Song of the Day

Today’s song of the day is the Libertines – Can’t Stand Me Now.  From 2004’s The Libertines, the band was fronted by Carl Barat and Pete Doherty, and one never knew how long they could stay together.  Two albums worth seems to be the right answer at this point.  This was their most successful single, reaching no. 2 in the UK, and produced by Mick Jones of Clash fame.  Its indie rock, with influences of punk and garage – the guitars are not polished, nor are the harmonies – but the two sing well together, and this song describes their touch and go relationship.  We can only hope for a third go.
