Editor’s note: This list was originally published in 2013, but with the release of the new Dead Weather record, we thought we would revisit one of our favorite lists and modern artists.

When Jack White releases something new, we are sure to break out all the bells and whistles to announce its arrival. Today, we update our best Jack White songs list with the new album and White’s last album in mind. While we certainly love a handful of songs on the new album (“High Ball Stepper”, “Temporary Ground”, “Entitlement”), the fact that we are still relatively new to these songs held them from back from making a stacked list.

So without further ado, the best of Jack White:

LxListening: I Got the Blues … the Bad Bears Blues

jay cutler, sad, bad, frown

Being the Chicago Bears die-hard I am, I find myself in a bit of a slump this evening. Last week the Bears (after the first few possessions) came out of the gate fists-a-swingin’, leading me to believe that we would have a very promising season. After last’s nights debacle with the Packers, I am still hopeful, but not quite as confident as I was yesterday. In any case, it suits me quite well given my music preference in this past week, to have a case of “the blues” about it. It’s almost as if my subconscious knew exactly what to prepare me for. In the midst of all the new glitz and glamor with recent albums that have dropped (or leaked), I still have had a hard time pulling away from my “blues” catalogue. Normally about 4-5 times a year I’ll slip heavy into a “blues” funk, and no matter what else is going on, I can’t seem to want to listen to anything else. All other times of the year it’s prevalent, but not as prominent. Because of all the new material at my fingertips lately, this week hasn’t been as par with the rest of those heavy weeks. However, I assure you it will come on full-bore tomorrow, after the suffering of what was last night’s game which included or notorious hero Jay Cutler being sacked seven times and throwing four interceptions. Here are some of my most coveted blues classics as of old.

Top Ten Thursday: Jack White Out

Top Ten Thursday: Jack White Out

 Many Jack White Bands, Faces of Jack White, best Jack White Songs,

Continuing our week of unabashed love and adoration for Jack White, we thought what better than to bring an all-Jack list to the masses (or…our friends’ basements), and a day early at that. Our discussions were actually much longer and vicious than our usual list quarrels, really feeling the weight of making such a jam-packed list as this. We discussed a few songs off of Blunderbussmaking the list (primarily “Love Interruption”, “Hip (Eponymous) Poor Boy” and “Trash Tongue Talker”) before finally settling on leaving them off, since they have only had a week to sink in, unlike these other songs, which we have loved and rocked out to for years. So without further ado, the best of Jack White:
