Other than, that while it doesn't dishonor their legacy, it mostly strikes me as sounding like a collection of middling Stones B-sides (which is not a bad thing) and that the only song that really, really rouses me from my pastoral torpor (unsurprisingly) is Keith's big slow number.
And I can live with that.
Anyway, reason I bring up the Stones is twofold. To begin with, I'd never seen this clip -- a remake of "Love in Vain" -- before a few days ago, and I don't know exactly when it was done and why, but it just knocks me out, and I thought I'd share.
Seriously, when people talk about those guys being the greatest rock-and-roll band in the world, that's the kind of thing they're talking about.
Secondly, I mention the Stones because, coincidentally (heh) they're the subject of this week's Weekend Essay Question.
And so to business. To wit:
...and your favorite obscure Stones track -- i.e.,not one of their hits, or even an often-referenced album cut -- is...?
In case you were wondering, mine is this one -- the ridiculously out of tune guitars and backing vocals notwithstanding. The song just kills me, and I always wanted to cover it.
And your choices would be...?
And have a great weekend, everybody!!!
