Song Of The Week #27

Having just read The Great Gatsby, I am naturally very interested in the film, which should be coming out some time next year. The trailer seems decent enough, and  it certainly doesn’t hurt that some pretty neat tunes are featured.

Jack White – Love Is Blindness

Jack White, better known for his role in rock duo The White Stripes, is an American musician and (according to my dear ol’ friend Wikipedia) number 70 on the Rolling Stone’s list of greatest guitarists of all time. Not that I actually care what the Rolling Stone has to say.. I always find their reviews to be much too harsh, and in many cases severely biased.

Early in his career, Jack formed, together with is then-wife Meg White, The White Stripes and with their single Seven Nation Army achieved world recognition. After many a happy year though, the duo split apart due to ‘a myriad of reasons …but mostly to preserve what is beautiful and special about the band’.

Love Is Blindness, originally appearing on U2’s 1992 Achtung Baby, was covered by Jack White on the 2011 tribute album AHK-tong BAY-bi Covered. The album celebrated Achtung Baby’s 20th anniversary by gathering a well-known host of artists (The Fray, Snow Patrol and Depeche Mode, to name a few) to cover each track.

The song is featured in the trailer of The Great Gatsby, and can be listened to here.

Enjoy!

Pick-me-up Song #1

“Always laugh when you can. It’s cheap medicine.”

– Lord Byron

Oh, how so very true. It may be hard sometimes to remember the good when one is drowning in that (all-to-familliar) sea named Sorrow, but in order to move on it is vitally important that we do not let these small ‘slips’ bring us down. Everyone can use a little pick-me-up every now and then, and it is for exactly that purpose I set up these posts.

There’s nothing like a good, cheerful  song to get you up ‘n’ running again.
