No. 64: ‘One Hit to the Body’ – Top 100 Rolling Stones Songs
The ’80s were not kind to many of the old guard. Most ’60s holdovers were found floundering in search of themselves. Accordingly, ‘Dirty Work’ is not exactly the Rolling Stones‘ finest hour.
Aside from their cover of ‘Harlem Shuffle,’ ‘One Hit To The Body’ is all the record is remembered for. Even then, it’s a classic case of a good song getting trapped under the era’s high-gloss production style. Still, you can hear the band trying to make it happen. Had this song been recorded five years earlier, it would be a very different animal, but it still earns a respectable spot on our Top 100 Rolling Stones Songs list.
