definition: white-knuckle
1 adj In a fairground, a white-knuckle ride is any large machine that people ride on which is very exciting but also frightening.
ADJ n
...white-knuckle rides such as the rollercoaster.
2 adj A white-knuckle experience is something that you find very exciting but also very frightening.
ADJ n
...a hellish white-knuckle ride through the heavy London traffic.

In the lyrics of White Knuckle Ride Jay Kay is singing about " Pressure"..I am guessing he means the pressure of music business . all the fans , press, etc have all these expectations and to come back into the spotlight he gotta deliver!

'WHITE KNUCKLE RIDE' LYRICS:

Yeah....gonna make it better
Ooohhh Yeah
Yeah....gonna make it right

Here it is
There's a way to make it better
It gets you down
It's the pressure (pressure)
I'm serious
Trouble genies (??) on the way
Got a little something for ya
It's the pressure (pressure)
It gets ya.
Now it really ain't what you know [??]
But I'm giving it away
I can't let this pressure go
This pressure's here to stay, yeah

CHORUS:
Yeah (White Knuckle Ride)
Gonna Make It Better (White Knuckle Ride, I'm On It Baby)
Ooh Baby
Yeah (White Knuckle Ride)
Gonna Make It Right (White Knuckle Ride, I'm On It)
It's not so easy to control (Pressure)
It's not so easy to control (Pressure)
There's always an easy way to make it better

There it is, there it is
Couldn't change it if I wanted
Can taste it all the time, it's the pressure (Pressure)
Yeah hey, oh baby
Say we're two alike [??]
Don't know if I can recover (Don't Know If I Can Recover)
Got me 'round it's little finger (Got Me By It's Little Finger)
Pressure (Pressure)
Whoa Whoa Whoa there it is
Couldn't change it if I wanted to taste it all the time
So step into the light
Don't know if I can recover when I taste it all the time
Taste it all the time yeah

REPEAT CHORUS 2X

Took a White Knuckle Ride Baby

it pretty much sums up what I do when I get stressed out...

nothing better than going for a ride in a fun car to put a smile on your face...

(at least that's my take)

My first car (which I still own), is to this date, the only car that has the ability to truly scare me...

Soundjunky! Hahaha! :lol:

Yeah, I can relate to the speed thing too -I do like to drive fast! And not because I'm upset!
But I love to jam to music while driving. I can't figure out people who can drive in silence :shock: !
I'm not much on the details of the cars, though!

When you're really stressed out and scared on a ride (car, train, plane, anything) you grab a hold of something really hard and grip so hard your knuckles turn white.
