Ben L'Oncle Soul

Ben L’oncle Soul‘s version of “Seven Nation Army” is almost as good as the original by The White Stripes.  However, his mo-town funk version of the rock song places it in a completely new genre that makes the two almost incomparable.

I first heard this song in a restaurant in Monaco and immediately became obsessed with the building trumpets, hopping piano licks, and soulful vocals.  I immediately went to the nearest record store and bought 3 copies: one for myself and one for each of my siblings.

Ben L’oncle Soul, meaning “uncle of soul,” combined two of my favorite things in the creation of this remix: the feel-good groove of mo-town and the unforgettable lyrics (and bass line) of The White Stripes classic.

If you don’t know the original version, you’ve been living under a rock.  As much as I love Ben L’oncle Soul’s version of the song, nothing will ever replace the original – but this version might make you dance a bit more.
