Riff: The Wanted – “Glad You Came”

Oct 10, 2012

Turn the lights out now, now I’ll take you by the hand/hand you another drink, drink it if you can

from Glad You Came lyrics by The Wanted

Featuring a clever bit of wordplay, The Wanted briefly threatened One Direction’s status as the UK’s biggest boyband with this accordion-led Balearic anthem which cemented their laddish reputation thanks to a series of corny chat-up lines more suited to a Club 18-30 holiday circa 1989.
