Honky Tonk Man You know what? Lets do a "worst of the Stones" cd. I might do it myself for fun. I think we should do a vote, the top twenty get put on the cd. I might do my own for fun if no one else is up for doing it

Here goes..

Gomper

In Another Land

STSA (See what Happens)

Under The Board Walk (cover version i know, but its BLOODY AWFUL!)

Can You Hear The Music

Back To Zero

Sex Drive

If you think about it, the Stones DO have some pretty awful tunes!!

stonedinaustralia nasty habits i take your point entirely but still stand by mine... had it with you is a disaster but that 's no reason not (or a good reason ) to love it

perhaps shambolic would have been a better description (so i hope we're cool). the fact remains the band was fractured when they made DW and i think it comes out in the sound

as rescued has so rightfully suggested this worst of thing is a bit of a bummer

but what's with you guys who are giving memo to turner the thumbs down?? that i do not understand and i think you're missing something there...

ultimately tho,if its the stones its cool - 'tho indian girl still worries me greatly when i think about it

Nasty Habits Of course we're cool, Stoned in Australia - more than once I've been gonna say something in some thread, but then you come along before me and say what I was gonna say just as good, so I don't bother. I've just been geeking on Dirty Work lately (believe it or not it was Dirty Work that turned 13 year old Nasty into a Stones fiend) and esp. Had It With You, and this seemed like the perfect time to run through some of my thoughts on it.

Dirty Work may be fractured and disjointed, but it is without a doubt emotionally real - the band may be disconnected from each other, but they are certainly into their own spite and anger. I get off on the record because it is so utterly angry and internally combustible. It sounds like the Rolling Stones could go nuclear at any second. Maybe I've perverse (of course I'm perverse - I'm Nasty) but I like that. It's certainly better than the emotionally disconnected "hypothetical world" music they've made together since, at least for genuine Stones vibe and verve.

I, like you, am surprised that so many people would put "Memo from Turner" on a worst of list of any sort - I love the words to that song, I love the sound of that song, and I love the video in Performance to that song. I love the soundtrack version, I love the version on Metamorphosis, I love that crazy alternate version that circulates, and I love my picture sleeve 45. Memo from Turner kicks ass.

But then again I like Dirty Work so what do I know?

Be bold be bold be bold be bold baby

Rescued I respect peoples dislike for Indian Girl. Its Latin/country/political hybridization(SP) don't jive well. It's an interesting failure though, and an example of the tongue in cheek country thing Jagger was playing around with at the time. His "Lesson number one, that you learn when you're young - life just keeps getting tougher and tougher refrain is cool and is reminiscent of the Faraway Eyes "down on your luck/ downright disgusted/ life ain't worth a damn" chorus. I'm a sucker for Mick's country hick imitations. Would have loved it if they would have included No Spare Parts or Do You Think I Really Care on ER.
