Total eclipse of the, uh…moon?

The Rolling Stones – “Moonlight Mile” from Sticky Fingers (1971)

To commemorate tonight’s total lunar eclipse, we offer this Stone-cold classic from Mick, Keith, & Co.’s best record. Enjoy it outside, in a lawn chair, with a beer, as you bask in the blood-red moon. That’s my plan, anyway.

Like anyone here doesn’t already own all the Rolling Stones records

  1. I stayed outside for about 20 seconds at a time to check it out. I wasn’t about to sit outside when its 11 degrees out there. We don’t all live in a paradise like North Carolina.

    Yeah, I kinda forgot about that. NC is truly a temperate paradise (also suffering from a drought and constant forest-fire advisories).

    300 clear nights a year in Tucson and this wasn’t one of them. Crap.

    On the other hand, this song is wonderful. One of the best last tracks of all time. Bravo. And I agree that it’s the best Stones album.

    I don’t think Keith is even on this track- isn’t Gram Parsons playing?

    Keith doesn’t play on this one but, as always, he has a writing credit. Apparently Mick played the Japanese-sounding guitar part written by Keith. And as far as I know, GP wasn’t in on this one.
