Love Interruption Lyrics by Jack White

Love Interruption is Jack White’s first 'proper' single as a solo artist. Since his divorce from The White Stripes he has released a large volume of material but it has all been with other artists. His efforts with The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather were notable examples.

Love interruption is from Jack’s solo album, Blunderbuss.

Love Interruption’s lyrics are a strange tale of love involving desires to be stabbed and murdering mothers.

The b-side to Love Interruption is Machine Gun Silhouette.


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 door way, put my face into the ground
I want love to, murder my own Mother
Take her off to somewhere, like hell or up above
I want love to, change my friends to enemies
Change my friends to enemies and show me, how it’s all my fault

I won’t let love disrupt, corrupt or interrupt me
I won’t let love disrupt, corrupt or interrupt me
I won’t let love disrupt, corrupt or interrupt me, anymore
I want love to, walk right up and bite me

Grab a hold of me and fight me, leave me dying on the ground
And I want love to spin my mouth wide open
And cover up my ears and never let me hear a sound
And I want love to forget that you offended me
Or how you have defended me
And everybody let me down
I want love to, change my friends to enemies
Change my friends to enemies and show how it’s all my fault

I won’t let love disrupt, corrupt or interrupt me
I won’t let love disrupt, corrupt or interrupt me
I won’t let love disrupt, corrupt or interrupt me, anymore

The Final Big Day Out

I learnt to play guitar because of this guy

Jimmy Jangles Reviews the Final Big Day Out

20th January, Mount Smart Stadium, Auckland, NZ

Well, the 2012 BDO turned out to be the final Auckland one as the economics of the event were no longer there. The immediate response to that was book better bands.....

This year the BDO organisers changed things up by reducing the main stages to only one with a second, smaller stage for 'in between' acts. This was an epic fail and totally ruined the feel and vibe of the event when compared to past years. Living End aside, there were no truly quality bands until  Kasabian, Soundgarden and Noel Gallagher made their marks on the day.

This is not to say other bands like Cage the Elephant weren't great, it was more of where's the bands like New Order, Placebo, Rage Against the Machine, Marilyn Manson and Nine Inch Nails on the set to support Soundgarden on the mainstage??

Here's my thoughts on the bands I saw:

  •  Soundgarden - loved them - they played a greatest hits package with a few less well known songs. Kym got all the right notes, Cornell was in fine form, that drummer from Pearl Jam was stonkin' and the bass was heavy as a rock to your head.
  • Kasabian - never listened to their music before but they sounded like they were the business. The crowd loved them and they had a sweet sound. 
  • Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds - Noel was the reason why I went to BDO and I went home a happy man. He played a good mix of Oasis and solo songs in his set but the inclusion of three b-sides was enough to make this fan die happy.
  • My Chemical Romance - I love these little fuckers (despite their emo tag) it was a real shame they had terrible sound. The Black Parade was a real highlight. 
  • Cage The Elephant - nice, fiesty band from Kentucky. Played their guts out - sounds like they had some tunes I'd better check out!
  • Gin Wigmore - she's got the sass and the tunes to back it up. Like MCR she suffered a terrible sound mix. Her cover of The Animal's House of the Rising Sun was a most bizzare thing but it kind of worked, and at the least was a performance that will stick out in the memory.
  • Unknown Mortal Orchestra - saw one song and they were shit. The Mint Chicks should never have broken up.
  • Battles - Saw two songs, they had a damn good groove going on. 
  • Cut Off Your Hands - who the fuck booked this band?
  • Mariachi El Bronx - who the fuck booked a Mariachi band? Completely the wrong music for a main stage BDO band but the lead singer was entertaining and the music sound good. 
  • Beastwars - utter fucking rubbish. Not mainstage material. The front man must have taken too many drugs in his youth. You'd have been better off getting a locally popular covers band.
  • The Living End - I love this band so was pleased they played a few classic hits. Good energy all round and they did a cover of Nirvana's Breed with Jon Toogood (from Shihad) - an absolute classic BDO moment, one I'll never forget. 
  • Tony Hawk Skate Jam Show - Tony and his boarders got some great air time and actually had a big audience than Midnight Youth which is not thattttt surprising.
  • I Am Giant - we got filmed for their video they were doing but didn't appear to make the cut. Sad face! Never heard them before but they played some good songs at the end of their set after a same same start. Lead Singer seemed have what it takes to be a good show man - they suffered from being on shitty smaller main stage.
  • Cavalera Conspiracy - I don't care if these were the boys from Sepultura, this kind of music sucks.
  • Regurgitator - I like their old stuff better than their new stuff but these guys were pretty shit live. They sound nothing like their recorded music - playing rap songs about licking assholes has its place but when you have bigger hits and you're not playing them, you've missed the point of Big Day Out. 
  • Parkway Drive - music was a similar style to Cavalera Conspiracy but was was impressed that they were a pretty tight unit. 
  • Midnight Youth - I thought this band was over-rated before I heard them and nothing changed for me. Lead singer seems like a real dick. 
  • Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds Review by Jimmy Jangles

    The second song on Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds is titled ‘Dream On’. It’s a punchy tune that suggests Oasis fans can dare to dream on that Noel can continue to produce great music without the vocal contribution of estranged brother Liam (and vice versa as Beady Eye’s debut album wasn’t too shabby).

    If you’ve ever wondered what Oasis would be like without Liam, you only ever had to listen to some of that band’s classic b-sides like The Masterplan and Talk Tonight. Now, High Flying Birds however is your chance to here some A-side material in quantity. Similar in tone to Dig Out Your Soul, High Flying Birds runs along at an even pace backed by a crew of usual suspects such as Dave Sardy and Marc Rowe.

    Noel appears to have progressed as a lyricist – they seem to be slighty more introspective than standard Oasis fare – whereas Wonderwall and Champagne Supernova’s lyrics were meanders slowly down the ‘hall of whatever’, songs like The Death of You and Me and X strongly hint at real moments that have occurred in Noel's life.

    The Death of You and Me (lyrics) is a nice wee tune, harking back to arguably Oasis’ last genuine hit, The Importance of Being Idle. Underneath the song is a nice basic guitar chord progress but it's wrapped in the usual sounds of Beatles-esque horns and trumpets. The more you listen, the more you’ll perhaps come to enjoy this as a classic Noel Gallagher song.

    ‘AKA What a life’ is a cracking single. Governed by a strong piano riff and drum beat, Noel is in fine form. If one had to compare it to a prior Oasis track, Falling Down jumps out, though I feel this is a better song. It has a good video too – The Death of You and Me has a matching video. Watch them together for an interesting story featuring Noel’s buddy Russell Brand.

    Stop the Clocks (remember that name?) is a fine album closer - clearly written  by Noel when Oasis was still Oasis and it should have been a song sung by Liam - it's screaming out for his vocals.

    Thanks to the development of the MP3, these days artistic output is often consumed song by song – fans would be doing themselves a dis-service if they only listened to the singles – this is a fine album, consistently enjoyable the whole way through – with no filler tracks as the odd recent Oasis album has been guilty of.

    Noel should be proud of his debut solo effort, positive sales suggest so as well. 

    I'm hanging out to see Gallagher's Big Day Out show Auckland next week!

    Did you hear Noel Gallagher has a new album out? Do the Damage is a b-side to the lead single, In the Heat of the Moment.

    Fathers and Mothers - What U2 has to say about them

    baby feet with adult feet u2 lyrics

    U2 songs about Mothers and Fathers

    All good song writers tap into the history of their family tree for lyrical inspiration now and then.

    There's been plenty of popular songs that feature lyrics about parents and their children. A classic example is the ever popular Cat Steven's Father and Son.

    It's with no great surprise then that Bono has chosen to reveal insights to his feeling about his family in a few of U2's songs.

    Here's some thoughts about a selected few...


    Mofo was sixth single flogged from the supposedly terrible Pop album. The lyrics in part refer to Bono's beloved mother Iris, whom he lost at the age of fourteen.

    Mothers of the Disappeared

    The Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo, is a unique organization of Argentine women who have become human rights activists in order to achieve a common goal. For over three long decades, the Mothers have fought for the right to re-unite with their abducted children. It was this work that inspired Bono's lyrics.

    Sometimes You Can't Make it On Your Own

    The lyric was written by Bono as a tribute to his father, Bob Hewson, who died in 2001. Bono sang this at his funeral. In the video for the song it was prefaced with the following from Bono "My father worked in the post office by day and sang opera by night. We lived on the north side of Dublin in a place called Cedarwood Road. He had a lot of attitude. He gave some to me - and a voice. I wish I'd known him better."

    On Your Own shares similar parental sentiments as found in Kite from the All That You Can't Leave Behind album.


    The October album was definitely Bono channeling and challenging his spiritual side - Tomorrow sees him exploring his thoughts around his mother's death and the spectre of her possibly meeting Jesus.

    A song from the Grammy Award winning album, Zooropa, The first verse of this the First Time hints sentiments of falling in love for the first time or perhaps truly, madly, deeply falling for someone - the lyric "I have a lover, a lover like no other" suggests the later perhaps is true.

    The second verse refers to the love of a brother who would do anything for his sibling - the word brother could easily stand in for friend here as well. 

    The final verse talks of the love between a father and son that perhaps has gone sour. Collectively these three different settings make for a great story and makes you wonder what kind of person is telling this story and how do those elements relate to one another? Indeed, there's almost a hint of the Prodigal Son story surrounding the entire fabric of the song. 

    I believe in Father Christmas

    Written by Greg Lake, I Believe in Father Christmas with a view to making a critque about how Christmas had changed from being a celebration of peace on earth and goodwill to all men, into one huge and disgusting orgy or shopping.

    This next one may be a bit of a cheat but the video of Song for Someone features a father being released from prison to find his daughter waiting outside to pick him up.
