No. 94: ‘Take it So Hard’ – Top 100 Rolling Stones Songs

Keith Richards Talk Is Cheap
Virgin

After a decade that found the Rolling Stones mostly chasing rather than setting trends, and then splintering in an nasty public war of words between Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, the latter re-connected with the group’s original spirit all by himself with the 1988 single ‘Take It So Hard.’

Three years after Jagger raised the guitarist’s ire by issuing his first solo album, and then forgoing a Stones tour in favor of recording yet another one, Richards issued the aptly-named ‘Talk is Cheap,’ an album full of spare, charmingly ramshackle guitar-driven songs.

This particular track offered hope to fans wishing for a reunion in its lyrics, which seem to advise a lover (or lead singer) not to let some fighting end a good thing.
