[midlife 150] #148: the white stripes “seven nation army”

February 1, 2010

#148 Seven Nation Army by The White Stripes (taken from Elephant, 2003)

The first of many songs in this list that really need no introduction. Seven Nation Army exemplifies the Stripes’ uncanny ability to craft radio-friendly blues/rock poetry that sounds both erudite and raw.

Effortlessly awesome.

This review is part of close to 94 ‘s [midlife 150] series, which counts down favourite music 1970-2009.
