And again
And again
And again
And again

I’ve suffered from insomnia for the best part of a decade and naturally songs of that subject matter often strike a chord. ‘5:55’ is about being awake at 5:55am and realising that you’re not going to sleep at all tonight. In this version, Metronomy’s odd-sounding, giallo-tinged, twangy synths and Gainsbourg’s melancholic vocals perfectly capture that time of night.

And I’m specifically talking about this remix. The original ‘5:55’ sounds far to happy for my tastes. Metronomy are pretty phenomenal remixers and this is one of their finest.
