366TAS: 1:50 – The White Stripes – You’re Pretty Good Looking (For A Girl)

When I first mentioned this project to my buddy Josh, he said his best 1:$0 track was… well, this White Stripes tune. But did he want to make that pick so early? Did he really want to go the rest of the year without being able to pick a White Stripes track? That’s what makes putting this all together so tricky and so fun: some of the hard choices you have to make. As it is, I’m not as big a White Stripes fan as Josh is (I think few are), so it’s the right pick for me, even if it means passing over Nina Gordon’s excellent cover of “Straight Outta Compton.”

    Good project. Looking at my own iTunes collection, I think Queen’s “Misfire” edges the Dirty Faces’ “Rocky Bleier” as my favorite 1:50 song.
