The Strypes - You Can’t Judge A Book By The Cover

The Strypes - Blue Collar Jane Blue collar Jane lives in 54
Always has a teacup when she knocks upon my door
She just wants some milk and sugar but all I want is her
Blue collar Jane, my girl, you’re causing quite a stir

All we could be, b-l-u-e
C-o-l-l-a-r J-a-n-e, oh baby please,
If you could see, then you’d agree
That I love blue collar Jane and she loves me

Blue collar Jane, always in your town
Never wears her hair up cause she’s always dressing down
You got a 4 wheel drive? You know that’s how she gets around
Blue collar Jane, my girl, you knock me to the ground

All we could be, b-l-u-e
C-o-l-l-a-r J-a-n-e, oh baby please,
If you could see, then you’d agree
That I love blue collar Jane and she loves me

Watch out!

Blue collar Jane, always in your town
Never wears her hair up cause she’s always dressing down
You got a 4 wheel drive? You know that’s how she gets around
Blue collar Jane, my girl, you knock me to the ground

All we could be, b-l-u-e
C-o-l-l-a-r J-a-n-e, oh baby please,
If you could see, then you’d agree
That I love blue collar Jane and she loves me
That I love blue collar Jane and she loves me

The Strypes ‘Blue Collar Jane’

This right here is the first original offering from a band who’ve been making waves with their first EP 'Young, Gifted & Blue’, which consisted of covers of old rhythm & blues tunes from all corners. Those truly raw interpretations of older tracks is the reason there’s so much buzz around these four lads right now, with a celebrity following of Dave Grohl & Elton John to boot.

With an average age of sixteen & an almost Beatles-esque vibe, these likely lads from Ireland have shown that not only can they nail covering an original of someone else’s work, but that they can also write some pretty catchy material too, with 'Blue Collar Jane’.

The track is set for release April 22nd, with an album also in the pipeline for release in the near future.

Even in the future the story begins with once upon a time… {listen}

My friend her parents were watching TV yesterday and her mom said “hey Siki, you talked about The Strypes a few days ago right?” and I answered “Uh yes” and then she said “Well, they’re on TV now, so if you wanna see it..”. And I walked very quickly to the TV, sat on a chair and just moved along with the music and it was so awesome!!! And they looked so cute!!

Track of the Week

The Strypes - Blue Collar Jane

I literally have not been able to get this out of my head for days now. Scratch that, I haven’t been able to get all Strypes songs out of my head. I feel a bit late to the party on these but still early enough to really enjoy the ground swell of support and energy that is following them. This is just pure classic rock'n roll and blues. If you didn’t know this was a new band you would swear that it was from the 50s/60s. But they bring a modern high-energy twist to it. Seriously, go and check these guys out, they haven’t got one bad song!
