  • Bellestarr from California It's a real the original video for this song has been blocked for copyright reasons. Mick's emotional performance in the video is priceless. Why the copyright holder blocks the video so it can't be seen is beyond me and its an artistic shame.
  • Richard from New Windsor, NyThis song hits you in the heart. My interpretation of this song, is a man caught the love of his life cheating on him unexpectedly thinking everything in the relationship was fine. The video to this song is awesome. All of the Stones seem to act out the feeling of this song. Mick seems shocked and sad, Keith appears to be thinking and feeling sad with his guitar, Ronnie looks shocked, Charlie looks like he is just a little down but going about his business. Just Incredible.
  • Michael from Costa Mesa, CaThis is one of the best songs on the "Steel Wheels" album..the other two gret songs are "Rock and a Hard Place" and "Mixed Emotions"
  • Johnny from Los Angeles, CaAmazing song. And I have never heard it before now (I love rolling stones radio). That's the thing about the stones, they just keep on producing material.
  • Ethan from Portland, OrBeautiful song; I wish they would play it on the ABB tour. Not gonna happen, though.
  • Rory from Victoria, CanadaI'm really conflicted about this song, sometimes I love it sometimes I hate it. But maybe that's how it is meant to be.
  • Chris from Chicago, IlJagger changed Keith's lyric "feel your lips on mine" to "feel your tounge on mine".
  • Susan from Mk, EnglandThis song is beautiful, it always makes me cry and remember my childhood sweetheart..
  • Chelsea from Nyc, OrKeith does a great "classical" style guitar break on Accoustic.
