We discuss one of the Sheffield band's most-loved songs, and ponder whether it's one of the best album tracks ever. As Arctic Monkeys announce the reissue of their Mercury Prize-winning debut album on vinyl, we're looking back at one of its most-loved tracks. Appearing alongside the likes of I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor and Fake Tales Of San Francisco on Beneath The Boardwalk - their unofficial collection of demos which were handed out at gigs and shared on the internet between fans - the infectious track was already a favourite amongst hardcore fans before their album hit the shelves. With the use of Northern vernacular in its title, you might think the track would struggle to achieve universal appeal. But boy would you be wrong! Mardy Bum, which in the North and the band's native Sheffield refers to someone who's moody or moans a lot, tells the story of a long-term relationship on the rocks. The track, which sees Alex Turner addressing his subject head on, describes the moment he realises he's about to get it with both guns blazing.

A stiff dick has no awareness How's a lifetime of garments and 3 hour meetings sound. I don't mind long hour days but not having a companion during weekends. He sealed my husband and I on our wedding day. When I complain that I spent two days without seeing him and when he arrives home just keeps on answering his phone as if he was at work The other day a colleague called just to complain about a patient of theirs at 8: These people have no sense of privacy. Best to all of you, and may God Fate help us all. Does she understand that for a long-term relationship to succeed that the partners must treat each other as equals. He's emotionally threatening me to keep his infidelities a secret. My dream in life as cliche as it sounds is to be happy, and to raise a family - be one of those home mums who goes to school meetings, and award nights, and bakes cakes for their kids school fares.
