I like it. It's ludicrous, but it has something. Prince liked it enough to cover it.

Defo, yea, if only to provide a counterpoint to the action in the substream at the time (e.g. post-punk), an illustration of how the relics were coping by copying (with this, particularly well) and better then the self-unaware 'It's only rock n roll' 4 years previously, that's cartoonish and arguably the start of the Jagger-bot becoming caricature.

Concur with Goat Boy and 'Emotional Rescue', plus I've also got spots for 'Waiting on a friend', 'She was hot' and She's so cold'

I absolutely love the shit out of the track "Emotional Rescue", as it happens.

Me too. I regret that their disco period really amounts to only two or three songs.

I would kill to be able to sing falsetto and not sound like one of the Pythons in drag.

I have come to really like the jet-setting disco Stones. It's gross and wrong and everything about it screams desperation. but I love it. Up to Undercover at least. After that, fucking useless.

I voted meh, mostly 'cause it's a combination of great elements and annoying ones. When he prattles on about the Puerto Rican girls dying to meet you, he just sounds like such a prat. But it's a pretty irrepressible groove, and reminds one that Bill Wyman was quite a groove monster too - not just Charlie.

I like "Beast of Burden" a whole lot more, though, and for similar reasons.

I love it. There’s a bit during the sax solo that's like a ripple in the space/time continuum, but it might just be a dodgy tape edit.

I love Emotional Rescue too. Especially the pianos.

Mick had acquired such hard-won emotional depth by that stage.

I agree, but, his jerky gurning routine is hilarious, he created Stella Street immediately with his histrionics. Which is no bad thing, mind

I remember exactly the first time I heard it. I was at a college pal's BBQ party and thought it was a piece of sell out shit. It's grown on me over the years and I kind of love it.

I find it amazing that anyone projected those kind of values on The Stones by the mid to late 70s, though I'm sure many did.

We'd all grown weary of the tzt tzt tzt high hat disco beat. It was as obnoxious to my ears as the techno/dance thump thump thump is today.

But then if you look at what a certain kind of disco became: a sleazy, very hedonistic adaptation of black r n' b reducing it into a highly produced party formula, then what better band than The Stones to take it on. In a sense it had been what they'd been doing their whole career.

In much the same way as DeBurgh assimilated the yearning vocal qualities of black soul singers such as James Carr in his hit song 'The Lady in Red', yes.

You see - everything's up for grabs. And everything is cool
