Alcoholiday

Teenage Fanclub

Track #10 from the album Bandwagonesque


 Main Author's Notes

Possibly the centerpiece of the album, “Alcoholiday” finds the band in a much rougher, difficult place. If “December” was McCartney, than “Alcoholiday” is pure Lennon – rough, sloppy, desperate, and some strategic use of profanity – the classic “baby I’ve been fucked already” line in the chorus. It’s still immensely melodic, almost naive in the way it describes a breakup – “There are things I want to do, but I don’t know if they will be with you”, with some gorgeous melodies as always. It ends in a somber conclusion – “what I’ve done, I leave behind me/I don’t want my soul to find me” – before jumping into a lengthy guitar solo to top it off. An absolute classic.
