Song of The Day #168

"Citadel" by The Rolling Stones

So we all know kids these days (like yours truly) don't appreciate the past, which is to say most of us hate the goddamn Rolling Stones. I'm not a big fan of theirs, but the fact of the matter is they actually did make some pretty great music--and much of it is found on their batshit crazy Their Satanic Majesties Request. Sgt. Pepper's (better, yes better) bastard child, Request is my favorite Stones album and "Citadel" is one of its finest songs. It proves that the Stones were (and are) true artists and innovators, not just rock n' roll/blues copycats. Listening to this song and album make me care slightly more that there's a new Keith Richards book out there...
