The Top 10 Spoon Songs & a Band Retrospective

#3 I Turn My Camera On

The first single from 2005’s Gimme Fiction, “I Turn My Camera On,” proved an important thing: the band aren’t afraid to take chances with their songwriting and production, and when they do, they can do it masterfully. People didn’t always love The Rolling Stones disco, but Spoon take it and add some Prince flavor with their classic sound from Girls Can Tell melds into a crossover hit that that was also a great song.
