My Music Monday

I like the Rolling Stones.

Granted they've been around for 1,556 years, so they are bound to have a number of good songs since they've started carving them on  cave walls back when dinosaurs roamed the Earth.

Yes, they 'move like Jagger' but Mick is 70 years old. Those type of folks usually move with walkers and canes. Someone forgot to mention that to Maroon 5.

"Gimme Shelter" is probably my favourite Stones song, and when I was a pre-teen, I remember waiting by the radio to hear "Angie", though I normally turn that whenever it hits XM. It has more than run its course in my books.

But when we saw Argo the other day, the movie included what is most likely my second favourite Stones song - "Little T&A".

Mind you, the song was inappropriately placed, as the film is based in 1979-1980 and the album, Tattoo You was released in 1981.  Mr. Affleck's music supervisor did not do his or her job.  Tsk Tsk.

Besides the guitar riff (which is great), I swear one of the reasons I like the song so much is that Jagger doesn't handle lead vocals - they are sung by that freak of nature, who has somehow defied (yet looks like) death - Keith Richards.

"T&A" was never a hit, there is no video, so you get a static picture in the YouTuber, but you also get the song.  ...and it is My Music Monday, not supposed to be My Video Monday.

I dare my cousin to make of fun of my music choice this week. I dare him.

Great song. It’s been a while since I have listened to “Tattoo You”. It also contains one of my favorite Stones songs. “Heaven”.
