Riff: The Strokes – “Happy Ending”

Mar 27, 2013

Say it all/Just get it all off your chest/Shake it up/500,000 times/Say no more/We don’t believe anything/Teenage angst/Come all ages

from Happy Ending lyrics by The Strokes

At least they’re consistently half-assed glam and 1986, Casablancas just, not, quitting his falsetto game, continuing to muddle his choppy lyrics in ambiguity, indifference and anger. Just one big giant drag it took two-handfuls of tracks to mash the sandwich together appropriately; [LISTEN].
