Not bad. I'm only a lukewarm Stones fan and haven't liked anything new from them in a long time, so not sure I'm the best judge. But I thought it had a good groove, I liked it.

I dig it. Sounds late 70's to me. Best thing in some time, I think.

I think its a really cool modern Stones song. I think I'll play it again.

Bill said...

Yeah, I dig it.

I've played it with the video and it hurts.

And I mean that, sadly, in a good way.

I really like the song. It doesn't sound like they are trying to be "current" like some previous Mick experiments. And frankly I'm a bit relieved that they are still able to create something valid after years of stagnation in the studio. Maybe they really do have one more good LP in them!

Chris Collins said...

I really like this and I did NOT expect to like this at all.

Kevin M says it well. Strong song. I also love how Dylan and the Stones are getting all streaming on us and dropping random songs whenever the mood strikes. What's next? A TikTok Dylan dance craze?

I like this new Stones song a lot. I decided to "build an album" from this, adding studio rarities from recent Stones collections "Grrr," "40 Licks" and "Rarities 1971-2003." My lineup actually hangs together well: 01. Living in a Ghost Town, 02. Doom and Gloom, 03. One More Shot, 04. Don't Stop, 05. Keys To Your Love, 06. Stealing My Heart, 07. Losing My Touch, 08. Fancy Man Blues, 09. Any Way You Look At It, 10. Wish I'd Never Met You, 11. Through The Lonely Nights, and 12. If I Was A Dancer (Dance Part 2). I stuck with studio tracks all the way, and had a lot of fun compiling it. It will actually make those rarities more familiar to me this way. I find that the odd new tracks on big collections tend to get lost in the shuffle.

@Daddykin.
Nicely done!

Daddykin said...

Thanks, Sal. :) This posting by you is the one that inspired me to do it!

I didn't know quarantine-land could sound so FUNKY. Really, really good song. They manage to capture the ennui, fear and loneliness, but it still swings... and the reggae lilt in the background adds to the escapism. Well done, Stones.

Great song, the best they have done in years!
@Daddykin Nice idea, but don't forget the B-side only track "Think I'm Going Mad", from the 1984 single for "She Was Hot".
