"Teenage Kicks" as written by and John Joseph O'neill....
Are teenage dreams so hard to beat?
Everytime she walks down the street
Another girl in the neighbourhood
Wish she was mine, she looks so good

I wanna hold her, wanna hold her tight
Get teenage kicks right through the night

I'm gonna call her on the telephone
Have her over 'cause I'm all alone
I need excitement, oh, I need it bad
And it's the best I've ever had

I wanna hold her, wanna hold her tight
Get teenage kicks right through the night, all right

Are teenage dreams so hard to beat?
Everytime she walks down the street
Another girl in the neighbourhood
Wish she was mine, she looks so good

I wanna hold her, wanna hold her tight
Get teenage kicks right through the night, all right

I'm gonna call her on the telephone
Have her over 'cause I'm all alone
I need excitement, oh, I need it bad
And it's the best I've ever had

I wanna hold her, wanna hold her tight
Get teenage kicks right through the night, all right

I wanna hold her, wanna hold her tight
Get teenage kicks right through the night, all right

    General CommentBrilliantly anthemic, well it's my anthem anyway. It represents everything that is good about youth

    General CommentThis is one of my all time faves. My dad was a punk and I've grown up listening to this. All of their music reminds me of sitting in the car when my dad's driving, because he always played this kind of music.

    You're right about the word classic. This is one of the times it can be used, but it's so annoying to hear some little pop band who'll be yesterday's news in a couple of months bringing out a new single and all the poppy magazines are calling it a classic, when it sounds just like every other song they ever made.

    Luv,

    General Commentim just writing to say that without the late John Peel, this song would never have been. I take my hat off to him.

    General CommentBusted are actually not 100% manafactured as you claim, nor do busted fans now know the meaning of this song.

    I know you think its big to diss on bands like Busted and that beucase I used to think it was big too until I woke up and listened that people should like what they want.

    General CommentPeople will always dis what they think is better music or who does something better. It's called preference. You know, even Ray Davies said he preferred the Pretenders version of HIS Kinks song "Stop Your Sobbing", so there is always room for someone elses interpretation of another tune. In this case, in MY opinion, there was no reason to mess with perfection. The Undertones got it right. But hey, when a song is great, others will admire it and want to re-record it. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery after all.

    General CommentI've heard this song first when I saw "Shellshock rock". It didn't want to leave my mind since then. Love it. Btw. I didn't know Busted did a cover :o? It must sound terrible.
