Riff: Franz Ferdinand – “Right Action”

Aug 27, 2013

Sometimes I wish you were here, weather permitting/Right thoughts, right words, right action

from Right Action lyrics by Franz Ferdinand

Possessing a similar indie-disco swagger to “Take Me Out,” the album’s opener sees Kapranos attempt to persuade a lover who has done him wrong to come back home whilst at the same time muttering under his breath that past events are neither forgiven nor forgotten; [LISTEN].
