    I saw the video of Start Me Up. Charlie the drummer is laughing for just about the whole song.

    One good thing about that video is that it featured my favorite Stone band member—Ron Wood—who had joined the band in the mid-70’s and brought an extra element of fun and stage presence to the band. Also, some nights, including the concert I attended, Keith was inebriated on something to the point he wasn’t anywhere near 100% or even 75%. Ron Wood, as the second guitarist, was the iron man who always carried the guitar work when Keith was having an off night. IMHO, Ron Wood was one of the greatest, lesser known rockers in the history of the genre.

    Not to overanalyze things, but...
    overanalyze, overanalyze, overanalyze...

    Maybe, what Mick was getting at in Start Me Up was one of those situations that you hear about on the news where the sex was so wild the man died of a heart attack in the act. Then the lyrics would make sense without being sicko.

    I always thought MM's song was "wrapped up like a douche", it's really "revved up like a duece". I finally realized it when I got better stereo equipment.

    Jimmy Buffet once suggested to me “Why don’t we get drunk and spew?”
    What exactly is a “snuff queen” anyway?

    Sunglasses at Night.

    I guess I missed the DJ giving the title of the song. For a long time I though Corey Hart was singing, "I wear my sunDRESSES at night...."

    Well, it was written by the king of the douchecanoes himself, so I'll go with the douche lyric.

    First, I had to go way back to see what you referenced. Secondly, did I mention, she was a sooner fan?

    I used to think he was going downtown just looking for some "touch".

    Not sure if he's giving tips to his son or little brother on that first trip to the Mexico border, or what, in this song. It doesn't seem like he's singing/talking to a girl here.
