Answering Who Wrote Each Song On The Strokes’ ‘Angles’

by Eric Van Dril · 53 comments

Angles was billed as the first collaborative Strokes record, yet it wasn’t clear who wrote what when the album was released on March 22.

Until now.

ASCAP has posted the composers of every song by The Strokes. For Angles, the songwriting credits are as follows…

  • Machu Picchu — Julian Casablancas and Nick Valensi
  • Under Cover of Darkness — Casablancas, Valensi, Albert Hammond Jr. and Fabrizio Moretti
  • Two Kinds of Happiness — Casablancas
  • You’re So Right — Casablancas and Nikolai Fraiture
  • Taken For A Fool — Casablancas, Moretti and Valensi
  • Games — Casablancas, Hammond Jr. and Valensi
  • Call Me Back — Casablancas and Valensi
  • Gratisfaction — Casablancas, Moretti and Valensi
  • Metabolism — Casablancas, Moretti and Valensi
  • Life Is Simple In The Moonlight (link) — Casablancas

I’m not terribly surprised by the results, as we knew Nick and Julian — the lyricist — were the primary songwriters on the album. Does anything stand out to you?
