The White Stripes have a whole stack of killer tunes but I decided to go with the song that introduced me to Jack and Meg, welcome to the Hotel Yorba, enjoy your stay.
This tune came out back in the day when no one was really sure about their relationship, were they brother and sister, were they a divorced married couple. No one knew, but boy did it get us talking and cause many a drunken debate. Hotel Yorba caught my attention back in 2001, and a love affair with The White Stripes was ready to start.
With the exception of Dave Grohl, Jack White has to be one of the busiest musicians of the past decade, with more side projects and super groups than pairs of red jeans hanging his wardrobe.
The Hotel Yorba is an actual hotel in Detroit and this filmclip was partly filmed in room 206, which is now used as government housing, but Jack White say's they're now banned from the hotel for life. Wonder what they did to warrant that?
This tune has a great country vibe about it, perfect for getting boozed on spirits and dancing around your kitchen like a drunk lunatic. hehe, well it worked for me anyway.
