What rock song is this?
July 2, 2011 11:00 AM   Subscribe

Help! What guitar-filled rock song has the lyrics "won't tell a soul" as the refrain, I think? It is a male singer - I couldn't tell if the song was old or new. My Goog-itsu is failing me.

The guitar was pretty loud. It half reminded me of the Black Keys. Anybody recognize this song? I think some of the other lyrics were something like "I see you", but I'm fuzzy already and only confident about the relatively slow sung "won't tell a soul". Could have been don't, but I think it was won't. Any ideas?

The Replacements' "Don't Tell A Soul" comes to mind, but I don't have it with me so can't speak to a particular song. It's a great album, regardless.

I wonder if you were listening to the same radio station as me, because I'm sure I heard this less than an hour ago, and there was a song by the black keys played near it. I'm trying to figure out what it is now also.

I'm not in Austin, but what station did you hear it on?

Honestly I don't know but it was some kind of commerical station that mostly played alternative music from like the late 90s or early 2000s. It was the only station I could get in clearly on the hearing-protection-earphones I had on, working outside.

It was probably 101x. See it on their recently played list anywhere?

Here, check out this lyrics search for "tell a soul" and see if you can find it on there.

Not Katatonia either. Still looking through 101x & now lyricsg. It was a good sounding song. It reminded me of the Black Keys. It was something that if you heard it you could appreciate the lyrics. The "won't tell a soul" part was sung slow, and that was pretty much the refrain, I think. I caught the tail end of the song.

Queens Of The Stone Age - Lost Art Of Keeping A Secret?

The end refrain is "Whatever you do, don't tell anyone", which is fairly close.
