Title: “Lonely Boy”
Artist: The Black Eyes
Written by: Dan Auerbach, Patrick Carney, and Danger Mouse
Source: “El Camino” Album (2011)

2011 is an excellent year for music. The Black Keys first won me over with “Tighten Up” and earlier this year with “Howlin’ For You,” but off their upcoming album “El Camino,” “Lonely Boy” has already become my favorite of their singles. I am anticipating this song to show up in many marketing advertisements. I vow to see this band before the end of the year. I am crossing my fingers to get tickets to the Night 2 of KROQ’s Almost Acoustic Christmas with all my favorite bands in one night (minus Blink 182, who plays the first night, and no Taking Back Sunday or Paramore).

Here’s the list if you’re interested:

  • The Black Keys
  • Cage The Elephant
  • The Naked and Famous
  • Death Cab For Cutie
  • Jane’s Addiction
  • Florence + The Machine
  • Grouplove
  • Foster The People
  • Mumford & Sons
  • Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds
