justforyou I enjoy Worried About You, and its video too - with Mick throwing away that burned out cigarette! Angie is the real heart wrencher for me, but I'm still in denial about it ;-)

Moonisup is there a video from Worried about you, never seen that one!!!! Where can I find that one
10-20-02 07:26 AM
justforyou I got the Worried video from Winmx, took quite some time though...

luxury1 well, I have another one to add. I just listened to Keys to Your Love from 40 Licks, and it is just soooooo good. Especially fitting for this "wicked little tour." And I love how it is mixed. Nice

FotiniD "Coming down again" does it for me.

I used to say that the Stones write killer fast songs, but when they come to writing a ballad, it sure makes you melt down and cry. I still stand by that.

Loving Cup, Wild Horses, Sister Morphine, of course. But Coming Down Again is the one for me.
10-20-02 08:29 AM
Moonisup oh no, I forgot "loving cup" and memory motel. and no use in crying, heaven, man there are so much!! Thru and Thru is also a killer!!! Man the write great ballads, a pitty the big public doesn't know them!! We all have te luxury of knowing them, that puts us in a special position!!
10-20-02 08:53 AM
luxury1 Now dont all you yahoos go throwing rotten vegetables at me, but I have always loved the Stones ballads/bluesy stuff the best.
10-20-02 08:55 AM
luxury1 Now we all have to get after Voodoo to make good on his somewhat backhanded offer to make us a "Rocks Off Special Moments" CDr. He is too damn funny (and my, how romatic!)

Is your Toronto Sessions called Peaches Gone South?
Mine is, but I know now, people can remake anything and change the titile just like Ronnie changed the lead solo on YCAGWYW on the 81-82 Tours every night...

Those Toronto Sessions get to me too.
I soak it up like a spounge.

Sir Stonesalot Wild Horses, Sweethearts Together.

Both played at my wedding. I wanted my wife and I to exit the sanctuary to "Sympathy For The Devil"....but I got shut down on that one bigtime.

I don't mean to be a stickler....but "I Got The Blues" isn't a ballad. It's a slow blues, as is "Love In Vain." It's a very subtle difference, but a big one. Just because the song is at a slow tempo doesn't make it a ballad. I saw quite a few songs on that list that really are not ballads.

But hey, great songs all...can't go wrong including them on any compilation set.

Damm that sounds good. Almost perfect.

lmao...SS, are you sure you've never met my husband?

I planned our entire wedding without a bat-of-an-eye from him. He only had one request...when meeting with the organist at the church, he had asked her if she knew the music to 'Under My Thumb'. Apparently, he thought that would be an appropriate song for my father to 'walk me down the aisle' to.

Ha! I'm happy to report that she played, 'The Bridal March' by Lohengrin.
