I love The Stones, make no mistake, they never disappoint. And I realize sometimes after singing a hit song for a few decades, hundreds of times a year, singers tend to blend in the words, making it crucial listening to figure out what they’re really saying. In Mick Jagger’s case performing Jumping Jack Flash in Paris from 1976, he’s still being the greatest frontman in history, while delivering an emotional substance, showing that just sometimes it’s not the words that are important, but the sounds.
