    From the mid-90s, the video features Jagger as a giant walking through a city, I think New York, and I think in black and white. But I can't remember.

    Anybody?

    No, that was a great song, but not the one I'm tlaking about.

    I'm sure about the mid-90s thing, and I'm sure about him being a giant...

    You're the man John, thanks. I remembered I loved the harmonica lick, but I couldn't remember the song...

    I don't think that's it. How 'bout ...

    Baby ... baby, Ive been so sad since youve been gone
    Way back to New York City

    Legs wrapped around me tight
    If I ever get back to fun city, girl
    I'm gonna make you scream all night

    Honey ... honey, call me on the telephone
    I know you're movin' out to Hollywood
    With your can of tasty foam
    All those beat up friends of mine
    Got to get you in their books
    And lead guitars and movie stars
    Get their tongues beneath your hood

    Yeah! You're a star fucker, star fucker, star fucker, star fucker, star

    Yeah, I heard about your polaroids
    That's what I call obscene
    Your tricks with fruit was kind a cute
    I bet you keep your pussy clean
    Honey, I miss your two tone kisses
    Legs wrapped around me tight
    If I ever get back to New York, girl
    Gonna make you scream all night

    Yeah! You're a star fucker, star fucker, star fucker, star fucker, star

    For givin' head to Steve McQueen
    You and me we'd make a pretty pair
    Ballin' through the silver screen
    Honey, I'm open to anything
    I don't know where to draw the line
    Yeah, I'll make bets that youre gonna get
    John Wayne before he dies

    I'm driving my daughter to school today when "Ruby Tuesday" comes on the radio.

    "Dad, why is this guy singing goodbye to a restaurant?"

    For me "Dandelion" would be right up there with "She's A Rainbow" for Stones' songs you wish you heard more. Runaway leader here is "Sway".

    All of my friends from school grew up and settled down,
    And they mortgaged off their lives.
    One thing's not said too often, but I think it's true;
    They just get married 'cause there's nothing else to do.

    Sway, yes. Absolutely, yes.

    A great forgotten Stones song: "High Wire". I believe it was just a throw in on the Flashpoint live CD, but that may be their best song of the last twenty years.

    And for lyrics, I'll toss in these as a bookend to Bubbler's Star, Star post:

    Some girls give me money
    Some girls buy me clothes
    Some girls give me jewelry
    That I never thought Id own

    Some girls give me diamonds
    Some girls, heart attacks
    Some girls I give all my bread to
    I dont ever want it back

    Some girls give me jewelry
    Others buy me clothes
    Some girls give me children
    I never asked them for

    So give me all your money
    Give me all your gold
    Ill buy you a house back in zuma beach
    And give you half of what I own

    Some girls take my money
    Some girls take my clothes
    Some girls get the shirt off my back
    And leave me with a lethal dose

    French girls they want cartier
    Italian girls want cars
    American girls want everything in the world
    You can possibly imagine

    English girls theyre so prissy
    I cant stand them on the telephone
    Sometimes I take the receiver off the hook
    I dont want them to ever call at all

    White girls theyre pretty funny
    Sometimes they drive me mad
    Black girls just wanna get fucked all night
    I just dont have that much jam

    Chinese girls are so gentle
    Theyre really such a tease
    You never know quite what theyre cookin
    Inside those silky sleeves

    Give me all you money
    Give me all your gold
    Ill buy you a house back in zuma beach
    And give you half of what I own

    Some girls theyre so pure
    Some girls so corrupt
    Some girls give me children
    I only made love to her once

    Give me half your money
    Give me half your car
    Give me half of everything
    Ill make you worlds biggest star

    So gimme all your money
    Give me all your gold
    Lets go back to zuma beach
    Ill give you half of everything I own
