It’s been a few weeks, but this will be the second in my irregular series about songs that have started my day.
I really like the Black Keys. I dig the whole garage band vibe that they have co-opted. They can hardly be accused of being originators and of all the bands who have delved into this style, they are certainly one of those bands.
Little Black Submarines is from the bands latest LP, El Camino. I’m not sure if it’s the second or third single. It’s amazing to think that some bands can still release an album containing multiple singles. So many albums are a single and filler or re-mixes.
Anyway, I woke up in the middle of the night, or more precisely, early Monday morning. I think it was Monday morning, it might have been Tuesday morning. Either way, I woke up and had the chorus of this song running through my head. I love when that happens. Does it happen to you too?
The funny thing was when I got in the car and it was the first song that came on the radio. I had left the radio tuned to XM Radio’s Alt Nation channel and the song was a little less than half way through – right in the middle of the first chorus. Freaky, huh? I know!
I love how music effects us and wonder if we can truly understand to what level it does. I’ve been accused of talking in my sleep, and this episode makes me wonder if I sing in my sleep too. That would explain the nightmares!
