I love this thread! It already holds a great collection of opinions/experiences on My Obsession. I was wondering where mine would fit in best, but came to the conclusion (-ion) that the song (and in fact the whole "Buttons" album) is just another example of how the music of the Rolling Stones craved itself deeply into my bones. After Aftermath (played purple and grey on my record player) the anxiety grew day by day ... What's coming next? And here it was ... BTB! A new "world" opened for my ears. Another (great) album destined to be craved into my bones again. When I put it on loud in my car, every note immediately pleases my ears again. And yes, My Obession was one of those lovely surprises that continue to today to be very Rolling Stones. I only need to shut out the world (actually dangerous to drive the car ...) and all excitement fills my body and mind again. What the Stones are today is how they made themselves then: a unique bunch of musicians!

For some unknown reason Brian Wilson loved this song, according to his first aUto-biography.

From Rolling Stones magazine:

“Satisfaction” is my second-favorite song by the Stones. This one (My Obsession) is my favorite.
They invited me down to their studio in Hollywood when they were mixing it. I remember sitting there and feeling that energy and that excitement".
- Brian Wilson

Yeah, I fully understand his emotions. It's an amazing "rolling power" that is released in the song. When you think you totally get lost in it, it suddenly stops and wakes you up, and then again you're dragged into it again, and so on.
But better than "Satisfaction"? No, that song comes from another planet ...

I love this song. It's got an unusual feel to me, sort of like it jump starts itself all the way thru the song, which I actually like,

I do think it's more ROCK than POP though, despite other posters saying otherwise. It's got a tough little groove

****** Rod - love the missus, the Stones, Springsteen, Travel, NYC, Cars and Apple.
