Review The Song (1)

300 MPH Torrential Outpour Blues

I'm bringing back ghosts
that are no longer there
I'm gettin' hard on myself
sittin' in my easy chair
Well, there's three people in the mirror
and I'm wonderin' which one of them I should choose
Well, I can't keep from laughin'
spittin' out these 300 mile per hour outpour blues

I'm breakin' my teeth off
tryin' to bite my lip
There's all kinds of red-headed women
that I ain't supposed to kiss
And it's that color that never fails
to turn me blue
So I just swallow it and hold on to it
sponsored links
and use it to scare the hell out of you

I have a woman
'says come and watch me bleed
And I'm wonderin' just how I can do that
and still give her everything that she needs
Well, there's three people in my head that have the answer
and one of them's got to be you
But you're holding tight to it -- the answer
singin' these three hundred mile per hour outpour blues

Put on gloves, a tied scarf and wrap up warm
on this winter night
Everytime you get defensive
you're just looking for a fight
It's safe to sing somebody out there's got a problem
with almost anything you'll do
Well, next time they stab you don't fight back just play the victim
instead of playin' the fool
And the roads are covered with a million
little molecules
Of cigarette ashes and the school floors are covered
with pieces of pencil eraser too
Well sooner or later the ground's gonna be holdin' all
of my ashes too
But I can't help but wonder if after I'm gone will I still have these three hundred mile per hour, finger breaking, no answers makin', battered dirty hands, bee stung and busted up, empty cup torrential outpour blues

One thing's for sure: in that graveyard
I'm gonna have the shiniest pair of shoes

Wonderful song | Reviewer: Paul Olson | 5/26/09

The song starts off relatively laid back and mellow. The riff used throughout most of the song is absolutely beautiful, and extra flourishes are added along with it to improve the sound of it.

Meg's distinctive simplistic drumming style really does add a lot to the song. During the heavier parts, the cymbals crash constantly, as is a custom in some White Stripes songs. For the rest of the song, she keeps a simple, yet very fitting beat.

Jack incorporates many little solo sections, placed intermittently throughout the song. Some of them are screaming, distorted power houses, whereas others are either finger picked or just slowly plucked away subtly.

As for the lyrics, I have no idea what they mean. But I smile every time I hear some of the cleverly sculpted lines. They add more to the package than lyrics sometimes do, and you simply have to read them to love them.

An overall great package, I highly recommend this song to any White Stripes or blues fan. It's a true gem, and it's a shame so many people miss it.
