suppose you didn't hear this song with any baggage or weights- any - pre concieved ideas about the artist - any predjudice - i think its kind of cool , just a bit of fun - jeez its not like its supposed to be the answer to your salvation - lighten up - holy mercy!
A weaker song off a pretty good album. For you doubters, try "Rain Fall Down"
Ever drive down the road and get stuck behind a really slow vehicle and it turns out to be somebody really old driving? And when you pull around to pass, the old man/lady yells out "Slow down sonny, you're driving too fast!" For some reason, this song makes me think that I'm passing Mick or Keith on the road .
Wow, there sure are a lot of negative feelings about this album. It sounds like a lot of classic Stones music to me, and it definitely got me moving. I actually had to click on the link to find out that it was from the latest album--is there a bit of bias based on that information?
who do these guys think they're fooling? we all know how slow elderly men drive...

Love the Stones. But they should stick to their classics. It's hard to be a relevant rock-n-roll band when you're 92 years old.

Try this. Pick up a good book, maybe some actual poetry, and put on some Stones to play in the background. Lets be realistic. The Springsteens & Dylans of the popular music world are few and far between. Often people make the mistake that because they can "relate" to a musician's lyrics, that, in itself, indicates a talent for writing. Somehow, a few decades back, we seem to have forgotten that music is a communications form in itself. It has the ability to communicate complex ideas and emotions that can't easily be put into words.

These guys should have stopped recording new music about 20 years ago. They have a large enough back catalog of good music to draw from and they can tour yearly until they die, people will still pay $200 bucks to go see 'em.
Yawn.
crap
