Song of the Day #4,705: ‘Next Girl’ – The Black Keys

I’m always annoyed when a Black Keys song comes up on Random iTunes Weekends, because I don’t particularly care for the band and I never having anything interesting to say about their music.

Today’s song is no exception, but it does have a noteworthy video. It depicts a bunch of bikini-clad women fighting over a dinosaur puppet lip-syncing the song. A disclaimer runs along the bottom of the screen claiming that the band hated the video but the record label released it anyway.

Apparently the disclaimer is true. The band actually did dislike the video and said they would only allow it to see the light of day if they could slap a derogatory message on it. The label agreed, and here we have it.

[Verse 1]
Well the look on the cake it ain’t
It ain’t always the taste
My ex-girl she had such a
Such a beautiful face
I wanted love
But not for myself
But for the girl so she could
So she could love herself

[Chorus]
Oh my next girl
Will be nothing like my ex-girl
I made mistakes back then
I will never do it again
Oh my next girl
She will be nothing like my ex-girl
It was a painful dance
Now I got a second chance

[Verse 2]
Oh her beautiful face and her
And her wicked ways
And I am paying for her beautiful face every day
All that work over
Over so much time if I
If I think too hard I might lose my mind
[Chorus]
Oh my next girl
Will be nothing like my ex-girl
I made mistakes back then
I will never do it again
With my next girl
She will be nothing like my ex-girl
That was a painful dance
And I got a second chance

[Outro]
Oh my next girl
Yeah
My next girl

    The video certainly makes the song more interesting.πŸ˜€ Meanwhile, maybe it’s long past time to purge this album from your collection – or you can put up your own disclaimer that this album remains at the behest of the Random iTunes Fairy and you take no responsibility for its songs appearing on your blog.😁
