Lou Reed "Turn To Me" from New Sensations. Musically a total tribute to "Honky Tonk Women". Bruce Springsteen did some versions of "Darlington County" in 1999 that morphed into "Honky Tonk Women" not that the original bears that much resemblance to it.

More of a rip of "Soul Survivor". Later followed by "Rock and A Hard Place".

A number of Keith's solo things - "It Means A Lot", "Whip It Up", "Running Too Deep", "Will But You Won't".

I suppose McCartney's "Let Me Roll It" would count, but it's more in the vein of solo Lennon - "Cold Turkey", etc.

"No Anchovies, Please"

Half of it is Soul Survivor (chorus), the other half is HTW (verses).

Great song, by the way.

If my memory serves me well, it was apparently the other way round. Rumour at the time was that during work on what was therefore later to be called "Country Honk", the famous guitar sound of "Honky Tonk Women" came up. If correct, the preplanned A-side of the following single "You Can't Always Get What You Want" (the short version) was relegated to B-side, and one special new A-side took its place.

Please correct me if I am wrong, I might easily be, or give more spesific details than I am capable of, I have never systematically read up on hardcore facts about the band, and I don't have the musician's grip of their music.

ahhhh you're probably right!

Country Honk was the original way Mick and I wrote Honky Tonk Women and sang it. That was the song as far as we were concerned. Then we said, Ah, that's great, it should be a single. So we cut it with the band and made it sort of funky, drums, organized it for the band. But we were still interested in doing it the way that we originally thought of it - a sort of Hank Williams, Jimmie Rodgers, early pre-Nashville sound. I always loved Merle Haggard.
- Keith Richards, 1982

That's what I thought as well, I thought maybe Munichhilton was joking around or something, but maybe Country Honk came second. I'd just always heard that they started with Country Honk, then Taylor came along and the electric version came about.

I suspect it was Ry Cooder who 'came along'...........

Another song related to HTW - Chris Rea's Stainsby Girls, which includes the first few bars of HTW.
