The Rewind Button- Exile on Main Street

I know its Wensday, but I was antsy to get this out there.

I will admit, I am not a huge fan of the Rolling Stones. I mean I like them but I wouldnt fly across the country to go see them. I just checked and apart from Exile on Main Street which I downloaded for this blog and the Glee version of ‘You Cant Always Get What You Want’, I dont have any other Stones songs. And after listening to Exile, im fairly certain its gonna stay that way.

I dont know, something about them makes me not want to listen to them. I respect them as musicians but I constantly find myself disapointed in them, they dont pull me in and keep me. Thats just me.

I did however LOVE the song ‘Sweet Virginia’ it was the only one that I listened to more then once, lryically its beautifully simple and pure I mean look:

Wadin’ through the waste stormy winter,
And there’s not a friend to help you through.
Tryin’ to stop the waves behind your eyeballs,
Drop your reds, drop your greens and blues.

Thank you for your wine, California,
Thank you for your sweet and bitter fruits.
Yes I got the desert in my toenail
And I hid the speed inside my shoe.

But come on, come on down Sweet Virginia,
Come on, honey child, I beg of you.
Come on, come on down, you got it in ya.
Got to scrape the shit right off you shoes.

I want you to come on, come on down Sweet Virginia,
I want you come on, honey child, I beg of you. .
I want you come on, honey child you got it in you.
Got to scrape that shit right off you shoes.

But come on, come on down Sweet Virginia,
Come on, come on down, I beg of you.
Come on, come on down, you got it in you.
Got to scrape that shit right off you shoes. “

I love it.

makes me me want someone to want me to come home and scrape the shit off my shoes.
