Video: “Jolene”, The White Stripes


I couldn’t let my co-blogger’s post about the Sisters of Mercy’s cover of “Jolene” pass without throwing in another great cover of Dolly Parton’s tortured plea. The White Stripes released their version as a B-side in 2000, and Jack White’s strained vocals and angular guitar work add a note of desperation not found in the original.

This video comes from the White Stripes Under Blackpool Lights DVD.
