Hamptons Song of Summer #93

“Can’t Stand Me Now” by The Libertines

The Libertines‘ greatest hit, this song nearly reached number one on the UK singles chart, but stalled at second place. While it’s not a universally known song in the United States, “Can’t Stand Me Now” is well worth tracking down and adding to your summer playlist.

With the combined talent of Carl Barat and the ever-disastrous Pete Doherty, this is a melodic, romantic and rather sweet tune—perfect for the quiet moments of the high season. Curl up in a beach blanket with your sweetheart and enjoy at your next bonfire under the East End stars.

Have we enough to keep it together?
Or do we just keep on pretending 
And hope our luck is never ending
