Black Keys save Whistling in Pop

The Black Keys are pretty hip name to drop right now. Fair enough, the Blakroc album was darn good and their new one ‘Brothers‘ is pretty good too.

The standout track – and single – is ‘Tighten Up‘, and this features whistling. I can’t think of too many good, or even decent, examples of whistling in pop music.

So far I have compiled this list:

‘Dock of the bay’

‘Jealous Guy’

‘Wind of change’

..I’m struggling a bit here.

Listening again, I’m not sure the whistling isn’t played on synth.
