5. “Crying Lightning”
Alex Turner has a talent for describing people and their behavior, and “Crying Lightning” is no exception. The song has a lot of childish imagery, which relates to the naïve impression that the main character of the song gives to other people. However, the person who Alex describes is actually very manipulative, and people soon realize that this individual is dangerous. Using candies and magic as metaphors to describe an unhinged person is a clever move on Turner’s part, and it showcases his expertise in songwriting.
