Album: Sticky Fingers
. . .
“Sway” is probably my favorite Rolling Stones song.
Which is funny, because — as you’ve probably figured out by now — I’m a lifelong Keith Richards stan, and he doesn’t really have much to do with “Sway,” which was written by Mick Jagger and (an uncredited) Mick Taylor. Because it sits between a pair of heavyweights, the scurrilous “Brown Sugar” and the gorgeous “Wild Horses,” I think that it gets overlooked — I mean, as much as any song on fucking Sticky Fingers can be overlooked — when people talk about the record.
