Album: Nights OutReleased: 2008
Asked by American Songwriter magazine what the first song was that he ever wrote, Metronomy frontman Joe Mount replied: "When I first got my computer and started music, the first songs I ever tried writing, I was imagining that I would get some kind of R&B girl to come and sing them, so I was always writing songs about boys. I was always writing songs about cars. I was using R&B clichés. So I'd write songs about boys and cars, imagining that one day a girl would be singing them."
"The first proper song I ever wrote in which I used big words was a song called 'Radio Ladio' which is on an album called Nights Out. That's a really simple song about seeing a girl in a club. They're all kind of R&B themed. Seeing a girl in a club and thinking she's attractive. You should check it out, it's great."
