just wanted to be one of those ghosts
You thought that you could forget
And then I haunt you via the rear view mirror
On a long drive from the back seat
But it's alright, 'cause you love me
And you recognise that it's ain't how it should be
Your eyes are heavy and the weather's getting ugly
So pull over, I know the place
Don't you know an apparition is a cheap date?
What exactly is it you've been drinking these days?
Jukebox in the corner, long, hot summer
They've got a film up on the wall and it's dark enough to dance
What do you mean you've never seen Blade Runner?

Oh, maybe I was a little too wild in the '70s
Back down to earth with a lounge singer shimmer
Elevator down to my make-believe residency
From the honeymoon suite
Two shows a day, four nights a week
Easy money

So who you gonna call?
The martini police?
So who you gonna call?
The martini police?
Oh, baby, that isn't how they look tonight
It took the light absolutely forever to get to your eyes

And as we gaze skyward, ain't it dark early?
It's the star treatment
Yeah, and as we gaze skyward, ain't it dark early?
It's the star treatment
It's the star treatment
The star treatment

  8. lulu gomez

  9. ANother Guy

    1,1K people don't deserve this star treatment

  10. Zack Zallie

    I listened to this album all the way through while walking around an empty 4 star hotel while I'm on vacation on weekdays. It really adds the vibe to it.

  11. Pokin Ryan

    (puffs one long one in and out)
    Want a cigarette?

  12. The Notorious Artorias

    This is a great song to do coke to. I’m not saying do coke to this song. I’m just saying fuuuuuuuucccckkkk

  13. Matheus Santanna

    great song to drink wine while crying, singing and smoking cigarrettes dressed in your largest shirt and your cheapest underwear

  14. 10 K

    1984➡️2019

  15. D1tw Em1

    this is veeeerryyy difernet that AM , but still it s amazing

  16. andrea

    I started the year listenin to Alex singing "2019" now 2020 its coming, im going to end the decade listening to the song that made me cry in the concert more than i know i could cry.

    Happy new years eve,btw

    Daniel Bautista

    Same here

  17. manny heffley

    Did david bowie come back or am i trippin

  18. Кукушка и Подушка

    Guys turn on captions 😂

  19. Rapina Fire

    It sucks badly.

  20. Edgar Molina

    "Maybe I was a little too WILD in the 70's"...something about that line is just fire

  21. Maryam Assad

    Best song in their entire career

  22. Eduardo Garcia

    Pretty sure they're bigger than The Strokes now...

  23. Almaliha Qurratu Fitria

    Idk why but this makes me want to wear backless satin dress, slow dancing, drink champagne and then have sex with this song on background

  24. Bruno Quelhas

    What the fuck happened to this band?

  25. oxDestroxo

    It's funny that the first few lyrics talk about how he wanted to be one of the Strokes, and what was polarizing about their albums is the differences in each one (see : Comedown Machine).


    I actually love bands that do that, though. It's like each album fits a different mood or experience. I can see why Alex likes the Strokes so much.

  26. iris beatriz

    okay thats the best part of the song and only my opinion counts
    2:52

  27. 悪魔y n a

    so, who you gonna call?

    Affan Ash

    悪魔y n a ghost busters

  28. Rim El Gana

    Don't mind me, I'm just here for my daily dose of tbhc :)

  29. Jana Žáková

    I remember not liking the album on the first, second, even third listen.
    Now, after some time, I'm giving it another chance. And I am beginning to find pleasure in it.

    Rim El Gana

    Good luck !!

  30. Random Person

    this song just makes me feel so happy and i just don’t know why

  31. Oisin D

    Well I am listening to Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino so I am clearly at peak mental breakdown yet again

  32. OutTour

    After a good while now, THIS is the best album they have made.

    Rim El Gana

    That's exactly my opinion

  33. Cavalovoador

    Todos os dias ouvindo esta obra prima

  34. neхт day

    The only song from this album which I don't like, I don't even know why

  35. Brayan Ortiz

    Yo solo queria ser uno de los Strokes.
    Recuerdo cuando salio el album, desperte lo descargue y en el transcurso de la mañana en la escuela lo escuche y me sorprendio esperar 5 años para poder tener este album en mi parecer bastante bueno.

  36. jose campos

    Por momentos pensaba en Bowie.

  37. Eran Boazy

    *So who are you gonna call? The Martini police*

  38. Maryam Assad

    Legends , legends ..

  39. THEBAMBU64

    Best album by them so far, so fresh and new, and different...

  40. Tara McCarthy

    Leonard Cohen vibes absolutely

  41. David 04 Alcalá

    Fuck off

  42. tebbli 1

    Did everyone forget bowie died?its an obvious homage to him (and sinatra with the vocals?) in my humble and fleeting opinion, this aged very well indeed our kid.

  43. Paulina Andrea Nuñez Diaz

    I was introduced to this wonderful album ... just two days ago .... my birthday was yesterday .... a really awesome guy show me this album ... I stop telling .

  44. Tentacle Brain

    How the fuck have I not heard this

  45. Darren Rutter

    This album is fine tobacco in a pipe, good red wine swilling in a glass, naked apart from silk and fur slippers sex shit.

  46. Amy Brown

    Ngl next album is hopefully a mix of AM type of music and TBHC

  47. yeah yeah yeah

    The right song to begin the album

  48. Euge Lo Celso

    lmao i've never seen blade runner, im planning to tho

  49. Owen Wilson Sanchez

    U dont have to act like u like the album.

  50. Oscar G.

    Que disco interesante, muchos temas me re vuelan la cabeza

  51. NppingKoala

    This album has aged well

  52. Cindi Gonzalez

    I like this song but at the same time I feel like his singing is sort of annoying part of it might be his accent. Just my opinion don't kill me over it.

  53. Elainevirgo Rock

    Gracias...muchas gracias 🎧🎧🎧😍😍😍😍

  54. justanothergirl withacrazymind

    So beautifull

  55. madvibing

    This album is one of those albums that's not really an album that you have to really to listen to vibe to. its just something that you play and just think about shit. like background music to thinking.

  56. erwer werwer

    The mix is so minimalist...great

  57. violeta torres

    Apollo envy they musical talent

  58. DUR o MUERTE

    hello this song is my whole life. i dont think i can live another day knowing this song exists and not listening to it. it’s like my oxygen. the lyrics, instrumental, vocals it’s like astronaut ice cream and i love astronaut ice cream and this gives me that feeling. melty in the mouth and sweet, warm when ingested.

    thank you for listening

    JEEP McCann

    I agree about the song but astronaut ice cream is horrible

    star treatment

    Andrew Karl-Butler we all have different opinions but tell me, what is like astronaut ice cream to you? ^^ what makes you feel upset that there will be an end to it, something you wish you had a lifetime supply of?

  76. Jherson Machado

    Maybe I was a little too wild in the 70s

  77. Boop Boop

    I love arctic monkeys but this whole album is the audio equivalent of watching paint dry
    Favourite worst nightmare was peak

  78. Felix For President

    This album grew up on me way too late

  79. Diavolo El Revolucionario

    guenardo

  80. ezarel

    when this album was released i wasnt really into these kinds of songs, but one year after i feel like i finally understand the praise and the class the album has. this is now my favourite am song <3

  81. memecake factory

    Bruh worst album yet cmon. I didn't think this band could get any worse after AM.

  82. christian garrison

    Goddamnit vinny

  83. Cursed_BrianFreakingMay 123

    I dont care what people say but when I say this album rocks, *it means it rocks*

  84. Say 10
