Welcome back to the next installment in the 100 greatest Rolling Stones songs. I know I said that this part would be up within 24 hours of the last, but a shitty meeting at my shitty job blocked that from happening. That, and dinner, and a trip to the gym. But with that being said, let's get down to brass tacks and keep this going.
90.) The Worst: 1994, Voodoo Lounge: An acoustic Keith ballad. Very much a jazz/country style tune, if that makes sense.
89.) Look What The Cat Dragged In: 2005, A Bigger Bang: From their most recent album, the riff reminds me of the INXS song "Need You Tonight." A pretty uptempo song where Mick mocks someone for getting wasted. The irony is incredible.
88.) Rough Justice: 2005, A Bigger Bang: The lead single off the album. It sounds a lot like "Brown Sugar" and the lyrics are a little silly, but it showed that the band could still rock.
87.) Connection: 1966, Between the Buttons: Keith's earliest lead vocal performance with the band. Reminiscent of a Buddy Holly tune. Keith actually does a better job of it on his solo album with the X-Pensive Winos.
86.) Oh No Not You Again: 2005, A Bigger Bang: Another rocker off this album. Features the great lyric: Everybody's talking/Showing off their wits/The moon is yellow/My eyes are Jello/Staring down your tits
85.) Suck On The Jugular: 1994, Voodoo Lounge: A tasty little funk jam, with some sweet backup vocals from Lisa Fischer. The song doesn't really go anywhere, but I dig the groove and the vocals.
84.) Crackin' Up: 1977, Love You Live: The only song taken off a live album, it is an old blues cover. Great energy, great performance.
83.) Short and Curlies: 1974, It's Only Rock 'n Roll: A mid-tempo boogie woogie song about a woman who has control of a man. It's a fun little sing-a-long.
82.) Star Star: 1973, Goats Head Soup: Better known as "Starfucker," it has a Chuck Berry riff and lyrics making fun of Hollywood society. Live versions used to feature a giant inflatable penis onstage behind Jagger.
81.) She Was Hot: 1983, Undercover: Probably the only song on the list from this album. A good little rocker about a hot chick (obviously). One of the better songs from the Stones in the 1980s. It sounds awesome on the Shine A Light soundtrack.
That's it until tomorrow.
