Anglo For Your Ear: The Libertines’ “The Boy Looked At Johnny”
Not the best Libs song, but “The Boy Looked at Johnny” is probably the most fun with its pub singalong chorus (“La dee die, la dee die, la deedy). The ’77-esque abandon of this song surely inspired everyone from Kaiser Chiefs to Hard-Fi. Pete Doherty has rarely sounded more sloshed, which is really saying something. From 2002’s landmark album, Up the Bracket.
