Reckless Serenade

By |

Lead Monkeys man Alex Turner was inspired to write this romantic tune, from the Suck It and See album, by a band not exactly famous for creating romantic tunes. "It's just a love song, I suppose," Turner said. "In terms of the sound, I guess some of the stuff we were listening to was like the Pixies." For the album as a whole, Turner channeled other influences besides the Boston indie rockers. "I wanted a good song foundation on this one, so that meant listening to Nick Cave, John Cale, Lou Reed, [David] Bowie, Leonard Cohen."
