Turn Up The Volume! says: To my ears one of the best Suede tracks ever,
challenging in sound and vision, an epic, flamboyant and electrifying anthem!…

Note: then guitarist/co-songwriter Bernard Butler once said that musical inspiration for ‘Metal Mickey’ was 60s hit ‘The Shoop Shoop Song’ and that the guitar solo was influenced by The Kinks’ timeless cracker ‘You Really Got Me‘…

Well she’s show showing it off then
The glitter in her lovely eyes
Show show showing it off then
And all the people shake their money in time
She sells heart she sells meat
Oh dad she’s driving me mad come see

We shake shake shake to the trumpet
And through the slippery city we ride
Skyline swine on the circuit
Where all the people shake their money in time

She sells heart she sells meat
Oh dad she’s driving me mad, come see
