Beats of the Day

Hell, let’s make it an ass-kickin’ two-fer:

Heh .... I was just listening to some of my fave Stones song (beyond the "classics") on my iPhone.

Monkey Man
Little T&A
Just My Imagination
Sad Sad Sad
Mixed Emotions
Rock and a Hard Place
etc etc etc

Top stuff, off to get my fix of Gimme Shelter now.

Diane, you started to lose me with that Steel Wheels trio, but those first four are fantastic. I find the only tunes I go back to on Steel Wheels are Keith's gorgeous "Slipping Away" and the faux-60s baroque "Blinded By Love."

So when it comes to underplayed and ass-kicking, let me add:

Ventilator Blues
She Said Yeah
Silver Train....I could go on for a while, ya know?

Yes, I am a bit of a Stones geek.

i've been listening to "Bitch" a lot lately - but a cover version by Bay Area Thrash Metal legends Exodus! it's actually an excellent version, with the Tower of Power horn section on there!

i played Jumpin' Jack Flash in a high school band and extended the ending so i could add every drum fill in the world that i knew! : )

i saw the Steel Wheels tour at Shea Stadium, with Living Colour opening up. i like a decent amount of old Stones tunes, but actually don't own any, as i'm not a huge fan of the band, but Jagger was amazing as a frontman.

[2] where in England are you? i toured pretty extensively throughout the UK and dated a girl from there, as well...

Great tracks!

Sway, Monkey Man, Let It Bleed, Live With Me, Stop Breaking Down...so many great non-singles Stones songs.

thelarmis, not a Charlie Watts fan? Stones i the Mick Taylor-era were a solid unit!
