This polyrhythmic rocker mixes a galloping electro beat, irregular sound effects and trademark Jack White killer riffs. In the past one of Jack White's biggest concerns was being able to reproduce the sound live but this didn't worry him when writing for Boarding House Reach. He told Mojo:
"On Respect Commander, where we sped up the drumbeat so fast it's an almost impossible speed for a drummer to play. The engineer said, 'well, this is unplayable now.' But I said, 'No, we're just on the edge of it being unplayable.. That sounds like a good, uncomfortable place to be.'"
Michael Jackson's "Liberian Girl" opens with the South African female singer Letta Mbulu saying the Swahili phrase "Naku penda piya-naku taka piya-mpenziwe." There was some geographic liberty here, as Swahili is not spoken in the West African nation of Liberia.
"Handle With Care" started as a George Harrison song with guest appearances by Roy Orbison, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne, but it went so well the five of them decided to form a group - The Traveling Wilburys - and record an entire album.
