"I'm thinkin' about my doorbell. When ya gonna ring it, when ya gonna ring it."
I've been hearing this White Stripes song a lot lately. It's probably no coincidence since Jack White's latest incarnation, The Dead Weather, has an album release this week. When I hear "My Doorbell" I wonder if Jack White has a nice Arts & Crafts copper doorbell button. I wonder how the song might change if Jack White had a Victorian mechanical doorbell or if the song would have even been written if Jack White had a door knocker. But mostly I think that if Jack White had a complementary mailbox and house numbers, his doorbell might be more inviting and he might not have to ask "when ya gonna ring it". Yeah, I've been thinkin' about Jack White's doorbell. Oh well.
