#34. "Lonely Boy" – The Black Keys
Album: El Camino
This video got featured in last year's Top 100 Favourite Music Videos of All Time list getting to a very respectable 56th place - mainly because it's so fucking brilliant. Honestly, if you've not seen this video, just watch it. Watch it NOW!
Thank you. As for the actual song, it's just the Black Keys at their best. Incredibly bluesy but in a hard rock kind of way, the song is so catchy and simple, a bit like the video in actual fact. The main riff is just so freaking cool and it's the glue that holds the song together. I don't mind admitting however that the video makes the song so so much cooler, sometimes it's the way it is with music, visual aid emphasises the strong points of a song, and this music video does just that.
Here's the video if you want to hear it!
