Album: Sticky Fingers
. . .
Like “Brown Sugar” and “Sway,” “Moonlight Mile” was written completely by Mick Jagger, but unlike those two, Keith Richards is nowhere to be found on the recording, which I think is the first time that had ever happened.
In any event, “Moonlight Mile” is an utterly sweeping and affecting “life on the road” song, which is one of the most crowded genres, to be sure, but it totally transcends just about every other song ever recorded in that genre.
