Alternative love song for the week: Take Over the World by The Courteeners

the courteeners falcon Listen to the tender, opening strains of this song and tell me if it doesn’t make your heart melt, even just a bit.

I looked into her eyes and I swore
I’ve never written a cliche before
And I’ll probably never do so
She was beautiful though

This is then followed by a bold and almost-anthemic sounding invitation to the girl of his dreams:

I think it’s time for me and you to take over the world

And then comes the most heartbreaking line of all.

Because I’m true and I’m real and this is how I feel.

Take Over the World by The Courteeners, a single off their 2010 album Falcon, will be released on April 19th of this year as a CD, two 7-inch vinyls and download release.

From The Courteeners‘s bio: Hailing from Manchester and featuring a frontman, Liam Fray, with a penchant for both talking up his own positive attributes and getting into verbal scraps with other bands, the Courteeners have gotten regular comparisons in the U.K. music press to the leading lights of three previous waves of Manc Brit-pop, the Smiths, the Stone Roses, and Oasis. And to be fair, the band’s alternately jangly and bombastic brand of indie guitar rock bears the influence of all three acts, as well as comparisons to contemporaries like Arctic Monkeys and Kasabian. The Courteeners formed in Manchester in 2006, when the 22-year-old Fray — already becoming well known around town for his solo acoustic singer/songwriter gigs — brought three of his childhood friends to form a proper band: lead guitarist Daniel Conan Moores, bassist Mark Cuppelo, and drummer Michael Campbell.
