This particular performance in Spielberg was astounding.
I watched it unfold into one of the most powerful and poignant renditions of any song that I've ever witnessed live. It seems etched in my heart and my head and my dreams.
Keith was in a zone and it was truly memorizing to watch. He poured his heart and soul into this song that night and the results were simultaneously gorgeous and gut-wrenching.
The vocal delivery seemed to come from deep inside...
"I'm getting OFF on M I S E R Y..." with both clenched fist and jaw.
And then this verse:
"First the sun and then the moon...
One of them I'LL be round soon. Awww yeah...I'M slipping away...oh yeah."
I'm not sure I've ever heard him sing those lines in the first person.
I know I've never heard him sing them THAT way before.
This is a good video of it from youtube:video: [youtu.be]
I'm still in awe.
6 and a half minutes of rock n' roll sincerity.
Long Live The Rolling Stones.
