The beginning of it all (for me at least). Of course, I'm talking about my unabiding love for the sounds and tunes of Jack and Meg White.
I still remember scrounging online for an illegal download of "Fell In Love With A Girl" and loading it onto my MP3 player. With it blasting in my ears, Chaunce and I took off to the ball diamond for a romp. As it played it over and over and I danced in the outfield to the amusement for all the passing cars while the red dog was happily perplexed about what had gotten into me, I flashed back to high school and listening to The Cure, Depeche Mode and (most importantly) The Violent Femmes with my sister. How I wish she was with me that afternoon as I jumped and twirled with my favorite dog and I was reminded over and over and over how deliriously happy a single song can make me.
I even forgave Jack for not playing it when I saw him and Meg in Chicago a while later for one of the most frenetic and inspired live shows ever.
