Old Habits Die Hard

Anyone like this Mick tune from the Alfie movie? Its defintiely standard solo Mick but I think one of his better ones.

Giving Mick his first and only Golden Globe award, if memory serves.

BTW, an aside. I believe 'Habbits' should only have one "B". It sort of looks like "Rabbits".

Which reminds me, when it first came out I actually heard it on the radio, afterwards the DJ came on and mocked Mick's lazy slurs on the song, and sang it back in "Elmer Fudd-style"...ie that Wasically Wabbit.

It was funny - though mean - and cannot hear the song now without thinking about that.

For that matter, had it been written and recorded a decade or so earlier it would have worked amazingly on BooBoo Lounge.

Funny, I never knew there was a duet with Crow until now. I defintiely prefer the one with just Mick

Love that song and actually there are a few other really great tunes from that " Alfie" soundtrack ( produced by Dave Stewart). Check out " Darkness of Your Love", & " Standing in the Rain".. I also prefer the version that Mick sings without Sheryl Crow, although her version is not bad at all.

It's good. It's great. It's Mick at his best. Way better than Stealing My Heart and whatever the other one on FORTY LICKS is.

Since the op didn't provide a video for the song for some reason...

Yep, good one, too bad he didn't save it for ABB, or maybe Keith had vetoed it earlier ? The Sheryl Crow version is great, should have been a "single", although I'm not sure it ever surfaced in CD quality ?

EDIT - I see it's on Spotify as an Alfie soundtrack bonus so I suppose the answer is it was, not only a "radio edit".
