Number 931 - Stone Roses


Number 931

Stone Roses

"I Wanna Be Adored"

(1989)
.
.
.
Genre:Alt Rock
This song is in the early infancy of the genre "", it is where """ leaves the cot and the safety of its nappies behind. Soon it would grow up and become the Adult as we know today.

"Since the Stone Roses were the nominal leaders of Britain's "Madchester" scene -- an indie rock phenomenon that fused guitar pop with drug-fueled rave and dance culture -- it's rather ironic that their eponymous debut only hints at dance music. What made the Stone Roses important was how they welcomed dance and pop together, treating them as if they were the same beast. Equally important was the Roses' cool, detached arrogance, which was personified by Ian Brown's nonchalant vocals. Brown's effortless malevolence is brought to life with songs that equal both his sentiments and his voice -- "I Wanna Be Adored," with its creeping bassline and waves of cool guitar hooks, doesn't demand adoration, it just expects it."

Rolling Stone Top 500 Songs ranked this song at Number (Nope, They hated it) and the Album ranked at Number (They don't acknowledge Alt Rock silly)

This song has a crowbarred rating of 54.6 out of 108
