No. 100: ‘Emotional Rescue’ – Top 100 Rolling Stones Songs

Rolling Stones Emotional Rescue
Rolling Stones Records / Atlantic Records

If the Rolling Stones flirted with disco on their 1978 smash ‘Miss You,’ they got to third base — at least! — with the genre two years later via the controversial ‘Emotional Rescue.’ 

The title track to theband’s first album of the ’80s was a smash hit worldwide, but left many of the their hardcore fans, as well as Stones guitarist Keith Richards, wondering if Mick Jagger was spending too much time at the clubs.

Regardless of how well it fits into the Stone’s typical mode of operation, it’s hard to line up on the side of the haters while its playing. Jagger’s impossibly high falsetto and that irresistibly rubbery bassline easily earn the song it’s place in the band’s history.
