The White Stripes – Seven Nation Army (album: Elephant 2003)

This song is by The White Stripes. Discovered by my hubby. We spent a lot of time reading Jack White’s thoughts on his website. He is F... amazing!!! He is so talented. He came out with a special riff for his guitar that allows them to play songs without a Bass guitar. I didn’t even noticed that the Bass Guitar is missing, how brilliant is that?!? If you want to get to know him a little bit more then you should watch “It might get loud”, brilliant movie with 3 of the best guitar players ever: Jimmy Page, The Edge and Jack White oh well not the best but pretty close!

I read in sonfacts that this song is a story about a guy coming back to his own hometown after he got really famous. Facing people that gossiping and whispering behind his back all over town and all he wants is to get away from them. I think this story is a metaphor for the gossiping that he and Mag experienced after they got famous. When asked about the relationship between them they always stated that they are siblings but there were constantly rumours about them being married to each other. I say – Who cares, it’s all about the music and nothing else! Check out this magical song...
