Hotel Yorba by The White Stripes (Download Here) (Buy From Amazon)
An oldie (2001) but still an awesome song. THis is actually the first single ever released by The White Stripes. Built in 1926, the Hotel Yorba is a former hotel in southwest Detroit. The song was recorded in room 206 of the hote which is now used as government subsidized housing. Most of the music video was shot outside the hotel, but they were denied permission to film inside; according to Jack White, the duo is “sort of banned for life” from the hotel.
