What I’m Listening To on 03/02/2017: The Kooks, Naive

“I know, She Knows, I am not fond of asking.”

When I first heard that lyric I completely misheard it. Little did I know that this would lead me to discover a new band with a very classic rock/ska sound.

“True or False, It may be she’s still out to get me.”

That opening guitar riff catches your attention so well. I felt like a caught fly on the fly paper.

“How could this be done by such a smiling sweetheart?”


My wife was watching 17 Again. This is a funny movie. Far from a typical teen movie set in a high school.


This song caught my attention, stuck like glue to my auditory canal, and I’m a fan. The Kooks do a great job with this song. It was covered by others, but they aren’t even worth mentioning. Only they can sing this as far as I’m concerned. Here’s a lyric video.

And here is an accoustic version of this incredible, haunting tune!
