The True Power of Rock and Roll - October 2008   Download List as ZIP File

I bought a DVD of The White Stripes playing live in England. The disk is called Under Blackpool Lights. During the concert they cover a Son House tune called Death Letter.

When I saw the shot of the audience pulsing up and down in unison I realized that was the true power of rock and roll. Following is a clip I ripped from the DVD (check out the pulse of the crowd in the shot from behind Jack):

Death Letter - High (68 MB)
Death Letter - Low (25 MB)

The cover for this playlist is taken from the DVD artwork. It's a picture of Meg White as the character Jolene from the Dolly Parton tune.

The true power of rock and roll can make you heave and sway with friends and strangers. The true power of rock and roll doesn't come from wires and amplifiers, although they help propel it at high velocity. The true power of rock and roll comes from genitalia and the primitive brain. The true power of rock and roll is transmitted throughout the universe on radio waves as ancient as the big bang singularity. The true power of rock and roll cannot be harnessed only experienced.
