Album: Some Girls
. . .
As I mentioned before, Some Girls is such an embarrassment of riches that I very easily could have found something to write about two more songs that I’m almost missing: Keith’s poignant acknowledgement of his fucked-up-ness, “Before They Make Me Run” and his acknowledgement that Mick had been running the show, “Beast of Burden,” which followed “Miss You” into the top ten.
But, of course, as iconic as those two songs are, I would argue that they aren’t nearly as iconic as the final song on Some Girls, the immortal “Shattered,” which takes one last hilarious look at New York City.
