A “Sound Matter Moment”
This moody Stones tune has a great arrangement, complex musicianship, and an overall feel that’s both haunting, yet inspiring at the same time. It’s a brilliant piece with exceptional guitar work by the vastly underrated mid-period Stone, Mick Taylor. I’ve heard it called “the best Stones song nobody ever talks about.”
Arguably better than the music, is the tune’s bittersweet message. Time’s a vapor; it moves quickly. We have to move with it because it won’t wait. It’s called change. Time is everyone’s most valuable commodity that cannot be recovered once spent.
“Time can tear down a building or destroy a woman’s face | Hours are like diamonds, don’t let them waste” ~ Rolling Stones
