Anyway, The White Stripes (or the record company) do allow embedding. And that is one of the reasons that you are seeing them here today. Another reason is that they are a damned good band. Jack and Meg White (and their ambiguous relationship) are a force of nature. While their sound has graduated from their garage rock revival roots to a bit more of a polished product in their more recent efforts, they still bring it in a consistent manner.
Like a lot of folks, my first introduction to the band was their White Blood Cells album in 2001 and the single "Fell in Love With a Girl". The video became pretty famous as well. An early American effort from French auteur Michael Gondry. I like the Legos.
The next video is from their massively successful Elephant album from 2003. "Seven Nation Army" is a song that will always remind me of my father who passed away that year. He was in the hospital for about three weeks there at the end, and every day that I would visit him I would hear this song on the radio on the way there and on the way back. Sometimes twice as it was a pretty long ride. It's a pretty good song too.
The last video today the opening track from their 2005 album, Get Behind Me Satan. Which is a pretty badass title for an album, if you ask me. "Blue Orchid" is one of my favorite songs that the Stripes have produced to date. The video is pretty badass too.
Have a great weekend everyone!
Note: Remember to play the Bug-Eyed Trivia Challenge every day. Meg White says do it to it.
