My Music Monday
For all the praise heaped upon the White Stripes - and Jack White - I never got it or understood it. I like about two of their songs. And I get that it is just me, but to my ears, he has extremely limited talent.
Ooooh, he's edgy because he produced an album for Loretta Lynn. Ooooh. (perhaps you sense my sarcasm with the too "ooooh"s.)
For no good reason, I liked Jack's sister / wife / ex-wife....depending on which version of that story they went with. It's not like she pretended to be some great drummer. She was much more Chris Partridge than Neil Peart. Even Karen Carpenter ran rings around Meg's drumming ability.
That said, I did - and do - like the White Stripes' "Seven Nation Army". I like the rhythm section more than the guitar. It's one of the times that Jack White's vocals work well with the song and arrangement.
The video is ok. I remember liking it better long ago. It's still interesting, but wears out it's welcome halfway through.
