I got a brand new car
And I like to drive real hard
I got a brand new car
And I'm feeling good so far
Take her on the highway for a little spin
I want to see the kind of shape she's in
And I got a brand new star
Jack her up baby, go on, open the hood
I want to check if her oil smells good
Mmmm...smells like caviar
Give her some stick
Push her too far
Right to the brink
Hear the motor running
Yeah, she's right in sink
Tell me if she's thirsty
Would she like a drink
And I'm stopping at this bar
Slinky like a panther
You can hear her purr
Touch her on the seat
Go on, feel the fur
And I got a brand new star
Feel the juice
Foot to the floor
Take some abuse
I got a brand new car
And I drive her in the dark
And I got a brand new car
I think I'll stop and park

It's been 25 years already, since 'VooDoo Lounge' ? Wow. Saw the Stones in the Kingdome here in Seattle that Tour. I don't think they played this. Didn't play it here at Key Arena in 2005 either. Saw them last Wednesday at Century Link here in Seattle, and they didn't play it. Maybe next Tour, huh?
Until then, thanks RP, for breaking the monotony.
LONG LIVE THE ROLLING STONES !
p.s.
I gave this a ten. Because.

The Stones are great...but this isn\'t...give me the old stuff. I\'m not going to pay $400 a pop to hear this in concert.
A prolific band like the Rolling Stones should never be condemned for experimenting. However, it\'s perfectly acceptable to point out that this experiment is crap.

I think you are being way too broad. Such reasoning would rule out some lesser known and very cool songs you would probably enjoy if properly showcased in the swirl of Paradise. I agree with you that this is a rather trite and pedestrian offering from the Stones. But judge not the whole from something as unrepresentative as this. Peace.
To my ears, anyway, there are some really worthy deep cuts on VOODOO LOUNGE, I just don't think this is one of them. I much prefer "Moon is Up", "Blinded by Rainbows" followed by "Out of Tears" and even "The Worst". A pretty solid album with "Love is Strong" and "You Got Me Rockin'" - a good raveup.

Good catch.
It\'s a great tune and the lyric is a typical Mick Jagger, full of humour. One of me favorite tracks from this album
Nice segue, Bill. How \'bout more of the occasional themed sets?
I liked the bass playing on this one and thought it was a surprise compared to the other bassplaying Daryll Jones did after replacing Bill Wyman. Then I discovered Keith was playing this part!
I thought this was an under-rated tune off this album. Keith and Ronny have a cool gee-tar thang happening, but the whole metaphor of girl-as-car is a little tired. Reminds me of the scene in Spinal Tap where they\'re intellectually analysing the lyrics to \"Sex Farm\". Right. :roll:
Mick nicked old E.E. Cummings for this one. Good song.
