Hotel Yorba (2:09)

Cover of White Blood Cells

From White Blood Cells and 44 other releases

“Hotel Yorba” is the lead single from White Blood Cells, by The White Stripes, and their first single to be released commercially. It was released in November 2001. It has a country feel and an upbeat vibe. The Hotel Yorba is a former hotel in southwest Detroit that is now used as government subsidized housing, and the single version was recorded in a room there. The White Stripes shot much of the song’s music video outside the hotel, but were denied permission to film inside; according to Jack White, the duo is “sort of banned for life” from the hotel.

The song is primarily built around three chords G, C and D, but a fourth, F, is also heard.

    After having just heard a part of a lifehouse song, I value this band, and this track all the more.
