The Oil Slick: Three Songs Dishing Out Tough Love
The White Stripes
"You Don't Know What Love Is (You Just Do As You're Told)" -- The White Stripes
You don't know what love is, you just do as you're told. Just as a child of ten might act, but you're far too old.
Jack White has never been known to hold back on a topic, and this song shows him so incensed at a relationship that he has to turn it into a boot-stomping guitar frenzy. An ode to subservience, the song acidly demonstrates that pissing off a man with a microphone is never a good idea.
