The Strokes - Last Nite



The first song to get much radio play for The Strokes, "Last Nite" is about a guy who leaves his girlfriend after she tells him she feels upset because he doesn't care about her. He then starts to get depressed and question his choices.


British music magazine NME placed Is This It in first place in their list of the albums of the decade. Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas said of the award:


"It's totally crazy! I don't know what that means. Does it mean it's a good musical decade or a bad musical decade? I don't know, I'm such a bad judge of my own stuff. But I thought it was great when I heard. Recording the album was fun, it was stressing, it was exciting. I think if I was to know then that I'd be having this conversation now I couldn't be more pleased. I'm restraining myself now, I don't want to get carried away, but I'm pretty damn psyched with myself. Mental high five!"



Lyrics


Last night, she said


"Oh, baby, I feel so down


Oh, it turns me off


When I feel left out"


So I, I turned 'round


Oh, baby, don't care no more


I know this for sure


I'm walking out that door



Well, I've been in town for just 'bout fifteen, oh, minutes now


And baby, I feel so down


And I don't know why


I keep walking for miles



And say, people, they don't understand


No, girlfriends, they can't understand


Your grandsons, they won't understand


On top of this, I ain't ever gonna understand



Last night, she said


"Oh, baby, don't feel so down


Oh, it turns me off


When I feel left out"


So I, I turned 'round


Oh, baby, gonna be alright


It was a great big lie


'Cause I left that night, yeah



Oh, people, they don't understand


No, girlfriends, they don't understand


In spaceships, they won't understand


And me, I ain't ever gonna understand



Last night, she said


"Oh, baby, I feel so down


See, it turns me off


When I feel left out"


So I, I turned 'round


Oh, little girl, I don't care no more


I know this for sure


I'm walking out that door, yeah
