The White Stripes

Recommended Posts

I just got a copy of The White Stripes new album "White Blood Cells" and suffice to say its really good. I cant really put them into a genre, because although id like to say there good old Rock n Roll.. certain songs just dont seem to fit into the cliché vocal/guitar harmony of rock.. And its not really going to fit into punk, so ill leave that up to whom ever to appropriately title it.

 

But if you get the chance to download, buy, rack or just get a hold of a copy I suggest you give it a listen. Theres a handful of out standing tracks on the album, "I Cant Wait" and "Dead leaves on the dirty ground" seeming to be the ones that immediately come to mind...

 

Any ways any one else like the band?

fuck the haters.

 

first, the mini-rant-

this is absolutely an "i'm cooler than you because i've been into this band for 3.2 months longer than anyone else" band. many people like them just because of the current underground buzz or whatever, they just hop on the bandwagon and play cool guy/gal... i think the other side of that coin is that it turns a lot of people off to them immediately. they hear the hype and dismiss the band without giving them a chance.

 

i love the white stripes, though. i have tickets for their show on the 30th down here, and i'm amped. the new CD is great. their other albums are also really good. definitely music you've gotta be in the mood for.

The White Stripes are one of those bands I like just because of the way they sound, not because they're cool, or they're on MTV all of a sudden, or because liking them gives me 3 more Indie Rock Cred Points. Good fucking music.

FOR RAILROAD!!

 

Hotel Yorba

 

I was watching

with one eye on the other side

I got 15 people telling me "don't move"

I got moving on my mind

 

I found shelter

in some thoughts turning wheels around

I said 39 times that I love you

to the beauty I had found

 

Well it's 1,2,3,4

take the elevator at the Hotel Yorba

I'll be glad to see you later

all they got inside is vacancy

 

I've been thinking

of a little place down by the lake

they got a dirty old road leading up to the house

I wonder how long it will take

til we're alone

sitting on the front porch of that home

stomping our feet on the wooden boards

never got to worry about locking the door

 

Well it's 1,2,3,4

take the elevator at the Hotel Yorba

I'll be glad to see you later

all they got inside is vacancy

 

It might sound silly

for me to think childish thoughts like these

but I'm so tired of acting tough

and I'm gonna do what I please

let's get married

in a big cathedral by a priest

cuz if I'm the man that you love the most

you can say I do at least

 

Well it's 1,2,3,4

take the elevator at the Hotel Yorba

I'll be glad to see you later

all they got inside is vacancy

and it's 4,5,6,7

grab your umbrella

grab a hold of me cuz I'm your favorite fella

all they got inside is vacancy

Maybe if i stopped drinking and bunning so much I could wing arguments like that to some idiots I know. Anyway, some guy I know got the CD because it's all trendy now, and i didn't mind it. This coming from a guy that lives hip-hop and occasionally checks 'the others.' Yeah, it was alright, but not sickitating or anything to me.

that guy I said that bought the CD also bought the Strokes on the same day, as they were at the very front of the HMV all setup to sell right next to each other. so, is brown pants, horizontally striped collared shirts and seventies hair back in style?
