Goddamn this tune. As good as anything they ever release, or even that that other band put out imho:
"I live inside my own heart, Matt Damon." - Prince

Sous les pavés, la plage.

Shit. Listening to one of the two alt. takes of "I Got the Blues" from the '71 Marquee Club gig this very moment. It's not 3 o'clock in the morning anymore but I'm still drankin' and thankin' of you, Shelly. And singing my song for you. (oh, here come the alt. takes of "Bitch". How a-fucking-ppropriate :mrgreen: ).

Either Paint it Black or Sympathy for the Devil.

When i was younger i never really cared for them because i only ever heard their later stuff. I didnt listen to the commercual radio too much because in the NYC area there were so many other good options. Eventually i heard these 2 songs and they struck me right away. From there i explored other songs. Still dont care for anything from the mid 70s forward. But the 60s early 70s stuff is great.

Two fantastic songs for sure, but - dude...this is like Kory saying he doesn't dig the Ramones. :naughty:

I Didnt mean to pull a Kory or a reverse Heston I love the early stuff. But the later stuff ive heard doesnt grab me but granted im only going by the singles. Ive never done a deep dive on any of the 80s and later material.

Well, 'Some Girls' was from '78 and is widely considered a stone classic by almost all folk. 'Tattoo You' ('81, though some of it was re-worked from earlier '70s sessions) was also huge and is popularly and critically held in high esteem.

To my mind, the Stones are similar to the Ramones (or maybe AC/DC, if you go for them): they have a formula that they stick with (albeit a more diverse one than da brudders Ramone), and they deliver that vibe consistently and unfailingly, to this day. In my not so humble opinion, of course.

I've said it before, but I much, much prefer Mick's London School of Economics voice to his trying to badly impersonate Bo Diddley.

So fucking great. And so fucking relatable sometimes, which is a terrible thing to admit.

I'm with Rev here, most stuff after Exile leaves me cold. Love their 1964-69 output.
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

I'm a big Stones fan, the Brian era is classic, the 70's they were untouchable, 80's and beyond they are hit or miss. Personally I think they should have hung it up after 2002 tour. Pretty cringe worthy now, just watched a periscope of there opening night in Germany last week, Sympathy was painful to listen to.

I'll admit, having never seen them in person before, seeing 'em at Desert Trip last year was a complete fucking blast.

I've seen every tour since 1981 and after A Bigger Bang I said that's it...I liked the album but the live show didn't move me..that being said I think their appearance at Glastonbury was awesome and wished I was there. I love that show and watch it often. Hyde park...meh

Dr. Hestrev. I'll never be a fan—can't get past Mick's voice—but I'm good with their more significant songs from the 60s. Crucial historically, but not my taste aesthetically.
