Raise your hand if you thought this was actually originally a White Stripes song. I admit it - I did.
And this isn't the first time you've seen Tegan and Sara on this blog, either. Back then, I compared them to Simon & Garfunkel, and I stand by that comparison. And I also said that despite that, and despite the lyrically brilliant songwriting, they still felt like a guilty pleasure. I stand by that statement as well.
You're going back to look and see if I really said those things. I did.
Now, I really do love the White Stripes version of this song. It's well done. This version is far less bombastic, but brings a different ache to the song.
And yes, Scott, it's a better version - are you happy now?!
As a bonus, here it is with three guitars. It's a richer sound, and yet more stripped down.
