[playlist] Hump Day Power Play (9-12-2012)

Arctic Monkeys Mix

Getting back to some hits, this week's HDPP is a collection of my favorite Arctic Monkeys tracks. It's crazy to think back to my first Monkeys concert experience in early '06. They played the "old" Crocodile in Seattle to a crowd of maybe 150 fans. I paid a mere $10 for my ticket months before the show (a friend in the UK told me I should), and by the time the day of the concert rolled around, Arctic Monkey fever had infected the States. Swarms of people were offering $100 for my ticket to the sold-out show at the door. I would have been a fool to sell it, as that night was simply magical. You could get a sense that these guys were destined for something bigger.

Interestingly, though, the band played everything off of Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not, and apparently ran out of material for an encore... Now fast forward to today; they have so much great material, I had much trouble trimming this playlist down. Hopefully my condensed version is to your enjoyment.
