The Stones were always trying to imitate the Beatles. Mick and Keith knew the Beatles recorded an unreleased song called Let It Be. Hence, Let It Bleed.

Is it just me or does the piano in the beginning sound exactly like another band's song? Possibly a qsms song?

Always thought this song was way better than a lot of the Stones songs that got more radio time. Still sounds fresh all these years later. I've been bit and I've been tossed around by every she-rat in this town... Classic blues lyric

The best Stones song of them all. Love to play the blues. Monkey Woman.

One of the many hidden gems in the Stones huge catalog.

One of the truly great Stones tunes - highly under-rated in its excellence.

There are Stones songs like this one and Parachute Woman, Memo From Turner, 2,000 Light Years From Home, Dead Flowers, that some people have never heard that stirred my cup in the seventies; they don't get old man.

Reminds me of that classic scene in Goodfellas with the helicopter!

Depending on my mood, when I hear this song I think of one of two things: its appearance in "Goodfellas, " or else the time during a work campout a co-worker started dancing around the campfire to this song playing on a beat-up little tape cassette boombox in the woods.
