Night Music: The Rolling Stones, “Gimme Shelter”

This may be the most iconic Stones song. But in a recent concert in Newark they invited Lady Gaga to join in.

I like Lady Gaga as an artist. Her songs and performances are often powerful.

And I think she sings great in this clip. But she isn’t Merry Clayton and these Stones aren’t those Stones. All things considered, Lady Gaga is a plus. And so was Taylor Swift.


(Morning Music: Reading this in the light of day, I realize I didn’t make my point. What I said I meant, but what I didn’t say (except by using the Bad Music category) I also meant. This is terrible.)
