34: The White Stripes - Fell In Love With A Girl

"I've said it once before, but it bears repeating"

The second ever charting UK single from Jack and Meg, which almost scraped into the Top 20 in the spring of 2002. Clocking in at just 1m 50secs, it's probably the shortest song in my countdown - a rapid-fire burst of hyperactive guitar. Whatever that emotion is in Jack's voice, it certainly doesn't seem like "love", but that's just one of the many quirky contradictions inherent in the White Stripes' music.

Of course, this song is most famous for its fabulous, multi-award-winning video.
