The Libertines Lyrics
The Libertines, in some form or other, started life as
Carlos Barât (guitars and vocals) and Peter Doherty
(guitars and vocals) way back in 1996. They were aiming to
be the best band in the world. They weren't quite there.
Hailing from the East End of London, the cockney two-some
were writing loads and loads of songs and playing acoustic
gigs in London pubs. Years passed, with friends and
bassists and drummers coming and going, but it wasn't until
2001 that things started to kick off.
Carl and Pete were joined by bassist John Hassall More...

Review about The Libertines songs
NWLibertine | Reviewer: Anonymous------ About the song Horrorshow performed by The Libertines
Should have changed the world we live in... the fact that they were touching distance of worldwide acknowledgement but never quite got there becuase of their own madness is exactly what they preached about the world we live in only now ten years on from this album and these songs and that feeling of coming out of a dark grey scene to a colourful world of with, humour , love, romance and genuine honesty is a million miles away in todays music: tahnk god its just a few of us who truly admire it and embrace it makes me feel like im on the right level
RE the guy below me | Reviewer: Anonymous------ About the song Up The Bracket performed by The Libertines
pete doherty is a poet, probably a better lyricist than carl, although you can't have one without the other, their lyrics compliment each other; on the same hand, carl is a better guitarist than pete (pete could only play a few chords and sing when they met)
Baseball cap | Reviewer: Gus------ About the song Time For Heroes performed by The Libertines
The baseball cap line has nothing to do with American meritocracy replacing English hereditary class structures. It's about the people the Arctic Monkeys were also talking about when they mentioned "trackie-bottoms tucked in socks".
Johnny Borrell's only contribution to music | Reviewer: Buckley------ About the song The Boy Looked At Johnny performed by The Libertines
Album filler but the Johnny in question is Johnny Borrell of Razorlight/skinny white jeans fame. Fairly self explanatory, it's about a guy taking offense to Borrell not remembering his name after partying all night with him & freeloading his narcotics. Not 100% on the New York City reference since that took place in Camden but it's possibly just a tacked on line from another song.
Pete's slacking around) | Reviewer: TheRoughman------ About the song I Get Along performed by The Libertines
I think version from the album is better. They didn't sing together "Time for Heroes", "Up the bracket" or "Music when the lights go out" for example. So it sounds more authentically when Carl is singing "I get along" or "France", or "What Katie did"
Broken love song | Reviewer: Bosiegirl------ About the song Can't Stand Me Now performed by The Libertines
I think this is one of the saddest songs ever written, and I can't listen to it easily.Two troubled souls who can't get past their problems, despite it being obvious to a blind man that they love and need each other. The hardest thing you'll ever learn is how to love and be loved in return...
Precious | Reviewer: Yimi------ About the song Time For Heroes performed by The Libertines
This song is so wonderful, I love that inner strong of lyrics and music, and that feeling of pride and riot.
But the most I like this song is the elegance!
I am peruvian and I listen them since so several years, but they always sound fresh to me.
this song is lovely | Reviewer: zooey------ About the song Last Post On The Bugle performed by The Libertines
This song is lovely, why cloud it with our own meanings as definitive meanings. No one will ever really know what its about except for Pete, and I'm not saying you can't try to translate it, its just that it means something different for everyone. I just think you shouldn't only think of your translation as the one true meaning, listen to everyone's opinion before you develop your own.
Are you serious? | Reviewer: Roughman------ About the song Up The Bracket performed by The Libertines
Yeah, you are right. You're just drunken idiot. 100% of the Libertines' sound is Carl Barat. Bright guitar progressions, furious rythm playing and explosive solos are only Barat's merit.
And yes, I agree that Pete is good even in acoustic(thanks to Carl)...but if Libs sounded like this - I passed by such music. Pete is smug junkie. Babyshambles are rubbish. Carl's songs are too sad. But he's my hero. Libertines Forever. Please, someone blow Pete's mind
i disagree | Reviewer: fadsg------ About the song What A Waster performed by The Libertines
This is a great piece of poetry.
One commenter compares it to Oscar Wilde's poems, say it's not very good poetry because it's not verbose enough. If you think verbosity is what makes a poetry great, then I'll laugh at you, it is far from the most important part of a poem. Many of the world's greatest poems are written with elementary words. What makes a poem great is also the themes (and how relatable it is), the the rhythm and rhyme, and the story. What make this song lyrics great, among many things, is that it has great rhythms, and a very witty story, not to mention melody of the song itself is also great.
