RE: New PMJ album with new Haley White Stripes
Quote:"Seven Nation Army"

I'm gonna fight 'em off
A seven nation army couldn't hold me back
They're gonna rip it off
Taking their time right behind my back
And I'm talkin' to myself at night
Because I can't forget
Back and forth through my mind
Behind a cigarette

And the message comin' from my eyes says, "Leave it alone."

Don't wanna hear about it
Every single one's got a story to tell
Everyone knows about it
From the Queen of England to the hounds of hell
And if I catch it comin' back my way
I'm gonna serve it to you
And that ain't what you want to hear
But that's what I'll do

And the feeling coming from my bones says, "Find a home."

I'm going to Wichita
Far from this opera for evermore
I'm gonna work the straw
Make the sweat drip out of every pore
And I'm bleeding, and I'm bleeding, and I'm bleeding
Right before the lord
All the words are gonna bleed from me
And I will think no more

And the stains comin' from my blood tell me, "Go back home."

Quote:The song is rare in being a very good song about that titanic cliché, the pressures of fame. Feeling frustrated with the level of scrutiny they were getting, White came up with a storyline about a guy who rides into town and finds all his friends are gossiping about him. "He feels so bad he has to leave town," he said, "but you get so lonely you come back. The song's about gossip. It's about me, Meg and the people we're dating."

The Haley PMJ version opens with Haley singing acapella to the snapping of fingers.

For some reason, one of the first things that came to mind while I listened to the White Stripes version was James Durbin singing Uprising on AI with those marching drummers. This is Durbinator territory but the song has been thoroughly given the PMJ/Haley Reinhart treatment and stands anew. I love it -- Radiohead, White Stripes, Tove Lo. The acapela beginning with finger snaps reminds me of the recent GBAIGTY cover with the No Vacancy Orchestra.

OMG, Seven Nation Army is one of my favorite songs. Period.

Can't wait for this.

Edit: In Melanie Martinez' cover, she sings the riff. I wonder if Haley will scat it. (Which would be fantastic)

BTW Welcome, Smile

Looks like the Aussies and Kiwi's will be treated to the first live performance of this song Wink
(Unless they do it informally like at Hyde Sunset, or something...which is entirely possible? When was the last time Scott's promoted a show there?)

OMG...love this song and anything with White Stripes & Jack White...can't wait to hear the remake. The clip sounds like a really orignial remake. Jack White is also a fan of jazz as well
as shown in this terrific cover he did on his last album - Im Shaken'

A little bit of coincidence? The day after I found out it would be this song was the day I went to see Morgan James. After the show, I decided to go to Blake Lewis' show up the street. He started his set with a mash up/ beat box cover of this song accompanied only by a sax....

When I recognised the song, I wondered to myself, did Blake know Haley covered this song too?

Blake tweeted this vid from that night, it starts at 10 sec.

I might eventually post this song, I'd thought it might be a fun one to post. I know what Blake does here is not everybody's cup of tea, I've liked many genre's of music, so I'm open to alot. Blake's show was high energy, musically 'dirty' and very entertaining Smile

Interesting that Kimberly also performed this on the voice. Setting aside the drama, Kimberly is really talented.

I think her losing that twitter battle contributed to some of the..bitterness (for lack of better word) we've seen from her. She shouldn't have lost it.

But when it comes to covers of that song, Melanie's is still my favorite. Tongue (For about another hour. Then I have a gut feeling that Haley's will take her place..)

Tusk, I think one of the greatest things about music is the way it fosters creativity in people. There are traditional/classical forms of music, that are technically brilliant and beautiful.

Blake is undeniably talented and something different. He's not as talented as some others in the traditional sense, but he is talented. And even as someone who doesn't love beatboxing, I always end up enjoying his performances. A unique performer is going to be polarizing, but for me..he's always enjoyable. (And his "Radioactive" is one of my all time favorite PMJ covers)
