New Music Monday: Jack White
I first heard this song in the “Great Gatsby” trailer that I posted a few weeks back. Jack White’s cover on the classic U2 song, “Love is Blindness” totally rocks it, and, in my opinion, is better than the original version.
Jack White’s cover was on the album of U2 covers that was created in celebration of the band’s 20th anniversary of their classic album, “Achtung Baby.” Personally, I like Jack White’s version better than the original U2 version.
I love the emotion and pure rawness in Jack White’s voice. The revved up drum and over exaggerated guitar in this version give the song a more of a raw rock feel as well. Jack White’s touch is so rock ‘n’ roll and so special, everything he does is gold.
He is an amazing musician and while was most well known for the White Stripes, has done some amazing solo work and group work since. For example, if you have never heard of the Dead Weather, I suggest you check out THIS heavy rock song and download the rest of the album immediately.
