Shimmy Shimmy Ya: Black Keys edition

the_black_keys_1378933759570If I felt ashamed about taking so long to put together a Best of playlist for My Morning Jacket, than I feel down right dirty for taking so long to do one for the Black Keys. I don’t know the Keys, not personally, but if I did, if I were to have the chance to talk to them, I’d apologize. Give them a hearty my bad. Then I’d just hope Pat didn’t start making fun of me on Twitter.

With the release of “Fever,” the first single off of their upcoming album. Turn Blue, the fire that burns inside of me for the Black Keys was essentially doused with a 40 ounce of kerosene- sweet, sweet kerosene from Nashville via Akron, Ohio. Do you ever find yourself wondering if Lebron James and the Keys ever frequented the same clubs, or even the same Denny’s?

Anyway, here is a playlist of Giddy Up America’s favorite Black Keys’ tunes. The one hiccup is that their most recent album, El Camino, isn’t on Spotify. Who do they think they are? Not giving their music away for free?
