No. 67: ‘Undercover Of The Night’ – Top 100 Rolling Stones Songs

The Rolling Stones‘ 1983 single ‘Undercover of the Night’ heralded a very different and controversial sound for the world’s most famous rock and roll band.

Employing an odd mix of early ’80s electronic textures including keyboards, electronic drums and more, Mick Jagger and company strutted confidently into the future (well, now the somewhat regrettable past) with a compelling mix of disco and funk. Luckily, at the end of the day, the song sounded very much like the Stones.

Jagger’s vocals are especially urgent throughout the song, as if his very survival hinged on a good vocal take. Of course, like the rest of their catalog, it is the sum of the Stones parts that makes the jagged ‘Undercover of the Night’ something special.
