Some Girls > Wiki


A fresh, uncompromising attempt to incorporate 1978 pop techniques into the band's familiar sound,Some Girlsopens with the disco sass of "Miss You" and closes with the self-destructive punk of "Shattered." (Both songs, especially "Miss You," with its distinctive Mel Collins sax solo, remain live showstoppers.) So the Stones declared credibility in the dance circuit without sacrificing their hard-rock reputation. Though the anti-love "Beast of Burden" and the stylishly slow "Just My Imagination (Running Away with Me)" continue to rack up the most airplay, the obscurities stand up surprisingly well. Worth replaying: Keith Richards's rickety rocker "Before They Make Me Run."--Steve Knopper

This record is extremely overrated. First of all, at least five songs are written in the same key and have similar rhythms. Second, the singles Miss You and Beast Of Burden are cheesy pop/disco oriented songs that are overly repetitive that are not appropriate for the Stones style. Respectable, Before They Make Me Run, and the Title Track are good songs and Far Away Eyes is OK but the rest of the material is just dissapointing.
