Something Better (Marianne Faithfull) Lyrics - The Rolling Stones

Review The Song (1)



He walks along singing his fairy song
Picking up magic that grows at his feet.
She says the same her peculiar way
Dreaming good fortune on everyone's street.

Say, hey, have you heard, blue whiskey's the rage,
I'll send you a jug in the morning.
It is absurd to live in a cage,
You know there's got to be something better.

As they go by, don't look with eagle's eyes
Smile on your jailers until they grow weak.
Nothing can compare to something that's almost there
The cherry plum madness that all of us seek.

Say, hey, have you heard, blue whiskey's the rage,
I'll send you a jug in the morning.
It is absurd to live in a cage,
You know there's got to be something better.

Something better? | Reviewer: ctuozzo | 5/4/2006

Knowing your own limits seldom does not pay off. When you know what you can do, ergo, you know what you cannot do. This song in the version of the RSCircus is great because the song is great, and MF makes the best of it with her limited volume but with her singing with an attitude than someone has adequately qualified as "velvet." Or fur if one takes into account the Redlands frame up. You don´t kave to be Aretha or la Callas, it is enough to have the knowledge of what songs is and was yours from the beginning. Keith is a great example with some of his low, bluey, songs that have been equivocally qualifed as ballads.
To sum up: It is more than worth hearing, MF´s version with the Stones´music arrangement is a must-pleasure! (Including Charlie Watts´introduction in a voice that either trembles of desire or lacked the most faithful sound equipment--it is a real possibility.
