Best Ever White Stripes Live Performances

I took it upon myself to compile my favorite White Stripes live Songs. (plus Links!)

10. "Jolene" Live from Glastonbury
While "Jolene" isn't my favorite, It is definetly a set highlight, and this is the version I refer to. If you know a better one, do tell me.

9. "Sister, Do You Know My Name?" Live at the Casbah
I really don't like most the songs from that show, cause it wasn't exactly their best, and it envolved A LOT of tuning, but this song is the one I really loved.

8. "The Denial Twist" Live From KCRW
Pretty awesome guitar version to the piano driven song.

7. "Seven Nation Army" from Under Blackpool Lights
This is actually the first live White Stripes Songs. Great.

6. "De Ballit Of De Boll Weevill" from Under Nova Scotia Lights
This is always the end of a White Stripes show, and this is the best version i've heard.

5. "Ball and Biscuit" Live on VH1.
I took an audio only version of the video, just beacuse the only video of it has the audio and the video kinda jacked up. But this is definetly the best "Ball and Biscuit" performance ever. Pretty Amazing.

4. "Mister, You're A Better Man" w/ Jeff Beck
Ok, Beck and Jack... Jack and Beck.... (Swoon)

3. "Let's Shake Hands" from Under Great White Northern Lights
While Jack's Vocals are a little Shaky, This song is a burst of energy, a force to be reckoned with.

2. "Death Letter" ?????
I think this is BY FAR the best version of the song, and it is so beatiful. Unfortunately, I don't know where it's from.

1. "Blue Orchid/Party of Special Things To Do" Live from the BBC Basement
Ok, This blew me away the first time I saw it. Jack and Meg and playing Absolutely perfectly, and Then they just melt right into "Party of Special Things To Do. I frequently consider this song a privilege to listen to.

The Different Faces of Jack White

Has Anyone Else Noticed This? Jack White's looks have changed over the years, and here is my chart of the Jack White Looks.

1. Brief Mohawk Jack

This is the only photo of this one I could find, and it's from the early white stripes/upholsters days, and jack barely had a set of hair. Weird to think, right?

2. The White Stripes/De Stijl Jack

The more widely seen version of early Jack White. This lasted about two albums, then changed a little.

3. White Blood Cells Jack

In This, Jack's hair just kinda changed. Not huge, but worth noting.

4. Elephant Signature Jack

I'm pretty sure this is the Jack that White Stripes fans love the most. The Height of his career, and Jack looked amazing. This was kinda his sgnature. And it left pretty fast.

5. Scary Get Behind Me Satan Jack

Ok, While Jack White is great and respectable in almost everything he does, this version always scares me and my friend half to death. I Mean, look at that mustache! And also, all these weird outfits started to surface. Hmmm.....

6. Icky Thump/The Raconteurs Jack

This is Jack White in just plain awesome form.

7. Scary Dead Weather/Re-Get Behind Me Satan

While Get Behind Me Satan Jack was weird, Jack was at least the same fun Jack. When performing with The Dead Weather, Jack seemed like.... He was on drugs, or something.... Its just a weird time period.

8. Third Man: Re-Icky Thump/Elephant Jack

The NOW Jack. It Has The Face of Icky Thump mixed with the Elephant Hair. Kinda weird sounding i guess....

So There..... Yep..... You all probably think im weird now.
