A GREAT F......... BAND
One of the best rock n roll songs ever.
Love the stones
Stones rule 85 back in slhs sentinals these were the a.m rituals
Mick's girlfriend killed herself very sad.
My brother thinks that the Rolling Stones made a cover of this song AFTER Puddle of Mud did the cover of them. He can't be accept being wrong because of a mental issue, so he said that although it was playing on the station that plays nothing >1990, The Stones covered Puddle of Mud despite a wiki search which showed at least 30 different artists like Puddle of Mud. He continued with, "Wikipedia isn't reliable."
Kinda tells you what was going on in the world back then ! Hasn't changed that much really !!
My x was in nam when this came out!
Stones are one of the greatest.... .
This song leaves a taste of good ol'
Crazy life we all know it.
Nam sure was a bad time but this song kept my men to fight for our
Country
Black ops anyone follow for a follower
Like great wine, it gets better as it ages!
I love this song - only done by Grand Funk Railroad !!!
This is for. You Tom! I Love & miss u!
Nam. Yep.

Sad story
Rip
Mick
Deepest sympathy to you and her family
I'm sure all are devastated
Pray pray
God will help u thru



anyone heard of Mick Jaggers girlfriend being killed?
good definition of the purge if ya ask me
The stones got it right
IN MY OPINION using this song in movies ruined it
I'm not hearing the guiro to well on my speakers, it must've been buried in the mix.
From one of their great albums. From 1968-72, the Stones could do no wrong with Beggar's Banquet, Let It Bleed, Sticky Fingers and Exile On Main Street!

Merry Clayton is the backup vocalist. Look for a documentary titled 20 Feet From Stardom for more on her and others who sang backup for so many great songs.

Favorite tune by the STONES!
I have heard that too Jet! Best song ever!!!!!
True Story: The lady doing backup had a miscarriage after laying down these tracks. What a sacrifice.
The who shouldn't even be mentioned with Mick n the Boys
Raw- Edgy - The Stones at their Finest.
Martin needs to keep his hands off classic rock HE RUINS IT !!!!!!!!!!!
Damn skippy$$$
A classic forever!
reminds me of walter showing pictures from the rice paddies
cdrane73
Intro never gets old.....
Merry Clayton!
My favorite stone tune also Martin Scorsese favorite has been used in many movies of his also used as the entrance music for Antonio Rodrigo Minotauro Noguiera
Grand Funk Railroad is still better...
