HATE that. No Stones at all, Where's Ronnie? Doubt that Keef's playing on it at all. One of the worst "Stones" songs ever, not sounding like Stones at all.
Boring rubbish, Jaggershit like most of him in the first half of the 80ies.

I liked it when I was a teenager....I thought David Sandborn played the sax on this?

This is my least liked song from glorious Undercover. I wouldn´t say it´s total crap... but somehow this is not the STones... It´s a solo song from Mick and should be on She´s The Boss. That´s were it belongs, imo. It has a catchy chorus but listening closely it turns out to be just a stupid song (like most songs from She´s The Boss).

I like how it's different in terms of way off the path of the usual, with a lot going on, with fantastic horns, which is nice.

Back when they were still interested in being inventive.

It's an odd track, certainly, but I've had it in my recent REWIND (Expanded Deluxe Edition) playlist and it fits fantastically.

It's certainly different - perhaps more Jaggerish than Stonesish but enjoyable to my ears nonetheless. I tend to give it a listen most often around Hallowe'en when I'm more in the mood to listen to spooky/macabre tracks of various artists!

Jeffery Dahmer didn't start killing people until 1987 so... no.

If you listen to this song, as well as UNDERCOVER itself, a majority of it, anyway, it's the last album where Mick was completely engaged in the vocals (there are some similar aspects on EMOTIONAL RESCUE with She's So Cold and maybe Send It To Me). There's a lot of layering. Even with guitars there's a lot going on. It's the proper followup to ER and, soundwise, the end of a brilliant sound arc with the Pathé Marconi (and somewhat Compass Point) recorded SOME GIRLS and EMOTIONAL RESCUE (as well as what would be 5 TATTOO YOU tracks), with ER's last sessions being in September of 1979 to U's November of 1982 starting sessions.

Love this song. One of their best from the 80s. Probably thanks to the Rewind video. This is full blown early 80s Stones.

There is a magic to this track that reveals itself when you put aside musical prejudices, expectations etc etc.

So hooky and ridiculous and dark and fun.

The you up there is evidently me, but give it a try and make it we.

Fantastic track on a fantastic album. Truly the last time the Stones were innovative.
