QuoteStoneage QuoteWitness One suggestion I would like to add: The song, the way it is sung, is not only highly inspired. It comes over to my ears as a most personally felt song. That is a vital part of its magic. You're kidding us, surely. "Personally felt." "Magic". Jagger giving real love and his lover/wife wanting diamonds and treating him cruelly. Magic, isn

A much later edit: My mobile tries to "correct" what I write, with my Norwegian as a reference. I don't always discover these alterations. In this case my trying to correct it back to what I originally wrote, even resulted in a double posting.

A fine read, Doxa, especially the third paragraph. One suggestion I would like to add: The song, the way it is sung, is not only highly inspired. It comes over to my ears as a most personally felt song. That is a vital part of its magic.

Quotegeorgie48 QuoteWitness If UNDERCOVER had been more favourably received, Keith and Mick would have had larger incentives to make their contributions into a mutual effort. To me that was the fatal occasion, georgie48, I have thought for a long time. Several Stones albums could have followed. You're right.

QuoteDandelionPowderman QuoteStoneage At the time I thought it was one of the stronger tracks on "She's The Boss". In hindsight it's very 1985 though. Synths all over the place. And the lyrics...Jagger's philandering love life - I don't give a damn. I thought those were strings and piano? I want to honour your factual approach here and above in the earlier pos

QuoteGlam Descendant You know there's two versions right? I have to admit that I am not aware. I only know about the version from SHE'S THE BOSS. And then I even belong to those, who consider that version to be a great song.

QuoteStonedAsiaExile Intellect vs balls, thinkin' man's band vs feeling and emotions and guts, both are great though I prefer the Stones. I really like David Gilmour, though. I did see PF in Chapel Hill, NC in 1987 I think, around that time. 2 shows. No regrets but I would take the Stones over them any day of the week. My point of view: It is not about "thinking man's

Quotestonesstein While Coming Down Again sounds like what it is - a junkie ballad from a guy too wasted to care, people who matter (the Stones) deemed it worthy to be on GHS back when. I wish they had put Chris Cross Man on GHS instead of CDA, but they didn't ask me. (Imagine that?) As for All the Rage, it's no more a GHS song that the Exile "remake" trax like Plundered an

It has been a long time since I listened to the only very few albums that I have got from Marvin Gaye. However, to me even his own album, MPG, is much to prefer to WHAT'S GOING ON. That was a highly strange choice.

QuoteStoneage To play the cynic: Basically everything after Tattoo You is redundant. They could have quit in 1982. Wouldn't have made a difference. By the late seventies, everything was done. Nothing more to add. If I were to play that cynic, I had to declare TATTOO YOU to be redundant as well. Only with "Waiting on a Friend" really to keep. On the other hand, every song on UNDE

My latest and probably(?) my last Rolling Stones concert was in Stockholm, 2017. I had to look it up and find that it was on October 12 at Friends Arena, Solna. With the largely unchanged setlists, one concert was enough for me. With only one concert I enjoyed it very much. Had I seen more than one, however, what I then experienced as very, very good and sometimes great, would have worn off

Maybe controversial, but personally I do think though that the influence from the Otis Redding version on Stones later live versions of "Satisfaction" detracts somewhat from the greatness of the song, compared with the earlier live renditions of it from the Stones, that is, the few I have heard. I guess that parts of the menace about the original song is lost that way. Saying this

QuoteChacho They can't get back on the road. We are in the middle of the worst pandemic in 100 years. Yes, they could do a "Tatoo You" type album. In my opinion their song writing days are over with; judging from what they have released since "Steel Wheels". That's why they should stick to a "Tatoo You" type album. Either that, or let "Blue a

I for one do like "All About You" and consider it one of the three alltime great songs of EMOTIONAL RESCUE, whereas I am not at all delighted by CROSSEYED HEART. And if some might think that you are and have to be a relentless anti- Keith basher, if you are not delighted by CROSSEYED HEART, I am one who did appreciate TALK IS CHEAP, and I still do so.
