No. 56: ‘When The Whip Comes Down’ – Top 100 Rolling Stones Songs

If there was any questions as to the continued relevance or authenticity to the Rolling Stones in the late ’70s, they were most likely erased with this scorching track from ‘Some Girls.’

‘When The Whip Comes Down’ illustrates the very essence of the Stones: a catchy chorus and a simple guitar riff, backed by Charlie Watts’ solid backbeat and a simple refrain featuring only the song’s title in the chorus. Mick Jagger‘s vocals sound as though they are somewhat buried in the mix at times, however this does nothing to impede the overall impact of the song.
