"Mad Sounds" as written by Alex Turner and Alan Smyth....
Mad sounds in your ears, they 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, they make you get up and dance
They make you get up
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
Then out of nowhere somebody comes and hits you with an
Ooh la la la, ooh la la la
Ooh la la la ooh
Ooh la la la, ooh la la la
Ooh la la la ooh

You got those mad sounds in your ears to make you get up and dance
Mad sounds in your ears, they make you get up and dance
They make you get up

    General CommentOne of the best surprises in AM to me. This is just an amazing filled with feeling ballad.

    To me it's simple. It's just about how a good music can bring you up when you're feeling bad for no reason.

    General CommentIt's one of their bests, there's so much velvet underground influence in the song.

    Pretty sure it's just about a songs you hear and just go mental for, even if you're on a night out and can't be bothered, you hear an amazing tune and you just can't help but "get up and dance". Much like any AM tune haha : P
