E’ il secondo singolo estratto da El Camino (2011), settimo album inciso dal duo americano The Black Keys. Gold On The Ceiling è un brano in perfetto stile garage rock, composto da Dan Auerbach e Patrick Carney assieme a Brian Burton, alias Danger Mouse del duo Gnarls Barkley, il quale da anni co-produce i lavori della band.
L’uscita del singolo è stata caratterizzata da grandi plausi da parte della critica musicale, venendone spesso citata l’efficacia del riff di tastiera e del gusto retro, un pò anni sessanta: a tal proposito in una recensione sul Los Angeles Times, il giornalista Randall Roberts ha scritto che Gold On The Ceiling “suona come se fosse sempre esistita”.

Proponiamo la tablatura del pezzo, nella quale il riff di tastiera è trasposto su tab per chitarra ed il testo segue la partitura musicale.
