Wow this is truly a zombie thread, 3 years dead and now it's alive again.

The first posts are almost 9 years old. Rene's Track Talks will never die!

Simply wonderful. One of these "Stones leaving their trodden paths"-tracks...

It is! Such a great song, the music has such a great groove & vibe, but I mostly love Mick's singing on this one!

Could have been a average b-side. Sub-standard experimental tune. There are much better songs which didn’t make the album (Fast Talking, Criss Cross Mind).

I agree. I would have rather had Criss Cross Mind or they could have finished Waiting On A Friend or Tops.

"Sometimes I'm dancing on air and I get scared, I get scared." always thought that was an interesting lyric. Particularly for that time. Wonder if it was Mick"s or Keith's.

While this song fails to mystify me, I give it the occasional listen for nostalgia’s sake. The only slight problem I have with ‘Can You Hear The Music’ (the same one I have with Angie, Winter and Till the Next Goodbye) is the pansy voice.

Great song, great album.
If you listen to this tune very carefully on vinyl with really good headphones, you can hear the crackling of a giant spliff burning.



Or maybe that's just the scratches on my vinyl copy. winking smiley

I don’t necessarily disagree with that – and, hey, who am I to tell Mick Jagger how to sing? - but I have a feeling if he sang those ballads the way he sang ‘Wild Horses’ and ‘I Got The Blues’ (i.e. less affected/no make-up), they’d be more highly regarded. As it is, those songs (with the obvious exception of Angie) remain fairly obscure...and more than a few people loathe Angie.

thumbs up

Mick has a range that goes from waaaaay over there... to waaaaaaay over there, while always sounding like Mick, but not sounding the same.

Criss Cross Mind should've been on TATTOO YOU.

Pansy voice? On Can You Hear The Music? Sounds like he's drinking out of a bottle and singing.

Pansy voice.

It's really one of their funkiest studio productions. A lot of interesting things going on in this tune.

Chris Kimsey says he made a list of approximately 25 songs to consider for Tattoo You after going through the vaults. I am sure they could have picked another from the list. I imagine some of them appeared on the bonus disc of the Some Girls Deluxe Edition.

I wonder if anyone know which songs were on Kimsey's list.

I think they should have used it on It's Only Rock 'N'Roll if not Goats Head Soup. I like it better than Luxury and If You Really Want To Be My Friend. Short And Curlies was used on It's Only Rock 'N' Roll and it was started at the Goats Head Soup sessions.

CYHTM may not be fully written out or mixed perfectly ... but even with that in mind, I LOVE THIS SONG VERY MUCH! In fact, it is one of the rarer tunes that the Stones have recorded and it belongs to my 30 or 40 favourite tracks of this band.
