Bluegrass Lyrics

Paperback , pages. Published December 1st by Xlibris Corporation first published January 1st Lasers are cool, right? You know who did an indisputably amazing cover of this song? Jagger gets in some tough harmonica blowing on this effortless blues. This mid-tempo rocker, though, has a winning lightness, with a weird digression into echoed vocal effects. As if. Not a fun performance, but a committed one. His harmonica playing gives this cocky number its giddyup.

More people should know Magic Sam, who died at just 32 years old, in West Side Soul is the album to get. Anyway, the Stones take the tune for a too leisurely stroll. The Burdon song is better. Charlie tries his best to add some jolt to this slightly stodgy pop tune. And an audible clam by Brian Jones at The opening guitar spirals and the verse melody are pretty. Keith, frequent post-Wyman bassist Darryl Jones, and Charlie Watts pull off the rub-your-head-and-pat-your-belly trick of sounding simultaneously coiled and propulsive.

Mick finds an interesting incantatory melody for the bridge and outro.

Charlie Watts and guest bassist Meshell Ndegeocello are a good team. Mostly because the result sounds like good rockabilly. Oompah-loompah trombone completes the farcical feel. Ronnie and Keith stir up a tense fuss. A question best left to the philosophers. That counts for a lot. This song would be higher if Jagger came up with a less hackneyed lyrical premise than an affair between an adult and a high-school student.

Does Mick Jagger practice playing the harmonica? Which is both almost a cliche from him at this point and maybe also a backhanded compliment. It was a good call. The conga breakdown is rad. I do not miss the days when rock bands took jailbait as standard lyrical subject matter.

  5. The track has a deft rustic blues vibe, with Mick — on vocals and harmonica — and Ron Wood, on slide guitar, playing with easy authority. He shines here; His slide-guitar playing is sly, he tootles impressively on the harmonica. He was more than just a pretty face and a sad ending. The rhythm section handles lightly swinging grooves like this so comfortably, and Jagger shows off how expert he is at harmonica with nicely chattering runs. Stones songs about friendship are charmers. This is a lovely, semi-epic ballad.

    The band does solid British Invasion motorvating behind him. I get it.


    Deluxe Edition The best of the officially released Exile outtakes is this mid-tempo lament. Wright and Otis Redding both recorded titanic versions of this pleading soul ballad. The second half of Tattoo You is all slow songs and all great. The rowdy garage-rock energy that the Stones generate on this Bo Diddley cover, from , can still jurgle your nurgles. Nothing more, nothing less. The music is an effervescent mix of galloping rock and doo-wop backing vocals.

    The music is funny — jaunty piano, kazoo, and electric dulcimer, the latter two instruments played by the crafty Brian Jones. Here he applies it to a lovely, yearning melody. Listen to the way the music on this ballad builds momentum, the way the tempo picks up when the guitar solo kicks in, the way Mick shifts to a growl once the song finds its new tempo.

    Song List -

    Not many bands can play such a soft tune with so much rhythmic and arranging intelligence. Charlie plays more fills than usual, lending the track a brawnier punch than was typical for the band during this period. Mentholated sandwiches? Sounds like a case of Dylanitis. Praise be that the music is entrancing, winding blues rock.

    This is the best bad Rolling Stones song. The horn arrangement on this rocker is pulse quickening. An alternative version , released in is also pretty great. There, they turned it into bubbly pop, a bouquet of bongos, autoharp, harpsichord, and marimba. Brian Jones plays a wry dulcimer part. Then something amazing happens, as if the song were shaking off its own cobwebs, and it starts to breathe. An acoustic guitar wriggle here; a groovy Fender Rhodes there.

    Richards coaxes some wry mojo from his thin vocals, and it all floats on a bed of bluesy backing vocals and saxophone. I suspect the glossy production on this song and the album has led to people overlooking it. The atmosphere is perfect junkyard. And Charlie puts a bow on it. The Stones owe Freddy for writing a song they could have so much fun with. Meanwhile, Brian Jones plays gleaming soprano sax off in the background. They knew it, too.

    Then the philosophical bucolica is shattered by wah-wah hard rock, half-time country funk, and a charging outro. A Stones original from Exile that sounds, thrillingly, like a cover of some obscure blues boogie. Saxophonist Bobby Keys and guitarist Mick Taylor let their solos rip. Unlike most Keith-sung tunes.
