"2013" as written by Alex Turner....
Well the times are so a'changing
Baby even when it's live
You can press pause and rewind

You knew it would go amazing
But is this what you had in mind?
Oh there's nothing you can't find

It's two thousand and thirteen
All across the galaxy
It's two thousand and thirteen
(Yeah)

On the back of a transmitter
There's a little shiny fruit
And it's coming after you

As for Instagram and Twitter
She got caught in both lassoes
And neither one will cut her loose

It's two thousand and thirteen
All across the galaxy
It's two thousand and thirteen
(Yeah) Yeah

So baby take a walk with me
Past flying cars and time machines
There's magic like you won't believe, no

It's two thousand and thirteen
All across the galaxy
It's two thousand and thirteen
All across the galaxy

    My InterpretationFor me, in this song the lyrical speaker wants to critizes a little the times in which we live in.
    The first stanza talks about how the technology has been able to watch a live event, and then pause it. He thinks that is amazing, and there's nothing you can't find on Internet.

    In this part: 'On the back of a transmitter there's a little shiny fruit and it's coming after you
    As for instagram and twitter she got caught in both lassoes
    And neither one will cut her loose'

    Alex is clearly talking about how a cellphone with its apps can trap people into thinking all day about posting something on the Internet.

    In the bridge, he says that it doesn't matter how much technology we live with: nothing can beat the human touch and direct communication.

    I like this song because Alex talks about how technology can help us but in the same way, it can make us slaves. A nice critique to modern society.
