No. 77: ‘Dancing With Mr. D’ – Top 100 Rolling Stones Songs

Rolling Stones Goats Head Soup
Rolling Stones

This brooding track opens up the Rolling Stones‘ 1973 album ‘Goats Head Soup’ on a rather ominous note. As Stones guitarist Keith Richards was slipping further and further into drug addiction, vocalist Mick Jagger was living the celebrity lifestyle.

Coming on the heels of the Stones generally accepted masterpiece, ‘Exile On Main Street,’ the track has a decidedly dark tone. Over a swampy, repetitive guitar lick, Jagger contemplates mortality and perhaps the group’s increasingly dangerous lifestyle; knowing that perhaps their days of good fortune (at that moment in time) could be numbered.
