Helicopter - Bloc Party

Helicopter

Silent Alarm
indie indie rock rock alternative british


"Helicopter" is a song by British indie rock band Bloc Party. It was first released as a single from their 2004 EP Little Thoughts on October 25, 2004 in Europe and released again on February 21, 2006 in the US. It was rumored to be about George W. Bush being elected president of U.S.A., but the band has denied this, with lead singer Kele Okereke telling press it was partially about himself. There are two videos for the song. A European video was produced, filmed in black and white, featuring shaky and fuzzy shots. But in the U.S., the video for "The Pioneers" was edited and used as the video for "Helicopter". "Helicopter" is featured in several video games (FIFA 06, Burnout Revenge, Marc Eckō's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure, Project Gotham Racing 3 and as a playable track in Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock and Guitar Hero: On Tour). Portions of the song have also been used in television shows (Malcolm in the Middle, The Friday Night Project) and films (Grandma's Boy, Yes Man and the surfing film Campaign 2).


Bloc Party are an indie rock band which formed in 1999 in London, England. The band currently consists of Kele Okereke (vocals, guitar), Russell Lissack (guitar), Justin Harris (bass, vocals) and Louise Bartle (drums, vocals).

Empty
Running on
Bravado
As if to say, as if to say
As if to say, he doesn't like chocolate
He's born a liar, he'll die a liar
Some things will never be different

Stop being so American
There's a time and there's a place
So James Dean
So blue jeans
Gonna save the world
He's gonna

Are you hoping for a miracle?
Are you hoping for a miracle?
Are you hoping for a miracle?
Are you hoping for a miracle?

Three out of five, three out of five (it's not enough)
Six out of ten
Better luck next time
Just like his Dad, just like his Dad (the same mistakes)
Some things will never be different
Hungry and dumb, hungry and dumb (so wait in line)
Queuing up for some more junk food
It's not my fault, it's not my fault (just this once)
They're getting so much younger

Why can't you be more European
Bastard child of guilt and shame
Bury your head in the sand
I'm thinking six, six, six
A frigin six

Are you hoping for a miracle?

Are you hoping for a miracle?
Are you hoping for a miracle?

It's not enough.
