"Fell in Love with a Girl" is the second single released from The White Stripes' third album White Blood Cells. Released in 2002, it reached number one hundred and twenty-one in the U.S. and number twenty-one in the UK. The song was re-recorded in 2003 as "Fell in Love with a Boy" by Joss Stone and was also covered as a lounge song by Richard Cheese and Lounge Against the Machine for their second album Tuxicity.

In the April edition of Rolling Stone magazine, the song was listed as one of the forty songs that changed rock history.

It was also included in a polka medley by "Weird Al" Yankovic, "Angry White Boy Polka", from his album Poodle Hat.

Music videoEdit

The music video is a LEGO-style animation, directed by Michel Gondry. It has won several MTV Video Music Awards. The video is shot frame by frame with each frame having the Lego bricks rebuilt, sometimes in a complex manner to seem as if it were an actual shot, and then formed together to give the illusion of motion. The video is considered to be one of the most complex videos using Lego bricks ever made, and as in tune with the White Stripes image, the video mostly consists of red, white, and black color.

In an interview for the The Work of Director Michel Gondry DVD, Jack stated that the White Stripes' long-time collaboration with Michel Gondry started by accident; for "Fell In Love with a Girl", Jack stated that he wanted to work with the director who did Beck's video for "Devils Haircut", referring, of course, to Mark Romanek. Their record company called Michel, and got him to direct the video, thinking he directed "Devils Haircut", but Jack didn't mind, as he also did the video for "Deadweight", which Jack also liked.
