#9 Animal Nitrate

#9 Animal Nitrate – Suede

Brilliant 3rd single by Suede. Excellent vocals (as always) from Brett Anderson. If you don’t know what the title is on about then you probably shouldn’t and if you do know you’re lucky if you have all your heart left. Bernard Butler was still with the band then and the guitar riff is one of my all-time favourites (speaking as a guitarist). Really, this is a band which does not get enough credit world-wide; total class.

Lyrics

Like his dad you know that he’s had
Animal nitrate in mind,
Oh in your council home he jumped on your bones
Now you’re taking it time after time

Oh it turns you on, on, now he has gone
Oh what turns you on now your animal’s gone?

Well he said he’d show you his bed
And the delights of the chemical smile,
So in your broken home he broke all your bones
Now you’re taking it time after time

Oh it turns you on, on, now he has gone
Oh what turns you on now your animal’s gone?

What does it take to turn you on, on,
Now he has gone?
Now you’re over 21?
Now your animal’s gone?
…animal, he was animal, an animal.
