"I Want Love to ...."

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
And Put my Face into the Ground

Bob Dylan said once that lyrically, every line in a song has to be as good as the first line. Rarely does a lyricist achieve this. On Blunderbuss, with his song Love Interruption, Jack White both meets and exceeds this standard. The music is even more of a revelation.

My faith in the next generation of iconoclastic musicians is strengthening.
