I know what you’re thinking . . . The first Music Monday featuring The Rolling Stones and you pick the Steel Wheels album? Yes, I know it’s not their most iconic or their best work. However, this was one of my first introductions to the band (I was 9 when it was released). I owned the tape (you heard me) and played it quite often. I re-listened to these songs the other day, and they actually hold up well.
Even if you aren’t a big Stones fan, just watch the Mixed Emotions video on mute. Mick Jagger moving around in leotards is pretty hilarious. Between this video and the Start Me Up video, I was able to pull off a pretty good Jagger impersonation as a kid.
