xxpost eisbaer otm. Gene uses those epithets as some kind of weapon to get a reaction. Keef's affection always seems legit.

I would like Keef to call me darlin.

i know people of taste who really dig "fool to cry." i'm not one of them but.

would take "worried about you" over "fool to cry" or "memory motel" without hesitation.

I Don't Know Why was written by Stevie Wonder, correct? Or did he just cover it too? Anyway, if you know Stevie Wonder's version, I prefer it to the Stones' (xp)
Yeah, that's true about Fool to Cry--sort of a one off, but I like it alot

Iago Galdston, Friday, 30 March 2012 20:45 (2 years ago) Permalink

'I Don't Know Why' was what they were recording on the night Brian Jones died, it says here.

Yep, it's a Stevie Wonder tune. I love Stevie's version (it was way up on my Stevie ballot), and I'm glad I heard it first. But the Stones version has more drama. And it has Mick Taylor.

Is there anyone out there but me who likes Fool to Cry?

i love Stones R&B covers, wanted to vote for "Ain't Too Proud To Beg" and "Just My Imagination" but it seemed simpler and wiser to stick with originals

Eisbaerg Slim (some dude), Friday, 30 March 2012 20:48 (2 years ago) Permalink

btw Undercover is not a fab album but "All the Way Down" is a good tune

Euler, Friday, 30 March 2012 20:48 (2 years ago) Permalink

I voted for Fool To Cry. Placed it pretty low, but it's such a lovely melody.

I was going to say I placed "Memory Motel" at the bottom of my ballot but I haven't submitted it yet.

"Memory Motel" is so strong that even the version with Dave Matthews in 1998 has Keith in great voice (the crowd goes apeshit too).

There are so many gems on these late albums though. If I ever host a dinner party I'm going to put my ballot on a CD to confuse guests - there'll be this amazing soundtrack that sounds like the Stones tearing through Stones classics, but nobody's ever heard any of them.

you should post a few tubes, IK, like other posters who've been trying to proselytize for the underappreciated (!voteforchildofthemoonnow!). i say this cuz i don't really know the post-undercover stuff at all at all. i only know that i don't like any of the later singles and have had no luck listening to random tracks.

Try this one, contenderizer. It's not major but I love its groove:

it would feel perverse to vote for "Continental Drift" but I dig it lots

Euler, Friday, 30 March 2012 20:54 (2 years ago) Permalink

this is a REALLY killer ballad:

Laugh I Nearly Died is pretty good, I really liked Bigger Bang a lot.

Peppermint Patty Hearst (VegemiteGrrl), Friday, 30 March 2012 20:57 (2 years ago) Permalink

and you can find most of these albums for a couple cents on Amazon.

This is pretty great imo - as good as anything hair metal was putting out at the time. That sounds like a backhanded compliment, but it's not, except maybe insofar as you should be able to spot the Stones in Bruce, but not the other way round.

It was a single, but a totally failed one. I'm deliberately not posting the video btw.

surprised how many people saying how sucky IOR'n'R is...i only slightly disagree but GHS is greater suck!

One Hit to the Body --- god I forgot about that. I remember digging that one as a kid.

Peppermint Patty Hearst (VegemiteGrrl), Friday, 30 March 2012 21:09 (2 years ago) Permalink

thanks, all (but don't let that stop you from posting more). will check these when i get home. "one hit" didn't do much for me at the time, but maybe i'll like it more now.

GHS is brilliant, or at least half of it is, though i don't expect any of you to understand

GHS is really good. Angie, Winter AND Star Star on there. I mean, come on.

I'm generally not a fan of Keith songs, but this one is very charming

Ismael Klata, Friday, 30 March 2012 21:13 (2 years ago) Permalink

(I'm assuming it's a Keith number, but possibly Jagger smoked a pound of Tarmac before stepping up to the mic)

Ismael Klata, Friday, 30 March 2012 21:14 (2 years ago) Permalink

Dirty Work has "One Hit," "Hold Back," "Winning Ugly," and my favorite Keef ballad, "Sleep Tonight."

it is, Ismael.

why is "doot doot (heartbreaker)" so bad and hated? all-time for the keyboard work alone.

preternatural concepts concerning variances in sound and texture (contenderizer), Friday, 30 March 2012 21:27 (2 years ago) Permalink

I love it, personally, it's such a groove. I pissed myself laughing when I found a live bootleg where Mick introduces it, talking really fast, as 'this one's called ... Doo-Doo-Doo Doo-Doo'

Ismael Klata, Friday, 30 March 2012 21:31 (2 years ago) Permalink

And those horns!

Ismael Klata, Friday, 30 March 2012 21:33 (2 years ago) Permalink

lol yes, that live heartbreaker intro is hilar

I just heard him do that on Brussels Affair, so lol

pretty amazing version after mick has his larf

tylerw, Friday, 30 March 2012 21:39 (2 years ago) Permalink

based on comments itt i gotta stand up and say:
• "i got the blues" is classic for the horns alone
• "love is a bed for the blues" is as good a lyric as rock music has to offer
• and by the time it all comes together around the 3:00 mark I believe every word Jagger's corny english ass is saying. fake it so real.

Sent! Was easier than I thought, but could have been 30-40 songs too.

okay, folks, i tried with those post-undercover tracks, really i did. no go. won't trash anything in detail or by name, but not for me.

Gotta rep for "Undercover of the Night" which still sounds awesome to these ears - crisp and exciting with those lovely falsetto ooh-oohs. Chris Kimsey and the Glimmer Twins really knew how to produce awesome sounding Stones music. I think this is why I am still not sick of "Start Me Up" - it's just such a great sounding song.

Kent Burt, Saturday, 31 March 2012 14:05 (2 years ago) Permalink

Both Undercover and Heartbreaker made my list!

broom air, Saturday, 31 March 2012 15:04 (2 years ago) Permalink

"Heartbreaker" (sorry, DOO-DOO-DOO-DOO-DOO) made mine, "Undercover" nearly did.

everyone voted for Heart Of Stone and Play With Fire, right?

gospodin simmel, Saturday, 31 March 2012 15:51 (2 years ago) Permalink

I never took to that early folk side of them--I don't even think I cared for those two songs when I bought Hot Rocks as a teenager. Useless addendum: if memory serves, "Play with Fire" is Metal Mike Saunders' favourite Rolling Stones' song. Not sure what Mick Jagger's favourite Angry Samoans song is.

Heart of Stone was one of my last cuts :(

umm, those were among my early cuts. it's not that i don't like them - i do! - just that i wanted to rep hard for my non-hot rocks favorites. i probably should have saved some love for play with fire, though. used to be so confused by the apparent contradiction in the "owns a block in st. john's wood" line.
