Oh, a storm is threat’ning

The Rolling Stones Gimme Shelter Live Pop Go The Sixites 1969

My very life today…

If I don’t get some shelter
Oh yeah, I’m gonna fade away

Not for the first time it’s being used for an telly advert at the mo, can’t remember for what, film makers like to use it, step forward Mr Scorsese, “Gimme Shelter” is probably the best Rolling Stones track ever and one of my favourite tracks of all time.

Keef’s intro playing with that little bend lick just before Mick starts up is just perfect.

War, children, it’s just a shot away
It’s just a shot away
It’s just a shot away
It’s just a shot away
It’s just a shot away
I tell you love, sister, it’s just a kiss away
It’s just a kiss away
It’s just a kiss away
It’s just a kiss away
It’s just a kiss away
Kiss away, kiss away
