English rock band Arctic Monkeys’ ‘Dancing Shoes‘ was played on the soundtrack of the sports comedy Ted Lasso last night at the beginning of the episode — Ted Lasso, Season 2, Episode 6, “The Signal“.

Arctic Monkeys’ ‘Dancing Shoes‘ is from the band’s debut studio album Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not.

It was named Best Album of the Year by Time magazine, won the Brit Award for Best British Album, and was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album (losing to Gnarls Barkley’s St. Elsewhere).

Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not has also appeared on many best albums of all time lists in the last 15 years.
