No. 99: ‘Heaven’ – Top 100 Rolling Stones Songs

Rolling Stones Tattoo You

This dreamy, borderline psychedelic song is one of many highlights from the “ballad” side of the Rolling Stones‘ 1981 album ‘Tattoo You.’

‘Tattoo You’ was primarily constructed out of songs rejected from previous albums, as the band was reportedly in a big hurry to make a record to support on an upcoming world tour.

But there’s nothing tossed off or rushed about this song. Over a lush bed of echoing guitars, Mick Jagger promises to protect the object of his affections with a repeated, whispered refrain: “Nothing will harm you / No one will stand in your way.”
