No. 86: ‘Let it Loose’ – Top 100 Rolling Stones Songs

Exile on Main Street
Universal

When we think of ‘Exile on Main Street,’ we think of the stoned-out, decadent, late-night vibe at Nellcote, the villa in the south of France where primary work on the famous Rolling Stones album was recorded. No song on ‘Exile’ captures that better than ‘Let it Loose.’

Built around a restless guitar part, ‘Let it Loose’ captures everything the Stones had learned from the soul and gospel records they loved, with horns and a six-piece choir providing background vocals. But the real star is Mick Jagger, who delivers one of his all-time greatest vocal performances, not just in the emotional coda but also the way he holds back when necessary.
