Exile on Main St.
Side Three, Track One
"Happy" – 4:23

[Save link]

Keith steps out into the spotlight here, due probably to Mick's missingness at the "studio" in France. I'll probably have to make a separate post just to discuss the shenanigans at Nellcote, so look for that. "Happy" is another one of those songs that nobody seems to like except me. It is a total mess, mix-wise, even worse than most of this album, but Keith's rhythm guitar is always right out there in front, and that is enough to get a pass from me.

I'm with you on this one Nanker - It's never lost it's 'first time I heard it' buzz for me- it's also one of Mrs M's fave Stones tunes

Ahhh just tripped over this link from old Mondo's blog so I thought I'd check it out. Thought it was a gag at first, a play on words, but nope! This is some serious dedication to one of the greatest bands in the World. I take my hat off to you fella for wanting to undertake such a thing. I shall be readoing this blog from start to finish when I get time. A worthy cause if ever there was one. Do you like other bands too?

Holy shit, it's been a month! I really have to get back to this. This week, I promise: the rest of the greatest album ever, proceeding to the inevitable 35-year decline.
