Listened to this in vetnam everyday
This song is considered, by many, as the Stones' greatest. Damn good song, but I'll take Sympathy For The Devil.
LOVE THIS SONG AND AWESOME SONG FROM THE MOVIE GOODFELLAS
Pantera/ cowboys from hell ••• nirvana/ love buzz ••• something corporate/ Jordan ••• clinic\ walking with thee ••• awolnation/ it's not your fault ••• st anger \ Metallica
RANDOM : People tend to hype climate change, it's a good conversation piece, in fact, I noticed no-one really makes campfires as they used to, everyone seeks indoor comfort, fire is a natural element needed to keep our world in simple balance, fire causes wind, rain , and car emissions are new , if you think about it, so, with that said, make a friendly camp fire and support electric vehicles and alternative energies
I dominate, i owned this mutha, i excel in everything I do above the rest, I am a winner and it feels so great
Perfect Friday is when I sit and listen to my tunes!
say iphone 5 times pick color. and look under pillow post 5 times.
That's death metal - dumb dumbs
Death radio
Do you believe in cheating death ?
Nirvana : love buzz
Wow - watch you tube video : Wizard of Oz/Pink Floyd
Pandora rocks
A bird in the hand, is worth two in the bush
Would you rather be on the bottom in a world of winners, or a winner in a world of losers ? I'd take the world of winners, one can always work their way to top :)
This song exemplifies the cool sound that the Stones created back then.
Impossible for me to hear this song too many times.

I still need to find a Steel Wheels tour T-shirt. I have Voodoo Lounge, and Bridges To Babylon. All 3 shows were GREAT. Ahh, to be back in San Diego, now that winter's here.
Man, best opening to a song...
Just a kiss away ...

Didn't jimi Hendrix rat out his posse ?

God dam. I'm pushing 60. And I still love rocking hard to the stones
Word Nancy. War, children, it's just a shot away!

Stones at their pinnacle. The tension in this song is exquisite.
The movie Apocalypse Now had one of their songs in it
This is a great song, but why does Scorsese have to use it in all his films?
Really love this song, a lot! Blues-rock goodness, ahoy!! \m/
Cool
Awesome!
The background singer makes that song! Pandora needs to acknowledge Merry Clayton
VIETNAM AND EL SALVADOR SOUNDTRACKS

God Bless Merry Clayton!Kiss KiethSomeBod y for his open tuning.
SLACK KEY.....OH BABY NOW.ITT DOPE....
All Night Long!Huge Fan Frontrow stripper.
North Shore Ripper.Shoot when will we be blessed with another appearance?L o v e everyone of these Gentelmen!!! x x x o o
@Aridz9494 the stones kill babies. Only adds to their cred as the most dangerous rock and roll band .
Stones are stoned during this time period...suc h a dynamic group to still be around after all these years enduring the drug culture...an d much more...This song is an example of their Stellar abilities... . .
This is the best song by the stones.
This song goes down as having THE best background vocals ever---I just love to hear that woman screaming her heart out in the back!! =h=
