Jack White:

    "'Sittin' On Top Of The World' was the first blues song I learned how to play--from Howlin' Wolf's version, when I was a teenager, actually--so I had known that. And I knew 'Wayfaring Stranger' from a band I was in called Two-Star Tabernacle--we had played that song. So when I went to audition for the director, I, I already knew how to play that song."
