Gutterball: "Over 40"

Great song!





She said she never liked to spend a lot of time alone
She said she'd hung out with all of the Rolling Stones
Satisfaction was her middle name
She lived on candy bars, caviar and champagne

Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover
by Sophie B. Hawkins


[at 2:04 in the video above]

Damn I wish I was your lover

If I was your girl believe me
I'd turn on the Rolling Stones
We could groove along and feel much better

What Songs mentions the Stones, the individual guys, quote their song titles or lyrics? Here are a couple of my favourites:

Arctic Monkeys - I Want It All (from the sublime album AM)

And then suddenly it hit me it's a year ago
Since I drank miniature whiskey and we shared your coke
Ain't it just like you to kiss me and then hit the road
Leave me listening to The Stones
2000 Light Years From Home

What more can you add?

and another...

Cameo - She´s Strange (awesome 80s funk jam)

She's the kind of person everybody knows
She reeks distinction from head to toe
She's my twilight zone, my Al Capone
She's my rolling stones and my Ava Perone

Moves Like Jagger! (kidding)

The Arctic Monkeys reference made me chuckle the first time I heard it...

I think my favourite reference to them is the one in American Pie, but in terms of newer stuff

Metric, "Gimme Sympathy"

I can feel it in my bones
Gimme sympathy
After all of this is gone
Who'd you rather be?
The Beatles or the Rolling Stones?
Oh, seriously
You're gonna make mistakes, you're young
Come on, baby, play me something
Like, "Here Comes the Sun"

Straight to my main inspirer, says 'Urgent from the USA'

Contains a message from millions, says 'Keith don't go'

Too wasted to write my own...."

I believe the 'Rolling Stones" are mentioned in brief in the following:

Mott the Hoople - 'All the young dudes'

ELO - 'Illusions in G-major'

Sophie B. Hawkins has a song, too (can't remember the song title, though).

Also, Ke$ha's big hit 'Tic - Tock' mentions 'mick jagger.'

John Mellencamp You've Got To Stand For Something

"I've seen the Rolling Stones
Forgot about Johnny Rotten
Saw the Who back in '69
Saw Bobby Seal
Talkin' to the Panthers
Sayin' just what he had on his mind
I saw Marlon Brando
On a motorcycle
He was actin' out rebellion
I saw Rocky Stallone
In an X-rated movie
Called the Italian Stallion
I've seen lots of things
But I have not seen a lot of other things..."

The Hold Steady's 'Ask her for Adderall'
If she asks just tell her that
we opened for the Stones
They're her favourite band
Except for the Ramones

(I think they did support the stones on a BB or LIcks show?)

Class tune

Tom Waits - Satisfied

I said I will have satisfaction
I will be satisfied
Before I’m gone
Before I’m gone
I will have satisfaction
I will be satisfied
I will have satisfaction
I will be satisfied

Now Mr. Jagger and Mr. Richards
I will scratch where I’ve been itching
Now Mr. Jagger and Mr. Richards
I will scratch where I’ve been itching

Before I’m gone

I've seen the Rolling Stones, forgot about Jonny Rotten, saw the Who back in '69 - "You gotta stand for something" Mellencamp

The following lyrics are pathetic but here you go anyway...

Skyhooks - "You just like me cos I'm good in bed"

You imagine yourself as Mick Jagger's girlfriend
He wouldn't even spit in your eye
I bet you he don't get raped every weekend

Several Animals songs mention the Stones: Club A Go Go, Story of Bo Diddley, the intro to Almost Grown on an early live album where Eric says he's going to take his helmet off and shake his head like a Rolling Stones. Monterey mentions Prince Jones.
Couple Dylan tunes are supposedly about Brian: LARS and Ballad of a Thin Man mentions Mr. Jones.

Chris Rea - Stainsby Girl


Some girls used to kiss and run
And never knew what they had done
Some girls always wasted time
They keep you hanging on the line
Some loved horses and always stayed at home
But a Stainsby girl loved the Rolling Stones

Now some had games that you had to play
Making rules along the way
Strange attractions newly found
Pride and passion kicked around
Some girls stole your heart
Like most girls do
But a Stainsby girl, she could break it in two.

And I fell in love, I fell in love, I fell in love, yeah!
I fell in love with a Stainsby girl.

John Prine - Jesus, The Missing Years

He should get extra credit for mentioning the Stones and the Beatles:

At least not back then, anyhow
Jesus was a good guy, he didn't need this shit
So he took a pill with a bag of peanuts and
A Coca-Cola and he swallowed it

He discovered the Beatles, he recorded with the Stones
Once he even opened up a three-way package
In Southern California for old George Jones

Ah I just remembered a Robyn Hitchcock song from the 80's, "Trash"

And you wish you could be Brian Jones
Now he's just a heap of bones
Still he's better than you
You're a loser

And another song by him called Only The Stones Remain.
