I'm Free

December's Children (And Everybody's)
Side 2, Track 2
"I'm Free" – (Mick Jagger/Keith Richards) 2:23

Man, who didn't want to be the Beatles? And really, there are worse things you could want to be. But to my ears there's nothing weirder than hearing the Stones trying to do this love and peace stuff – there's lots of unconvincing material that the band tried out over the years, but the hippie songs are the least convincing, especially in comparison with their more cynical ("Satisfaction", "Get Off My Cloud") and menacing material ("Midnight Rambler", "Jumping Jack Flash").
