Song of the Day #3,123: ‘Hypnotize’ – The White Stripes

white_stripes_elephantHere’s a quick throwaway track from The White Stripe’s 2003 smash Elephant, the album that introduced the world to ‘Seven Nation Army,’ to the future delight of stadium-goers all over the nation.

This was the duo’s fourth studio album and the first that captured my attention. I never got into Elephant as much as the band’s next two albums but this one is certainly worthy.

I want to hypnotize you, baby, on the telephone
So many times I called your house just to hear the tone
And though I knew that you weren’t home
I didn’t mind so much cause I’m so alone
I want to hypnotize you, baby, on the telephone

I want to spin my little watch right before your eyes
You’re the kind of girl a guy like me could hypnotize
And if this comes as a surprise
Just think of all those guys that would tell you lies
I want to spin my little watch right before your eyes
I want to hold your little hand if I can be so bold
And be your right hand man ’til your hands get old
Then when all the feeling’s gone
Just decide if you want to keep holding on
I want to hold your little hand if I can be so bold
If I can be so bold
If I can be so bold

    This sounds like a punkified version of the Beatles’ “I’ll Cry Instead.” Not really my thing though.
