Songs What Be Stuck In My Head: White Knuckles

I’m going to see Ok Go in concert on the 4th, apparently! So I thought I should listen to their newest album, because I still haven’t.

I was kind of disappointed.

It really seemed like they were going back to what they did with their first, self-titled album. Which is cool, I suppose, but I also don’t like most of that album. Oh No was filled with tons of seriously ROKKIN’ tracks, and Of The Blue Colour Of The Sky just doesn’t have a lot of those.

Except White Knuckles, which I have listened to constantly. (For the record, I also like WTF?)

Not only is it just an exciting piece of music (with a cute as shit music video) but the lyrics also just seems to really fit my current situation. I mean, check this shit out.

“And you can’t go back, the way you came. Round all the pieces up, but they just don’t fit the same. White knuckles. Maybe it’s not so bad.”
“So just have fun, it’s far enough. Everybody needs to sleep at night, everybody needs a crutch. But couldn’t good, be good enough? Cause nothin’ ever doesn’t change but nothin’ changes much.”

I don’t know. I like a good rocking song, but lyrics? I’m a fucking poet. Lyrics speak to me. This may not be the super-deepest song in the world, but when I’m trying to both turn my world upside down and not lose anything from how my life was before? Well, this kind of shit is important to keep in mind. Nothing ever doesn’t change, but nothing changes much. Quite a nice little line.

Anyway, I’ll just listen to White Knuckles a few hundred more times. You all have a fun day.
