Sunday Downloads - "Lay It Down" by The Rubens

Apparently I have an affinity for Aussie bands.  More than half the tunes I've downloaded lately are from Australia. (The other half, UK.)  If you like The Black Keys, you'll love The Rubens.  They have a swanky, bluesy feel.  That makes you feel like you in a heavy layer of smoke, in the back of UK dive bar in the middle of no where.  Where you can bump and grind with a hood like Johnny Castle (Twenty bonus points if you know who that is.  No internet cheating.)


To download it for free on soundcloud, go here:

(Be sure if you download, you move the file from your TEMP files and put it in an iTunes file.  Because if you ever delete your temp files, you will loose the downloads.)

Lyrics for "Lay It Down" by The Rubens

And I don’t mind
Cause I speak my mind sometimes
And I think it’s time for me to try
To lay the blame where blame lies

I’ve been searching for whoever made me feel this way
I’m not liking where it’s leading or who it’s leading too
‘Cause it’s you
‘Cause it’s you
‘Cause it’s you
‘Cause it’s you

And so I said I would speak the truth
But I didn’t think it would be to you
I guess I’m sorry I have to lay you down
But no one gets to push me around.

I’ve been searching for whoever made me feel this way
I’m not liking where it’s leading or who it’s leading too
‘Cause it’s you
‘Cause it’s you
‘Cause it’s you
‘Cause it’s you

‘Cause it’s you (repeat)

  1. I'm thinking road trip down under to hear Aussie bands live in their natural habitat.

  2. Love this song. And you're right about these guys sounding like The Black Keys. Looking forward to seeing them on tour in April.

  3. This was my favourite song of 2011. Three quarters of Aussies would not even know about this... it's brilliant to see somebody out there who is halfway around the world appreciating such a great Aussie band. xx
