Their most outrageous lyric?
Posted by: WorriedAboutYou ()
Date: February 5, 2010 21:02

"I'll be in my basement room/with a needle and a spoon" always raises an eyebrow. Great line.

Any other Stones lyrics that you'd consider as still being a bit edgy or controversial?

"Black girls just wanna get @#$%& all night."

"Your tricks with fruit, is kinda cute. I bet you keep your pussy clean"

"I can see that your 15 years old. I don't want your ID"

"We're dropping heroin with the president"



These are just a few off the top of my head.

Re: Too Much Blood

From [timeisonourside.com]

"I had made out a very honest burden of mind before everyone had arrived one night. It was just Charlie and Bill. And one of our roadies called Jim Barber, he was playing guitar on it too. And I just started playing this riff I had, with this middle part, I didn't have any words to it and then I just suddenly started RAPPING out these words which are the ones you hear. And (laughs) - well there was this scandalous, murderous story in France - it was a TRUE story - about this Japanese guy who murdered this girl and it sort of captured the imagination of the French public, and the Japanese. The Russians wanted to make a MOVIE out of it. So that was the first bit and then I started becoming more light-hearted about it, movies and all. But it's very, it's very... it came out as a sort of anti-gratuitous cinema of violence. And it's a kind of anti-violent thing. But it's also a good dance track." - Mick Jagger, 1984
---------------------------

I always found his delivery on this song quite amusing, especially this line:

"By chance, a taxi driver noticed him burying the bones"

I would argue that "Midnight Rambler" hardly condones the actions of a rapist and murderer just because it is written from his perspective. I believe the opposite was Jagger's intent in writing the song. People tend to react as if a writer tackling a sensitive topic like rape and murder from first-person perspective is tantamount to the writer cheering the offender on.

Likewise, I view "Too Much Blood" as Jagger's commentary on the emergence of True Crime as Entertainment and the contemporaneous popularity of slasher films (formerly relegated to exploitation drive-in fare with limited audience exposure) as symptomatic of and contributing factors to the consequent desensitization of society rather than Jagger making light of a tragedy.

Looking at it from the perspective you used above, do you also think that Jagger intended "Dangerous Beauty" to be read as pro-abuse of prisoners of war or that "Flip the Switch" sympathizes with a madman on death row? Does "GunFace" really promote murder as an acceptable outlet for anger? A writer getting inside such a character does not mean they sympathize with them. It is an effective means of making the horror of the topic real.

I don't mean to come down on you for your opinions, behroez but I think political correctness and any form of censorship is a subject that bears closer examination. You were offended and while I understand your viewpoint, I also think you were missing Jagger's point in the first place. Ultimately, I think he is more on your side than you suspect, but chooses to highlight sensitive topics rather than bury them.

Re Too Much Blood...to me, he was expressing exasperation with all the people who kept asking him if he was surrounded by homicidal maniacs at his Texas ranch such as those depicted in the film 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre'.

'Oh no, don't cut off me arm!'

But would you still be amused if it was your daughter?

I probably wouldn't be amused in that instance, but I don't see his lyric as "joking" about someone elses misery or the situation. I don't see this as exploitation or him trying to make money off of it either. It's easily one of his most memorable and brilliant lyrics. It's uncomfortable, thought-provoking and yes, humorous.

Yes you are all right. It is actually one of my all time favorite Stones songs. It is just that i watched the video of the song last night and at that particulair part in the song this thought arose of how the father of that girl would feel watching that video, and unfortunatly sometimes a thought trickers a whole flow of memories which sometimes gets the best of me, like the poet (Omar Khayyam) says;

"The moving finger writes, and having writ,
Moves on; nor all your piety nor wit
Shall lure it back to cancel half a line
Nor all your tears wash out a word of it"

I sometimes can't help myself getting in such inner processes, but i can help not bothering other people with it. So my apologies if i had upset any one with this outburst of "trying to get away from it" (because that's what it is).

Anyway Keith looks really nasty on that video, don't you think so, he could have been a good 'bad guy' actor

The whole of New Faces. I was truly shocked that Jagger should reveal his softer side and that his heart was "breaking in two". Kinda touching that the old roue was finally mellowing.

She said, "My breasts, they will always be open
Baby, you can rest your weary head right on me
And there will always be a space in my parking lot
When you need a little coke and sympathy"

You can cream all over, you can cum all over me, oh!
Get it on rider, get it on rider, get it on rider
You can cum all over me
