Line(s) of the Day #GimmeShelter


War, children, it’s just a shot away

Taken from the song Gimme Shelter by The Rolling Stones from Let it Bleed (1969). One of the best known anti-war songs, it also features one of my favourite opening guitar riffs. If you’re a fan of The Rolling Stones, you might also like this previous post.

  2. I drive my husband crazy with this song. I freaking LOVE it to bits. And that opening piece? Fantastic. When the drums kick in? Goosebumps. ❤ Great pick!

  3. Got me a Rolling Stones Greatest Hits set of CDs this year and that song is on high rotation in my car. I grew up with The Beatles and The BeeGees around the house. I knew about the Stones but it feels like a more intense discovery is occurring now as an adult.
