The Darkness Girlfriend Single

With second record "One Way Ticket To Hell… And Back" not breaking the Top Ten of the album chart, those who predicted the fall of The Darkness seem to be vindicated in their judgement. However their popularity globally seems as strong as ever, having recently visited Australia and Japan, they'll spend the summer rocking the European festival circuit.

With Justin Hawkins' falsetto at an all-time high, "Girlfriend" encapsulates the fun of The Darkness' music, all while carrying a message of reprieve from having cheated on your partner. It's upbeat and has a chorus that a toddler could cope with… but you can't help feel the band are running out of ideas musically. The accompanying video is amusing; with Hawkins paying tribute to eighties' flick "Flashdance".

Fans of The Darkness' first album might have been a bit disappointed with the second offering, but believe me, it grows on you ( excuse the Darkness pun!!)"Girlfriend" is a catchy little number, that yes, my 4 year old does sing along to, but nevertheless, i like it! The whole album is full of good songs, albiet "English Country Garden" is a bit repetitive, but i do like the line about Farmer Giles' prize winning marrow! All in all, you have to take the Darkness as what they are. They are bringing the fun back to Rock n Roll, and if you don't like it,don't listen to it, and stop ya whingeing. I LOVE THEM!!!
