Song of the day is a daily feature highlighting a specific track that might be bad ass, corny, mellow, or poppy. As long as it stands out for some reason it’s fair game.
The Rolling Stones – “Respectable”
By the mid 1970s the Rolling Stones were some of the biggest stars in the world. Mick was gallivanting around the world with David Bowie and Keef was a full blown drug addict. Some Girls was and is seen as one of their last great albums, and it was probably a wonder they were able to put it together at all. “Respectable” is proof that the Stones were taking the influences happening around them (punk, disco) and transforming those sounds into their own material.
