“Rocks Off”- Live

Exile on Main St

Live Licks

I hear you talking when I’m on the street,
Your mouth don’t move but I can hear you speak.
What’s the matter with the boy?
He don’t come around no more,
Is he checking out for sure?
Is he gonna close the door on me?

I’m always hearing voices on the street,
I want to shout, but I can’t hardly speak.
I was making love last night
To a dancer friend of mine.
I can’t seem to stay in step,
‘Cause she come ev’ry time that she pirouettes over me.

And I only get my rocks off while I’m dreaming,
I only get my rocks off while I’m sleeping.

I’m zipping through the days at lightning speed.
Plug in, flush out and fire the fuckin’ feed.
Heading for the overload,
Splattered on the dirty road,
Kick me like you’ve kicked before,

    I wore my phonograph needle out in 1972 listening to "Rock's Off" & "Rip This Joint". Unfortunately for some reason the live version never sounds great. Jagger, for some reason, always sings it in the wrong key. And it sounds like shit!!!

    Feel so hypnotized, can't describe the scene.
    Its all mesmerized, all that inside me.
    The sunshine bores the daylights out of me.
    Chasing shadows moonlight mystery.
    Headed for the overload,
    Splattered on the dirty road,

  18. Music Above Clouds. says:

    Instrumental and Brass is superlative, Mick Jagger's T-shirt great. Keep Rocking!

  19. Javier Bautista says:

    This masterpiece should be mandatory played in every single one of their live shows.

  20. sean brennan says:

    To be honest, it sounds kind of empty without Mick Taylor

  21. Flavio Aguiari says:

    Forever in history…The Rolling Stones.

    exile ? Pressure makes dymondz

  23. dannyd1572 says:

    The whole feeling of this song is lost live. It's almost like the Stones try to make all their numbers sound like "pop music". I became addicted in 1980. Let's Spend The Night Together (movie) was like a video bible to this 8 year old. That's the last time the band sounded good in concert. No horns..background singers…etc. Just rock and roll. I hate this pop stuff. The bitch of it is that, you know what? They will tour again and ask $300 for decent seats….and I'll pay it. Damn Stones! I love you.
