Under My Thumb

Aftermath (USA version)
Side 1, Track 4
"Under My Thumb" – 3:41

I'm sensing a theme on this album. The misogyny of "Under My Thumb" is certainly uglier than "Stupid Girl", but at least the band had a go at making some interesting music. It's been a long time since I heard this track, but I remembered the marimba clearly – I had forgotten about the fuzz bass (played by Keith?) which sounds great on this song. Some clever chord changes as well. A memorable track.
