I really like this song.
It vaguely reminds me of Gary Glitter*. I really love the Paul McCartney style bass too. The whole song does sound a bit like The Beatles, come to think of it.
It’s also very cinematic. I’ve noticed that about recent music- bands sound more and more like they’re writing with the hope of being used in a movie (or in the case of the Black Keys- in sports telecasts). And movie ares becoming more and more like music videos. I would say I suspect that we’re approaching a great convergence of the two arts, but we’re more or less already there.
I don’t know if that is a good or bad thing- I’d say it’s going to be some of both. And there was a time when people watched Musicals on film, so it’s not all that new of an idea.
