Thing is, how many people (not necessarily in here) who throw that word around can actually say what "neo-con" means? Another question-How long has it been since the Stones wrote a song that was hummable (is that a word?)

I think that was probably "Blinded By Rainbows."

As for this song, I could care less really. Though, I usually don't like lyrics that are so direct and time-specific. But, as it was said earlier, if it has a good tune, I'll consider liking it.

Lots of opinions...I'm glad we're taking about this as I wish there was more talk about what is happeningingin politics...and I don't mean the kind of talk on FOX Smooze. That's arguing. We learn from listening to others share facts and ideas and opinions.

The real question is what can these seniors actually teach us.

Well they can teach us a lot about drugs. And Keef plays a mean guitar.

But on politics, feck all!

As I said, Jagger isn't a 'protest' singer, and 62 is a bit late to start to be one, IMO.

What protest songs did you like? I liked "For What It's Worth", "Long Time Gone", "Ohio."

Buffalo Springfield. CSNY!

That's the real reason. Nice marketing move.

The Stones have some political songs, such as Street Fighting Man and Gimme Shleter, so its not like they're starting to write these kinds of songs now

Agreed. Also, they have always spoke their mind....ok, sometimes they were out of their minds..lol, IMO this isn't just an advertising stunt. It doesn't sound like Keith is so happy it made the media.

Look, I am just happy when a person with a loud voice speaks up for things I feel strongly about. Would I feel differently if I didn't agree? In all honesty, perhaps.

Hmm, I think Rono was trying to say that we shouldn't just assume the motives of the Stones are to simply stur up controversy and sell albums when we know that other artists like U2 address politics because they are sincere. U2's integrity (I think) was not being called into question.
