  1. I love that song and read about it a few days ago in Keith’s book. I’m at 73% now! Yay! I don’t think it has ever taken me this long to read a book! So much to absorb!

  2. When I was in my early teenage years, I was very much into soft music. While I liked the tune more back then, I still think it’s a pretty good ballad. The Stones didn’t have many. This was definitely their best ballad.
