One thing's for sure - it's one of Keith's finest guitar moments.

The music and lyrics of this song are unreal. This song has always grabbed me tight. Keith's bratty riffing matches up quite nicely Mick's phrasing. Then that solo. It lifts you up, takes you to another place. Then it ends with a smack, back into Keith's bratty riffing.

Love it, love it, love it.

Jimmy Fallon skipped the Exhibition press conference the other night. His car pulled up to the pink carpet towards the end of the press conference. Jimmy's a good sport, even offering to *climb over the barricade to go across the street to pose for selfies, sign autographs.

I think Jimmy's arrival might have been a diversion so the Stones could leave little building across the street where the mini press conference was wrapping up through the back door undetected, drive around the block and enter the Exhibitionism show through Industria's back door.

All I know is it's one of the few Stones songs that gives me goosebumps EVERY time I listen to it, and that's down to the instrumentation. Great lyrics, but it's the riffs, slide work, piano and drums that grab me by the balls every time.

The First Barbarians played segments of it live in 1974, though.

Totally agree. Always wondered how they would have arranged it for the '69 tour.


Here is what dandelionpowderman was referring to, you can hear bits in the song Shirley.

I think it's comparable to Jumping Jack Flash, a surrealist fairy-tail, rather bleak (more like Christian Andersen than the Grimm brothers), basically saying "I'm a freak, I'm weird, I'm a complete mess, but I'm doing alright anyway".

That's how I see it too. Reveling, defiant, bemused--and hoping for an equal game partner--in down n dirty hedonistic decadence.

"It takes one to know one"

and quite possibly, just maybe,
the best recorded song, ever.
I've said that once before, about Tumbling Dice.
In the top 10 of all time at least, to me.
Hard to narrow down these masterpieces in rankings.

I think it was Sean Egans book, Let It Bleed, where it was mentioned that this track was recorded in Olympic's studio 2. Giving it a glossier/cleaner feel.

I forget which instructor gave this recommendation for assembling a portfolio in the graphic arts (illustration, advertising, etc.):
Put your BEST PIECE FIRST.
Put the SECOND-BEST PIECE LAST.

Good advice...

That's awesome! Never consciously thought of it that way, but instinctively it totally feels that way!

Read somewhere years ago that a monkey man is a singer-frontman for a band. Makes a lot of sense for Mick
