Click to listen to Jack White's 'You Know That I Know'

The Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams is a new collection of previously unheard songs performed by the country great recorded by artists including Bob Dylan, Jack White, Norah Jones and Levon Helm. The songs in the set were rescued from notebooks left behind by Williams after he died in 1953 at the age of 29, but were completed by the artists, who each put their own distinct spin on the raw material. Jack White's "You Know That I Know" is a highlight of the set that finds the White Stripes frontman tapping into the country folk magic of Williams' body of work while staying true to his own voice. The album will hit stores tomorrow, but you can preview the song today.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
