I really appreciate this wonderful post that you have provided for us. I assure this would be beneficial for most of the people.
This article gives the light in which we can observe the reality. This is very nice one and gives indepth information. Thanks for this nice article.
I actually just got the vinyl of 'Is This It', its the original US artwork and such, but NYC Cops is actually on this record. Do I have some sort of extremely early version of the record?
NYC Cops is cool!
Great post, you have pointed out some fantastic points , I likewise think this s a very wonderful website. Relationship Tips by Top Tele
I choose NYC Cops, even I love When It Started
its hard to choose. nyc cops is probably my favorite song of all time so i gotta go with that but when it started is so fudging awesome plus you have to take into account and be really impressed that they wrote that song in a hurry and im pretty sure it was while they were on tour. but you cant even tell cuz its such a good song! it pains me to choose : (
New York City Cops for sure.
When It Started is one of the few songs by the Strokes that I actually dislike. (The other is 15 Minutes)
Both are great songs. If I was at a concert and I got to pick them to play a song between those two, I'd say "New York City Cops" because of the energy that comes with the song. Any other time I would choose "When It Started" and oddly enough, for the same reason. I love the mellowness of the song. It's a beautifully written song and I am particularly fond of the bass line.
NYC cops is better. first because the lyrics are awesome and second because that's the first song of the Strokes that I learned in Guitar and Drums.
nyc cops cause its the original and way btter than when it started imo.
I don't know both songs are great...
WIS. It's so cozy and enigmatic..................
But NYCC suits ITI better, it's punky.
if i had to choose, id pick new york city cops, its such a great song for it not to be heard and on the album, i love the beginnin when julian screams then laughs, adorable but when it started is one of the top songs on this albunm
Well New york city cops without doubt. Don't get me wrong, When It Started is still a good song, but can't match the greatness of New York City Cops, which is my second favourite song behind Last Nite, from the album.
If I bought the American version of Is this it, then When it started wouldn't be my second favourite song. lol. Wow, trying to justify my view is making me out to be a ridiculous man, I'll stop.......
(new york city cops) ;)
I like them both, but I listen to When it Started more. It stands out a lot more from the other Strokes songs as compared to NYC Cops, even if NYC Cops is a slightly stronger, musically.
love them both but I think NYCC is so cool live! they go crazy when playing it.
both songs sucked.
but i do remember them playing nyc cops at radio city music hall back in 2002 with the white stripes. the only reason that version rocked was because jack white (in his PRIME) killed it. killed it. killed it. if only he were attractive i would have weted my panties.
That song makes me really happy. I don't know why.
I never get bored of it.
nyc cops. the uk album as a whole, much better artwork, and the way julian screams in the beginning of nyc cops is so raw and electrifying. the sole reason why i spent the extra bucks for the uk release rather than the american.
New York City Cops. It's miles better. And when the DJ plays it on a night out, you can't help but go crazy.
I adore it.. for some silly reason.
I like NYC cops because it's fast and has catchy riffs and When it started has this great phrase "Why oh why?! I don't know" :D
But i would say i like NYC cops more :)
[b]yep, this song makes wnat to shout with Julian .. so much energy[/b]
NYC Cops for sure, one of the best tunes on the LP (Euro version of course). I dig When It Started, but NYC Cops is badass, especially the pre-chorus part, choice!
NYC cops cause its just awsome and true....just a tad.....and when it started is "ok" :ugeek:
New York City Cops is soo much better i think...
"ahh :!: ... i mean, ah :!: :!: ...no i didn't mean that at all!"
This is pretty funny and shows hows what talented songwriters The Strokes are...
As we know they took NYC cops off the album because of 9/11, so Jules had to scrape together When It Started in like one day and the band had to learn and record it straight away.
Its funny because a song that Jules wrote in one day is better (according to some) than one he may have spent a while writing...
I like When It Started because Julian lengthens almost every word in the chorus but New York City Cops is just one of those epic songs that makes you feel ... umm good.
Damn they're both equally good
tough one. i think NYCC is a far stronger song and if it wasnt for 9/11 when it started would have been one of the lost treasures so it probably edges it on that. but being british i havent listened to when it started to such an extent as the other so i kind of like it more in that way.
"Nyc cops" has more action drive in it! compared to "When it started" WIS feels more like a story
is being told shake your worries.
and I also think that 9/11 has a fair share to do with "when it started". I mean it is the 9th song out of 11 tracks.??? :oops:
nyc cops is better. when it started is kind of forgettable.
When It Started because it was the first Strokes song I heard. 8-)
i totally vote for NYCC, i love julian's little shouts in the intro :) (<- these smileys freak me out a bit)
when it started is pretty good too though...
"even thouhg it was only one ngiht it was fucking strange"
NYC Cops obviously, When It Started is good but a weaker song and never would have existed anyway if not for 9/11...think about it, When It Started exists, because of 9/11. At least that's what I think I remember..because they had to do it really quick in the studio immediately after so they could take Cops off the album.
i would choose new york city cops because i like when the strokes perform it live, i especially liked it when they performed it at the summersonic festival in '03
I would say When It Started by a mile- don't get me wrong, NYC Cops is a great song too, but I find Nikolai's bass work on When It Started to be fantastic.
Awww, your son is adorable, Nat. :D
I hate to choose, but I'd say New York City Cops. I guess it's just more my style and upbeat and exciting, but they're two completely different songs so I like them for different reasons.
[b]he has shorter hair now but he's still a strokes fan ;), his second fav is " cartoon music ..."from Albert's album [/b]
He's so cute!
[b]i don't think one is better but I have a thing for NYCC coz it's my baby's fav ;) and still now
I'd say When It started because I like Nick's guitar solo on WIS more than his solo on NYCC. But thats like asking me to decide between pepperoni and cheese
(can you tell which one is which?) They both have different qualities that make them awesome.
I choose NYC Cops. It's the first that I've heard, I really love that song! It's one of my favorite in the first album.
But When It Started is a great song too! The choice is so cruel! Both of the songs are awesome.
