With apologies to the ladies this was always one of my Stones favorites.

Unfortunately, it used to be my anthem when I was in my 20s. Great vibe. On the bright side, I'm more of a Ruby Tuesday guy...now that I have a daughter.

I have three daughters and two female grand kids. Guilty pleasure I guess.

[3] Tha lovely lady in the phot above would be my guilty pleasure I think.
[2] Boat, having a daughter changes everything, don't it?

This is a guilty pleasure, and can no longer be expressed. Imagine if a new band had a song like this now? Women have ALWAYS hated this song. "The way she talks when she's spoken to..."

But as a teen and a twenty something, there is nothing like the feeling described by this one.

This is more meaningful than talking about Robbie Cano.

I've been thinking about this song all night...thanks Alex?

The production, the vision of a rock song as a hit single-although I don't think it was ever a true single release, the instrumentation. Truly a mid-60's masterpiece of rock production.

Marimba's (a nod to Belafonte?) as the hook, fuzzy bass, jazz guitar riffs, drums right up front, and Jagger's smirky ragged vocals...it's all there.
