"Brianstorm" as written by and Alex Turner....
Brian
Top marks for not trying
So kind of you to bless us
With your effortlessness
We're grateful, so strangely comforted

And I wonder
Are you putting us under
'Cause we can't take our eyes
Off the t-shirt and ties combination?
Well, see you later, innovator

Some want to kiss, some want to kick you
There's not a net you couldn't slip through
Or at least that's the impression I get
'Cause you're smooth, and you're wet
And she's not aware yet
But she's yours

She'll be saying, use me
Show me the jacuzzi
I imagine that it's there, on a plate
You're whole rendezvous rate
Means that you'll never be frightened
To make them wait for a while
I doubt it's your style
Not to get what you set
Out to acquire the eyes are on fire
You are the unforecasted storm
Hup

Calm, collected and commanding
(Top marks for not trying)
You leave the other stories standing
With your renditions and jokes
Bet there's hundreds of blokes
That have wept 'cause you've stolen their

Thunder
Are you putting us under
'Cause we can't take our eyes
Off the t-shirt and ties combination

Well, see you later, innovator

    General CommentThe lyrics are pretty straight forward, but I'm sort of trying to figure out if the video's meant as a parody of the usual music videos, that seem to put a great focus on a plenthora of anonymous dancing girls with almost no interaction on the band's part. Notice how they're all in shadows and whenever we're show the boys, it's either from far away or an angle that makes it hard to tell who they are, if we didn't know already.

    General CommentMmmm...absolutely loving this song. I can't believe noone has posted these lyrics yet!

    The meaning's quite obvious on this one really, it's about a guy called Brian who's great at pulling women. I bloody love the title. Roll on April 26!!!

    General CommentWell a read a very interesting comment on the AM forum, about the first verse (Brian-- to -->Inovator)
    'It's a sarcastic compliment, making reference to people who dress like they have threw random gear on, when in fact it is a carefully planned outfit etc.'

    General Commentlol for some reason,I sense sarcasm in this song. I like to think that he's actually making fun of the Brian guy. Particularly with the 'see ya later, innovator!' bit.

    Love this song. Absolute genius <3

    My InterpretationI think this song was meant to be very sarcastic. It is kind of saying, "Yeah Brian, you're so cool because you get so many woman with your edgy look."

    He references the t shirt and tie as the "cool new look" which represents today's "scene" crowd. The singer is basically saying, "yeah you're cool, we get it. YOU'RE SOOOOOO ORIGINAL."

    Song MeaningI feel like there isn't much sarcasm in the song, not sarcasm but legitimate awe. I think the band were a little surprised with Brians presence, perhaps even a bit jealous. However they felt like he was a little too easy to hate, and with reason, since apparently it seemed like this Brian could steal some of their "Thunder".
