|Silent Alarm track listing|
"Like Eating Glass" is a song by Bloc Party from their debut album Silent Alarm. It is the first track on the album. The song is one of their most popular amongst fans. The lyrics, as is typical of the band's early work, are poetic and ambiguous, and deal with feelings of being "completely disoriented" in failing relationships. A fan-made music video for the song was uploaded to YouTube and received over 500,000 views. The Black Strobe remix was released as a split single with The Futureheads by Oxfam. The song was also featured on the playlist of Tony Hawk's American Wasteland.
The Black Strobe Remix was released on a 10" picture disc split single (by Bloc Party & The Futureheads) given away free by T-Mag. It came included with the book The Beat about "the art of rhythm", which included contributions from Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters, Paul Thomson of Franz Ferdinand, Charlie Watts of The Rolling Stones, as well as Matt Tong of Bloc Party & Dave Hyde of The Futureheads. It has Shy Child's remix of the song "Decent Days And Nights" by The Futureheads on side A, with Black Strobe's remix of "Like Eating Glass" on side B. The Black Strobe Remix is available for download from the Bloc Party fan-site www.BlocParty.net.
