niallon – Use Somebody

When Kings Of Leon released they’re massively successful album “Only By The Night” a strange thing seemed to happen. All of a sudden they had a legion of new fans after years as indie darlings and I can proudly say I was one of those fans. At least I was a fan of the album anyway. Many say they “sold out” (whatever that term really means) and what resulted was incredibly accessible tracks like Sex On Fire, Revelry and of course Use Somebody.

The first time he heard it my father described Use Somebody as a ‘real rock song’ and I don’t think I’d even attempt to find a better description. It may be a bit generic, a bit straightforward, but it incredibly efficiently succeeds in conveying a central point while never sacrificing intellect at the same time. There was a more straightforward way to write this song, a way to make this a song more appropriate for a plain Jane pop act but it carries enough smarts to rise above that. As always, watch, like, share, subscribe!

12 years ago I attended one of the best gigs I have ever been to. Red Hot Chili Peppers at Slane Castle, arguably the last time Slane, and the band for that matter, held their prowess for which they were so revered. On that day, Dave Grohl and his Foo Fighters provided support, riding high on their One By One tour. Who better then to bring back the old Slane, the real Slane than the very same band. This weekend, Slane was born again. Continue reading Foo Fighters Storm The Castle
