She's The Boss - revisited

Well, I just downloaded this for old times' sake from iTunes and - get ready to throw bricks at me - I've got to say I'm LOVING it.

Maybe I'm coming down with something ;-)

Stay safe...

Perhaps it's a result of being in self-isolation for nearly 3 weeks over here in Italy.... stir craziness beckons...

Serious cheese - It's kind of comical listening to it now but I know back when it came out I liked it LOL

Mick wanted to become a solo star in the 80s as big as Michael Jackson and Prince with that album

Beginning of the "Should've been a Stones album instead" era.

Definitely cheesy! And I'll give it a "little bit of fun".

I went through this too about a year or two ago.
Kept playing it in my car over and over.

It will last a few days, then the album will go dormant in your interest for another 10-15 years.

Enjoy it. Ride it out.

I've revisited it and it's awful just like then.

I think I posted on FB more in the last week, than in my entire stay there. And yesterday I started a long thread with people about how I been listening to a lot of back catalog music by classic bands. Been on a Pink Floyd kick.

So "Mick Jagger' solo could be one of the next endeavors.
I think Rocky Dijon had posted re. 'Primitive Cool' recently; made me re-listen some of the tracks. They are probably even worse than I remembered.
I think with Jagger solo it makes a huge difference who he surrounds himself with. His partner will color his style, and writing. Jagger is after all a chameleon. Dave Stewart is not good for him IMO. And while I think Jeff Beck is the greatest guitarist alive, I don't think he works well w/ Jagger either.
Jagger needs softer edges, he needs humor!, perspective. Also someone who isn't necessarily a fan of his.
I Jagger's favor I give him props for experimenting. Part of daring like that is to fall on your face every now and then. Because the successes are sweeter then. I still think that "Might as well get juiced' is a success.

Hard Woman is Jagger's best solo track and up there with the best songs he's ever sang.

The album has some good stuff on it. I like Party Doll, lonely at the top, Lucky in Love, and others.

I think "Party Doll" was on Primitive.

I put it in the same category as the Ringo and George Harrison records. Because I loved the Beatles and Stones so much, I tried to force myself into loving these records. Eventually I punted that idea

Put me down as a fan of the album too; whilst its not a great piece, there's a definite charm about it and some fine melodies. Secrets, Just Another Night, Hard Woman, She's the Boss - good tracks. Even Running out of Luck and Turn the Girl Loose are memorable.

I watched the movie recently and enjoyed it for what it is - campy, oddball fun. Its not supercool Jagger of the 60s or 70s, but its not quite "Let's Work" cringe either.

Yes, Hard Woman is definitely a great song. And so is Just Another Night.

No obviously that record is fantastic. Cloud 9 ok too. I honestly like the RINGO lp and Goodess in the Doorway. But the others didn't require many repeated spind

It is. But it doesn't matter, it would fit in just fine on STB because it's so bad.
