Part 3 Exile - Torn And Frayed versus Shine A Light
Posted by: NICOS ()
Date: June 2, 2006 00:13

A few weeks ago I started a Exile On main Street versus - versus.

I will try to place (every) week a versus-versus form Exile on this board (just for fun and to know what you think about the songs)


Part 1

Ventilator blues Versus Soul survivor


Part 2

Rip This Joint versus Turd On The Run


Part 3

Torn And Frayed versus Shine A Light

Both are harmonical songs, I love Torn And Frayed those loose guitars and pedal and the backing vocals by Keith and Shine A Light nothing wrong either with this song so I can not really make up my mind.

The only different that I can find is that I can turn "Torn And Frayed" on and on, so I say 10 against 9.99



What's you opinion ?

That's a hard one, I would give T&F a slight edge on that one, for no particular reason.

SAL - the ultimate forgotten gem,
one of the strongest tunes they ever did... Easy.

i'll take Torn & Frayed for two particular reasons,
one of which is that Shine a Light didn't really come into full bloom until the VL tour -
but yeah, 10 to 9.999 sounds about right to me too.
and if the concert version of Shine a Light counts, then it's 10 & 10 - no contest. :E

Keith, be well - all the way, baby, all the way

Torn and Frayed

I heard that Mick wrote the lyrics with Keith in mind. Anybody hear the same?

>> I heard that Mick wrote the lyrics with Keith in mind <<

i've heard that (among other theories) about both these numbers

Keith, be well - all the way, baby, all the way

Shine a Light (by a hair). I'd give Shine a Light 10 and Torn and Frayed 9.5.

I'm sorry nikki - this is a mandatory exercise. You receive no diplomatic immunity on this board. I'll expect your answer in ten minutes, so you better start thinking.

Wasn't looking too good, but I was feeling real well.

Damn, no diplomatic immunity? That's what the French police said to me the other night, too . . .

FINE. Torn an Frayed ever so slightly. There. Actually, no. Shine a Light. Ah damn it - how about this:

Tumbling Dice

TD may be my favourite Stones song of all time. And be careful, you'll end up in my own personal shit heap if you keep knocking Hang Fire!

TD is just good. May be built much upon lyrics,
to which at least I rarely care about much.
But in Shine... I do, cause they form a perfect
harmony with pace, rhythm, and melody...

I'm not bv Cindy but you are going way to far, it's about T&F and SAL

I love your anarchistic treat of the thread-themes, Cindy.
Give them h*ll!

Re: Part 3 Exile - Torn And Frayed versus Shine A Light

For what it's worth,I don't like the idea of these threads.They just invite people to put down quality songs.Torn And Frayed & Shine A Light are two completely different types of songs.I can't say one is any better or worse than the other - apples & oranges,both excellent tracks.
I think a good idea might be to compare underrated Stones songs to (maybe somewhat similar) overrated songs from the same era by other artists or perhaps even the other way around.I'm just throwing an idea out there.

I can't decide either, Nicos.
It's like "should I cut off your right foot....or your left foot?"

Shine A Light is one of my most loved songs on Exile, TAF is beautiful, but doesn´t appeal to me in the same way....

Two practically perfect songs -- no way for me to really choose between the studio versions, but Shine a Light works a little better live, i think...

Torn and Frayed by a mile.

Shine A Light is by far my least favorite song on Exile - maybe my least favorite song from the 4 album peak.

However, I do enjoy the earlier version (Get A Line on You) quite a bit more.

Very difficult one...... but TAF takes the lead by a very small inch.....

TAF is what I like with the album..... great ballad..... much better than f.x. Yesterday or any other stupid Beatles ballad.... or Mull of Kintyre.... if there was any justice in this world TAF would have outsold MOK tenfold.....
