What initially seems like a low-slung blues re-working of the hideous ‘You Can’t Hurry Love’ eventually reveals itself, I think, as a tender tale of a mother-son relationship finding its heartbeat with confessions of platonic love: “you’re the one, that I adore”. That, or it’s about a ladyfriend of some form or other. Heck, the title should speak for itself.
A few shuffles later and the song’s gone right the way around, over and done with thank you very much; while The Black Keys are never the most dynamic of bands – their two-piece make-up is a handicap in this respect – this is truly laid-back fare, ideal fodder for just kicking back of a muggy Sunday afternoon and popping the top off a cool beer. The lyrics take something of a backseat to the persistent drrrum-dum-dum plod of the guitar (yes, the guitar seems to plod), and the piece slides effortlessly to its conclusion without even a bead of sweat escaping its makers’ brows.
And is it good? Oh for sure. But anyone who’s anyone knows that already, and has its Magic Potion parent LP. If you’re yet to pick it up, go crazy...
