No. 30: ‘Bitch’ – Top 100 Rolling Stones Songs
The title of this song (along with the innuendo-laden cover art of 1971's 'Sticky Fingers') didn't help the Rolling Stones shake their women-unfriendly reputation.
However, the song's lyrics aren't a misogynistic mess; in fact, the narrator is feeling “drunk, juiced-up and sloppy” either due to drugs or love, not a problematic or mean-spirited woman.
As if inspired by the time the band spent in Muscle Shoals, the song -- which appeared on a 45 with 'Brown Sugar -- boasts peppy horns and a boogie-friendly Bill Wyman bassline, as well as white-hot guitar leads, courtesy of then-new guy Mick Taylor.
