Street Fighting Man

Lyrics

Everywhere I hear the sound of marching, charging feet, boy
'Cause summer's here and the time is right for fighting in the street, boy
Well what can a poor boy do
Except to sing for a rock 'n' roll band

Both songs came out in the late summer of '68. It's a good song but come on, Street Fighting Man vs. Revolution? Don't you know it's going to be? All right!
Street Justice oh my Never paid attention to the words before now..Comprom i s e is best....
Street justice is the best, so is fantastic mr fox
Street Fighting Man is the best rock and roll song ever. That is not my opinion - it is a fact.
Saw stones 1962 still the greatest
as a 20 yr old you don't realize how prolific the stones were the touched everything that came after and had more platinum than all the new age band put together. people even want to dance like him now lol. pout and be proud mick
I had no idea that all of the guitars on this song are acoustic recorded through a cassette recorder until reading Keith's autobiograph y . How cool!

And because of Fantastic Mr. Fox I get to sing the chorus of this song to my 4 year old twins every night. They love it!!
this song always gets me moving, Ienjoy all the covers too- a real test for a song's depth
I have only one reason I'm here: A movie called "Fantastic Mr. Fox".

The Stones rule & the Beatles SUCK!
Prez - to be sure; Mick is NOT a streetfighti n g man anymore; but back in the late 60's The Stones were pure evil! Sex - drugs - rock and roll baby! (On another related note; Jagger has been quoted as saying they were no more decadent than the Beatles. The press just liked the Beatles more and gave them a pass.)

the Stones at their Apex-Untouch a b l e !
If you think this is POP you are probably high right now. Go back to your Captain Crunch @ zinsser
Greatest rock and roll song ever. Period. Not my opionion folks - it's a fact.
forsett
Mick Jagger a streetfighti n g man? As believable as Michael Jackson truly Bad.
A case, really, of Jagger being political by accident. Great lyrics, anyway. Also, nice moody keyboard bit, on the top. Threat and malevolence in the name of pop standard.
