No. 76: ‘Cherry Oh Baby’ – Top 100 Rolling Stones Songs
It appears that the boys of the Rolling Stones can do no wrong. They're rock and roll; they're gospel-like; they're soulful; and with 'Cherry Oh Baby' -- a tune off of 1976's 'Black and Blue' -- they demonstrate their comfort and skill in the world of reggae.
It's very rare for a band to be able to such wide-ranging creative ground -- which is why we must bow to the Stones. Nothing proves their versatility more than this cover of Eric Donaldson's classic 1971 song.
With Mick Jagger's vocals revealing his love and knowledge of the genre, darting in and out alongside Ronnie Wood's sharp guitar jabs throughout the song, 'Cherry Oh Baby' is a total win for the Stones.
