It's a quite, calm, early Saturday morning (a little over cast) and Moonlight Mile just came on the CD player (I forgot it was on this CD). I started getting the chills. It is definitely one of my favorite songs of all time. Some times some songs just hit you and this is one for me.

Enjoy your weekend everyone. May all be well with you, your friends, and loved ones.

"Moonlight Mile" is probably my favorite Stones song of all time...It definitely has that chill effect. In fact, I always thought that would be a GREAT song for The Brother's to cover. The lyrics would be just perfect for Gregg to sing, sort of autbiographical for him...and Derek on silde, wow....

I wish I didn't lose my copy of "Sticky Fingers" or I would listen to it right now...


MOONLIGHT MILE
(M. Jagger/K. Richards)

When the wind blows and the rain feels cold
With a head full of snow
With a head full of snow
In the window there's a face you know
Don't the night pass slow
Don't the nights pass slow

The sound of strangers sending nothing to my mind
Just another mad mad day on the road
I am just living to be lying by your side
But I'm just about a moonlight mile on down the road

Made a rag pile of my shiny clothes
Gonna warm my bones
Gonna warm my bones
I got silence on my radio
Let the air waves flow
Let the air waves flow

Oh I'm sleeping under strange strange skies
Just another mad mad day on the road
My dreams is fading down the railway line
I'm just about a moonlight mile on down the road
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah

I'm hiding sister and I'm dreaming
I'm riding down your moonlight mile
I'm hiding baby and I'm dreaming
I'm riding down your moonlight mile
I'm riding down you moonlight mile

Let it go now, come on up babe
Yeah, let it go now
Yeah, flow now baby
Yeah move on now yeah

Yeah, I'm coming home
'Cause, I'm just about a moonlight mile on down the road
Down the road, down the road
Yeah, yeah, hey hey hey baby, now

The build-up to the climax of this song is just staggering.
ON down the road! Uh down the road! Down the road!

The amazing thing about Sticky FIngers is that it still has great songs that you rarely hear on the radio! For all the airplay that Brown Sugar and Wild Horses get, "Sway" and "Moonlight Mile" and "Sister Morphine" get none. The advantage, I guess, is that I have not gotten sick of the underplayed songs.

Odd note - don't know if any of you like Matthew Sweet, but the last song on his 100% Fun album, a song called "Fog Moon," is definitely his Moonlight Mile. I get goosembumps every time.

Sticky Fingers!!! To me this is one of those rare albums that is just perfect. And Moonlight Mile is beautiful - very dreamy song and appropriate for a multitude of circumstances (cruising down the highway on a sunny day, sitting outside with the wind blowing through your hair and the birds singing, and a few that I can't mention here )
