Sometimes a Random iTunes Weekend selection pops up and I just got nothing. No feelings about the band or the song one way or the other. No anecdote about how the selection made it to my music library in the first place. Nothing.
Such is the case with today’s SOTD, ‘Mind Eraser’ by The Black Keys. Fine song, reminiscent of every other Black Keys song I’ve heard, but that’s it.
When I need to replace her
I am the mind eraser
Anything goes, yeah, anything goes
Got this sin in her brain
But she ain’t gonna see me again
See me again, this I know
But oh, deep down I can’t let go
Oh, don’t let it be over, over oh
Oh, don’t let it be over, let it be over, over
Seen me stack up my woes
Into a wall, around a rose
Now I’m the rose, now she knows
Oh, it hurts so, and I can’t let go
