Jet - Are You Gonna Be My Girl
With its opening seconds giving a nod to The Supremes' You Can't Hurry Love, so Jet signal that their last single, the ballad, Look What You've Done, was almost a fluke. Getting back to the grunt of blues-rock for this single, Are You Gonna Be My Girl is Jet's best release yet, better than the straight rock of Rollover DJ and the slow pop of Look What You've Done, with a chorus that's almost euphoric.
Sounding not unlike The Faces at their booze-soaked best and not far from Motown had their stripped the sound of Hitsville USA to guitar, bass and drums, Jet are clearly getting better from single to single. With Are You Gonna Be My Girl having been taken off their recent album, it's looking to be a slightly better prospect than one would have expected having only heard Rollover DJ. Now, if only there had been more like this on it...
