The Top 10 Spoon Songs & a Band Retrospective

#4 The Beast and Dragon, Adored

The opener off Gimme Fiction, The Beast and Dragon, Adored is a great song that is both classic rock and roll and lyrically a perfect summation of good music.

I got a feelin it didn’t come free
I got a feelin and then it got to me
When you don’t feel it it shows they tear out your soul
And when you believe they call it rock and roll
This is just one of the many great songs on the record. When your 4 songs deep into an album and every song is still great you know you’re onto a new classic. Britt Daniel shows off his noise guitar work again that was hinted at earlier on “Change My Life.”
