I can’t believe I’ve had this blog for nearly a year and haven’t done a Stones post yet. What is wrong with me?? I also consciously remembered Mick’s birthday and failed to do a celebratory post, so I am going to make up for that right…now.
What I love about the Stones is that they’ve covered so many genres, and they do it so well. ESPECIALLY blues. They are also great at country rock, which is one of the main reasons Exile On Main Street is my favorite album ever. That being said, I feel that a shameless video-post is in order, to demonstrate the versatility and pure wicked awesomeness that is the Rolling Stones:
BLUES: You Gotta Move
Keith is god.
FUNK: Hot Stuff
70s clothes = THE BEST!
DISCO: Miss You
Mick can wear (or not wear) whatever he wants and get away with it, haha.
COUNTRY: Dead Flowers
This is one of my favorite songs of all time.
100% ROCK & ROLL: Rip This Joint
I could go on…old standards, 60s pop, psychedelia, soul, gospel…but I need to end this before I spend all night on YouTube. More to come later, because the Stones definitely deserve some love!
