Current hit:    “Taking Me Back” by Jack White

Linked to: “I Wanna Go Back” by Eddie Money / 1986-87

Because:  Looking backwards is a recurring rock n’ roll theme. 

Jack White”s broad musical styles du jour can’t be pigeon-holed, and his current  single “Taking Me Back (Gently)” has two versions, one an edgy rocker, the other more rockabilly.

Both are tres original, with clever lyrics and sly humor:

When you listen to mystics
As you lay at your picnics
You’re taking me back
You’re taking me back
Good to know:  “Taking Me Back (Gently)” is on the soundtrack of the new video game “Call Of Duty Vanguard.”

Charting:  #8 the Alternative format and #33 on Adult Alternative.
