Favorite Songs: Part IX


There are Rolling Stones songs I love more than this one, but I’m featuring this because its brand new and a sign that the band can still crank it. I love the drumming and guitar links on this track, and the lyrics are mean and nasty, the way I like it when it comes to the Stones. “I try to stay sober but I end up drunk” is my favorite lyric.
