Well, I’m glad they actually made a real video because it actually seems like they’re working. As far as Rock videos go, I think this one is pretty good, especially if you think about that Bjork video I just watched. I think they may have a different take or mix on this version, too. The guitars sound more bitey and I like this a lot more than I did a few weeks ago. Oh, there’s brief boobity in it, so it may not be safe for work.

    You should tell us the timestamp of the boobity so I can be sure to skip that part.

    Also, I hate Jagger the guitar player.

    Noomi Rapace, right?

    Is Watts the last/only drummer to not hit the hi-hat on the 2’s and 4’s ??
    Also, the song ain’t too bad.

  5. Yes.

  6. If it weren’t for the lazy, “Baby woncha dance with me…” line, I’d REALLY like this song.

  7. There’s a band you can’t accuse of getting fat. CGI or are they all that thin still?

    I’m fascintated by Sovinsanity’s question about Charlie’s playing. When did Charlie adopt that only 1 and 3 style on the hi-hat? He didn’t always play that way, but now he seems to only play that way. I imagine it’s a less strenuous style of play and maybe he can only keep up with that approach.

    He does seem to be the only guy in rock that does that exclusively too. Was there a a clear moment when Charlie gave up on 4 beats on the hi-hats?

    It’s better than:

    The moon is yellow
    I’m like Jello
    Staring down your tits

    So it’s not as lazy as you might think.

    I can’t remember if I read it or heard it an interview where Charlie says he skipped the hi-hat on those beats so that the snare drum hit was louder. Yet, I’ve seen other drummers do it.
    Check this kid out, especially when he starts singing to the track

  10. It sounds terrible when he plays the old songs in that style. I really thought it was because he was too old to keep up anymore. That approach doesn’t drive a song like he used to.

  11. YES, that approach kills the old stuff. It’s too bad he can’t mix in some of his old style more often.

    Charlie always talks about his love of jazz, doesn’t he? I was wondering if jazz drummers do that trick. I don’t hear it as I imagine traditional jazz drummers who I imagine Watts grew up digging, but funky fusion drummers seem to break up the snare and hi-hat. I always figured it was just one more way to show off, but maybe they are trying to open space for the recording, as Charlie does. Do reggae drummers do some variation on this trick too? Their beats seem broken up more often than typical rock beats.

  12. I think Charlie stared doing this as far back as the early 70’s. I thought I heard the reason he did this so that he wouldn’t hit his snare drum stick. He changed something about his style where if he didn’t do this, his sticks would collide.

  13. My only comment here is that the first Stone seen riffing on a guitar in a video – ESPECIALLY a telecaster – should absolutely not be Mick Jagger.

    He slipped one past Keith.

    Good lord. Those are actual lyrics. When did R. Kelly start collaborating with them?
