Jack White: Love Interruption

Instant classic. The first single off of Blunderbuss, Jack White’s solo debut, with great Nashville musicians, features an all woman band, very stylish in this video, in long dresses and high hair, harking back to Bo Diddley’s band in the 60s.

The album is now out on iTunes, and expectations are confirmed: “I’m Shakin'” quotes the master: “I’m Bo Diddley – You got me shakin’!” The album has the full Jack-White range of styles. Nice.

I’ve read that White is planning to go on tour with two bands, a female and a male one, and on the day of the concert he’ll decide which one to play with. Fun!

Jack White: Love Interruption

I want love
To roll me over slowly
stick a knife inside me,
and twist it all around.

I want love to
grab my fingers gently
slam them in a doorway
put my face into the ground.

I want love to
murder my own mother
and take her off to somewhere
like hell or up above.

I want love to
change my friends to enemies,
change my friends to enemies
and show me how it’s all my fault.

I won’t let love disrupt, corrupt or interrupt me x 2
Yeah I won’t let love disrupt, corrupt, or interrupt me anymore.

I want love to
walk right up and bite me
grab a hold of me and fight me
leave me dying on the ground.

And I want love to
split my mouth wide open and
cover up my ears,
and never let me hear a sound.

I want love to
forget that you offended me
or how you have defended me,
when everybody tore me down.

Yeah I want love to
change my friends to enemies,
change my friends to enemies
and show me how it’s all my fault.

Yeah I won’t let love disrupt, corrupt or interrupt me
I won’t let love disrupt, corrupt or interrupt me
I won’t let love disrupt, corrupt, or interrupt me anymore.
