The Strokes worship The Velvet Underground, I almost thought Lou Reed was singing this song. God even the album cover pays homage to the VU.

Julian cuts this one up! The way he comes in, how he comes in, the structure of the lyrics. Prolific, sexy rock n roll song! Shit jams!
Andres Pretell
Velvet Underground influence pretty much?
Andromeda
In my opinion, Angles comes before First Impressions of Earth.

Up on a hill is where we begin\nThis little story a long time ago\nStop to pretend, stop pretending\nIt seems this game is simply never-ending\nOh, in the sun, sun having fun\nIt's in my blood\nI just can't help it\nDon't want you here right now\nLet me go, oh, let me g-g-g-g-g-g-go\n\nLeavin' just in time\nStay there for a while\nRolling in the ocean\nTrying to catch her eye\nWork hard and say it's easy\nDo it just to please me\nTomorrow will be different\nSo I'll pretend I'm leaving\n\nOur fears are different here\nWe train in A-V-A\nI wish you hadn't stayed\nMy vision's clearer now, but I'm unafraid\nFlying overseas, no time to feel the breeze\nI took too many varieties\nOh, in the sun, sun having fun\nIt's in my blood\nI just can't help it\nDon't want you here right now\nLet me go\nDarling let me g-g-g-g-g-g-go\n\nLeaving just in time\nStaying for a while\nRolling in the ocean\nTrying to catch her eye\nWork hard and say it's easy\nDo it just to please me\nTomorrow will be different\nSo this is why I'm leaving

I like the strokes, but they are stealing just a bit too much from the Velvet Underground to be able to call this song original

Just like they ripped off Is This It intro from Pixies' Where Is My Mind. Good song, but I can't help noticing that similarity
