Rolling Stones "Sweet Neo Con"

Being a Stone fan from way back....if the Stones release a decent album, I always buy it. Same for the upcoming release.

Now with all the controversy with this new song hitting hard at the Neo-conservatives, I can tell you I only plan on buying it if the Stones LEAVE IT IN!

"You call yourself a Christian, I call you a hypocrite. You call yourself a patriot.
Well, I think you're full of shit!
How come you're so wrong, my sweet neo-con."

Aopalling lyrics....Mick Jagger is not a protest singer.......65 is a bit late to start getting interested in politics.

Having said that it is pissing off the Freepers which is mildly amusing....

And making the headlines, of course.

Sixty-two years and nineteen days to be precise.

I'm all for sticking it to the neo-cons, but those lyrics are about as subtle as a sledgehammer! Oh, well, I guess the Stones never were exactly about subtlety.

There's a first time for everything. I think it's interesting that they're doing this.

All I care about...is it a good tune to go with the lyrics?

Bad lyrics - on par with McCartney's appalling "Freedom".

I will agree, anitram, that McCartney song is awful.

It's never too late to become politically inolved. Good for Mick!

And a good tune would keep people humming, but in this case, the words will be the hook!

What I find hi-larious is that the most cited neocons are not Christians at all

This is vintage Stones: saying something mean, dark, and true that everyone wishes they had the balls to say.

Nice one, Mick!

I'm sure Mick Jagger would have no problem w/ some 25 year old hot female neo-con. Or maybe 25 is too old for him

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.
