Money and love ain't no sure thing
You live for a thrill, you die for a dream
And when it comes around
You lay your money down (Ooh)

You got a love that's a real long shot
Breaking the bank for your new weak spot
When she comes around
You lay your money down

No one else for you to blame
But when you play that losing game
It ain't over (Ooh)
So try to ease your worried mind
Dreams come true from time to time
It ain't over (Ooh)

What are the odds if you let them know?
Win or lose, it's gonna take your soul
And you can't turn around
You've laid your money down

One up your sleeve might get you two in the chest
Hurt in your heart but they don't know that
And when she comes around
You lay your money down

No one else for you to blame
But when you play that losing game
It ain't over (Ooh)
So try to ease your worried mind
Dreams come true from time to time
It ain't over (Ooh)

No one else for you to blame
But when you play that losing game
It ain't over (Ooh)
So try to ease your worried mind
Dreams come true from time to time
It ain't over (Ooh)

No one else for you to blame
But when you play that losing game
It ain't over (Ooh)

I really enjoy the Black Keys and this track is no exception.  What disturbs me is the constant earworms I get from them, like this one from ELO.  Is it homage or cribbing? ...


It's a vaguely similar, four-note phrase in an otherwise entirely different song from "All Over The World".  Hardly "cribbing" I think; "homage" - perhaps.

I may be less of a fan but spent some time trying to figure out which ELO tune this was sounding like... always encouraging to figure out things in under an hour these days!

Great Album.

I know right.  Usually, they only book really good bands.

Years hence, this comment will seem so very meritless.  Who cares about first plays and release dates?  It's not that interesting or meaningful.  I'd rather read comments that teach me something of the artist or the song...or heck, just an interesting story about being drunk on a boat listening to this track as the sun sets...
Like this one more than most of their other tunes I've heard. ELO comment noted and perhaps that has something to do with it. A simple fun sound

14 plays during the last 30 days?  I've noticed this with a few other songs too.  I suspect the RP format is changing to include an emphasis on "today's hits".  Which is ok.
 
Bill has also sounded fresher and more engaged at the mike in the past few months too, so I guess there's an effort alive to keep RP relevant and popular.

Thanks for being 'early' on this track. Not my streaming service, but if I had a magic wand, I'd add more 'new' music to RP.  Just the good stuff, tho.



And what is your definition of  "good stuff.?"
Sorry, don't care for your autocratic rambling...

The singing/background vocals for 'It ain't over (Ooh) is similar to ELO's "All Over The World"
I dig their wild sound; so retro it seems brand new... The guitar is often as satisfyingly fuzzy and creatively expressive as Jorma K's back in the day! The Frank Zappa-style "Joe's Garage" cover pic they're rocking here's cool, too!  They seem to be at a peak!
Whoa! Released a Week from Today! RP with the sneak peek!
Anyone else hearing "Billie Jean" here?
Bass much more prominent here than their earlier stuff.
I can't believe they're playing the Troubadour in Los Angeles on May 11. 

Nice! Some new Black Keys. So far sounds promising.
