This awesome song begins with a steady pulsating beat which is soon joined by the rich sound of the electric guitar. The lyrics are loud and boisterous to the ear but when you listen to them carefully they carry a deep-seated meaning. It's easy to understand and clear to listen to. Jack White's anger is sometimes shown by shouted words, however some phrases like "the hardest button to button" can be repeated slightly too much! The texture of the song is thick with many different layers of sound. The fab base guitar notes hold the song together excellently and with the drum beat they give the song another dimension. The overall theme of the song is a man (Jack White) who has experienced many things but has finally given up trying to change things and just accepts everything the way that it is. He comes across as angry but resigned to fate and whatever else his life will throw at him.
This song is amazing, fantastic, incredible, awesome, brilliant and really makes you think!
If you haven't heard White Stripes before prepare yourself for a great shock and you will definitely love them as much as I do!
