No. 83: ‘Shake Your Hips’ – Top 100 Rolling Stones Songs
Just because this one is a cover doesn't mean we can't love it tenderly! Even the Rolling Stones had idols, mentors and rock star heroes that they were in awe of. And such a scenario can be be noticed in their rambunctious, rhythmic cover of American bluesman Slim Harpo's song 'Shake Your Hips.'
The track was originally written in 1966 but appeared on side one of the band's 1972 smash album 'Exile on Main St.' The song is a tribute through and through, and sounds similar to the original, however with that added touch of rock 'n roll that only the Mick, Keith, Charlie and the boys can offer!
