Weekly Jam (Contd. – Tuesday)

More More More!

Icky Thump leave you wanting more? Then look no further, as cory-graham.com presents the 2nd installment of our week-long tribute to The White Stripes! Today we’re going to thrust the codpiece of rock directly into the air with the 2nd track from the new record , You Don’t Know What Love Is (You Just Do As You’re Told).

You Don’t Know… has the feel of an old-fashioned, southern rock ass kicker. The overpowering guitar crunch sounds like Bad Company’s Shooting Star, while the bridge sounds like every great White Stripes song you’ve ever heard. I’ve become completely addicted to this one, playing it on repeat nearly all day and gradually learning the words. Which, I’d say, is one of the stronger points of the song. It’s a fantastic sing along jam, anthemic and ready for the stage.

It should feature prominently in the set lists of upcoming shows, and should turn places like Bonnaroo into beer-fueled dance parties by the 2 minute mark. It’s the perfect song for an encore, or to open the show… or to play three or four times in the middle.
