The Stone Roses - I Wanna Be Adored

The atmospheric opening track of 1989's eponymous debut album by The Stone Roses is among the best tracks on an album that - to my ears - is slightly overrated. I'm not saying it's without qualities, and I acknowledge its importance and influence, but the fact remains that I was never a huge fan. I still appreciate several of the band's songs of course, and "I Wanna Be Adored" is simply gorgeous. I love the repetitiveness of it, the monotony, the sudden outbursts of guitars, and the overall somber mood. If only the rest of the album had been as good as this...

Watch and listen
