Music Monday

Rolling Stones- Beast of Burden.
Beast of Burden has to be my favorite Rolling Stones song. There is something silly and inviting about the song.
The song can be seen as allegorical, with Richards saying in 2003, "When I returned to the fold after closing down the laboratory [referring to his drug problems throughout the 1970s], I came back into the studio with Mick... to say, 'Thanks, man, for shouldering the burden' - that's why I wrote "Beast of Burden" for him, I realise in retrospect."
