Where do we go?
And all the people, they sure don't want you to know
They don't want you to know, oh
Livin' in chains, the heart's rearranged
You gotta lure it back, all of the time
Now tell me I'm right, oh

[Pre-Chorus:]
And I got a thing I really can't say

[Chorus:]
You've got a worried mind
I've got a worried heart
You don't know what to do
I don't know where to start
You let this beat us down
Well get up off the ground
One day, I know
We've got to go, oh

Where is your mind?
The street is beating you bad
It's taken it's time, it's taken it's time, oh
Oh, where to run?
I told you to get, but you were having your fun
Now you're under the gun, oh

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus]

This sounds way too much like Liam Gallagher...
If the pre-chorus is always before the chorus...isn't it the chorus?

Beat changes don't break up the chorus...do they? 
I love them ! Guitar + drum cool and performant duo
7 ->   down to 5
Such a so beautifull song and album, really love the black keys :D
i imagine peewee herman on vocals with pulsating psychedelic background

...more than I miss the days of spandex manes and lions in tights.
At first, I thought, wow, I didn't realize so many people didn't like the BK's...then I realized it was just one person...I for one, don't think its overplayed...just overhated.{#Wink}

A guitar is just a thing.  The art is in the player.

Any qualitative statement about art is opinion.  Even if we all agree one way or the other, it is still opinion, and much more so when there is no consensus.  This is, of course (and should go without saying), my opinion, which may differ from yours.

 
There's a subtle yet significant difference between the statements

"I hate everything from this band"

and

"Everything from this band is awful".

One is clearly an opinion.  The other is put forth as some sort of tautology.  Or premise, if you will.  And it seems pretty obvious to me that that premise is false, if only because there are clearly many people who feel differently.  Otherwise all ratings for this would be '1'.

They are simply a good garage band which became famous very quickly.
They do, however, put on a very good live show. 
Having said that, I do not like this piece.

Horrible volume war production and formulaic sound make for tunes which get old very quickly. No more BK please.

Horrible. Yes.
Oh boy - I love PSD. It's a gift from the heavens.
Good tune Bill!
 Agree, it all sounds the same (tbk) ppopp wrote:

We do have PSD on iPad/iPhone. You must be using our outdated app.  Download Radio Paradise 3.0 (details here).
urgh

Good groove, but they're sure wearying it out.

 
Certainly true with this song. Sounds like a lot of other BK songs.

Too loose, low-Fi garagy for my tastes.

Maybe, but they do rock out a bit better than Coldplay.

i have this but haven't listened to it yet—-maybe i'll get a cop for the car
These guys are so good live that I am going to go see them again for the second time in 3 months,  They Rock!!
Man this has an excellent groove!
 
 
It would flow nicely into Amy Winehouse's "I'm No Good" too.  
Good groove, but they're sure wearying it out.

I love seeing the closed-minded haters, in the minority of listeners, posting against the same bands over and over again. Those bands aren't going away so maybe you should.{#Bounce}
Very annoying sound. *Changes channel*

I like the mood of this and the retro sound they do so well, but the melody is quite similar to "Dead and Gone."

Please lighten-up on how much you play this band. It happens way too much and their songs are getting very old. At least play the rest of the keys..

This is another great song, from a surprisingly great band.  One great song after another ... how do they do it?
I hear some tango in that groove....nice
Not-a-phukking-gain. Please stop playing this band so often. I love your radio station because it doesn't make me wanna switch-off as frequently as so many others, and you pick from glorious commendable selection of artists, but The Black Keys pop-up with alarming frequency, and it's getting severely moldy.
Big kisses - ppopp

I hope BillG adds the soaring opening track from this album, "Weight of Love," to the playlist. It's by far the best thing I've heard from these guys to date.


a definite grower....
groooooveeeee baby  
Nice boys, pound those drums and rock on like old school! very cool
First!
