Stones Monkeying Around

Holy madness! And it came out in 1969 on Let It Bleed.

I was watching Goodfellas with mancub this springtime and when Jimmy and Henry are hanging out in the coffee shop getting ready for Tommy to be "made", Scorsece throws in some classic Stones Monkey. This song absolutely haunts. The piano intro, the slide guitar over Keiths' sloppy telecaster, and Mick is never one to mind belting out idiotic phrases that mean nothing--and yet oh, so much. "I'm a cold Italian pizza".

And that tambourine.  Oh, that tambourine.

Anyone who can resist turning this classic to full volume can fuggedaboutit!
