29 May 2013 – Tegan and Sara – Walking With A Ghost – over on Wicked Guilty Pleasures

Raise your hand if you thought this was actually originally a White Stripes song.  I admit it – I did.

And this isn’t the first time you’ve seen Tegan and Sara on this blog, either.  Back then, I compared them to Simon & Garfunkel, and I stand by that comparison.  And I also said that despite that, and despite the lyrically brilliant songwriting, they still felt like a guilty pleasure.  I stand by that statement as well.

You’re going back to look and see if I really said those things.  I did.

Now, I really do love the White Stripes version of this song.  It’s well done.  This version is far less bombastic, but brings a different ache to the song.

And yes, Scott, it’s a better version – are you happy now?!

As a bonus, here it is with three guitars.  It’s a richer sound, and yet more stripped down.
