Released: April 2004

It seems strange to think of it now, but when Pete Doherty released 'For Lovers' in 2003 it seemed genuinely different and exciting. Up until then, he was best known for being a podgy Julian Casablancas wannabe with a penchant for talking rubbish in interviews. But 'For Lovers' changed everything. Most of all, it made people outside The Libertines' fanbase take notice for the first time. Ironically, it wasn't even written by him - though he did add the "jailer" verse to Peter 'Wolfman' Wolfe's original. In any case, Doherty makes the song completely his own by turning in the most perfect vocal of his career, sung to the backing of the sweetest music he's ever worked with.
