Please allow me to introduce myself
I’m a man of wealth and taste
I’ve been around for a long, long year
Stole many a man’s soul to waste

Taken from the song Sympathy for the Devil by The Rolling Stones, from their acclaimed studio album Beggar’s Banquet (1968). I just had to add in another post for the English rock band as I saw them live earlier this year, to add to the songs of Gimme Shelter, Paint it Black and Ruby Tuesday

I see a line of cars and they’re all painted black
With flowers and my love both never to come back
I see people turn their heads and quickly look away
Like a newborn baby, it just happens every day

Taken from Paint it Black from The Rolling Stones’ studio album Aftermath (1966). A huge number one on both sides of the Atlantic, it’s still a favourite on their live tours, once I was able to see on Friday. Expect a post on it soon.

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.

Line(s) of the Day #RubyTuesday

Ruby Tuesday

There’s no time to lose, I heard her say
Catch your dreams before they slip away.

Taken from the song ‘Ruby Tuesday’ (1967) by The Rolling Stones, which was a double A-side along with ‘Let’s Spend the Night Together’, and first released from the album Between the Buttons.
