[Disclaimer: I am not a musician. I can sing. I remember most of the recital piece I played on the piano when I was 6. But I’m not a musician. I know what I like and what I don’t like and what will likely be the soundtrack when I arrive in hell.]

I didn’t immediately love The White Stripes. But the more I heard, the more brilliant I realized Jack White is. I guess they’re not for everyone… but then, no one is.

They have lots of songs from which to choose… I narrowed it down to three… Fell In Love With a Girl (the whole video is made of LEGO!)… Seven Nation Army… but… they’ve truly made it when they’ve appeared on The Simpsons.

I hope you’ll watch the video… then I hope you’ll watch the clip from The Simpsons.

I had a brain that felt like pancake batter

other w artists worth a listen
Weezer — This song… it was the first I Weezer song I ever heard. I still love it… “If you want to destroy my sweater / Hold this thread as I walk away / Watch me unravel I’ll soon be naked / Lying on the floor, I’ve come undone…” Undone – The Sweater Song

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

  1. I’m a HUGE Jack White fan! All of his incarnations are amazing. Check out The Dead Weather too. Yes, there’s a female involved, but it rocks. He’s a super talented dude. 😃

    There’s a video with Jack White and The Edge and Jimmy Page. Both look confounded when they’re trying to learn some licks from Page. The old man still has it! BTW, LOVE Weezer!

    Fantastic! Jack White is incredibly talented and dare I say – visionary? It’s beyond music, more like performance art! Love this! (Weezer, too, I’d have been equally excited if you’d featured them!)
