I was screwing around on Facebook the other evening, and saw a post from a friend of mine. She’s been watching this show called Peaky Blinders, which apparently features a *lot* of music by the White Stripes. She was surprised to find out how blues-influenced they were— she thought they were way more punk rock. And if all you’d ever heard was Hello Operator I can see why.
It was Jack White’s dirty, dirty blues guitar that what got me into the White Stripes in the first place. I’d listened to Hello, Operator and Fell in Love with a Girl, but it wasn’t until I heard Ball and a Biscuit for the first time that I thought “Hey. This is pretty awesome.” I’ve been a huge fan ever since.
One thing I’ve discovered during the hundreds of hours of work that have been cranked out thanks to a White Stripes soundtrack is that there are actually a lot of really good design and branding lyrics in their songs. Seriously! To prove it, I’ve put together a list of three songs that have reinforced lessons I’ve learned about branding, courtesy of Jack and Meg.
