The White Stripes Walking With A Ghost by Tegan and Sara Quin

Tegan and Sara perform ‘Call It Off’

Tower Records.


June 2010.

“Maybe I would have been
Something you’d be good at
Maybe you would have been
Something I’d be good at
But now we’ll never know
I won’t be sad
But in case
I’ll go there
To make myself feel bad
There’s a chance
I’ll start to wonder
If this was the thing to do
I won’t be out long
But I still think it better if
You take your time
Coming over here
I think that’s for the best
Call, break it off
Call, break my own heart” © Tegan and Sara

For the record, ‘Walking With a Ghost‘ is an original song by Tegan and Sara.  An impressive cover, however, was released by the talents of The White Stripes a year after its release on  ‘So Jealous‘, a Tegan and Sara album released in 2004.

The White Stripes released a six track EP released in December 2005, six months after Get Behind Me Satan featuring a cover of ‘Walking With A Ghost’ as the opening single.  Note of this tribute was given graciously on the White Stripes EP, noting Sara Quin as the original song writer.

Although written mostly by Sara, the twin sisters share credit to the creation of the timeless little ditty.
