i must be fine because my heart’s still beating

white_stripes_shout.jpgThe White Stripes consider the different roles of the cortical hemispheres in processing and understanding emotion in the lyrics of their song Fell in Love With a Girl. As far as I know, this is the first discussion of asymmetry in cortical processing in punk music. Rock on.

“can’t keep away from the girl
these two sides of my brain
need to have a meeting

can’t think of anything to do yeah
my left brain knows that all love is fleeting”
