  • Alastair from Stranraer, United KingdomOne of the Stones superior late-era ballads. The added storm and rain effects on the video soundtrack, help to enhance the melancholic mood of the song.
  • Jonathan from Tampa Bay, FlThe performance of the song doesn't do the lyric justice. No offense to the Stones, but this isn't simply sadness. It's defiance through the fact the singer is hurting but he won't let the object that hurts him keep him down. "I'm a whisper / I'm a shadow / but I'm standing up to sing" -- he's been beaten down but life goes on. There are some beautiful lyrics, but the arrangement and pace of the song weighs it down immensely.
  • Ethan from Portland, Orworst song on Voodoo Lounge
  • Homero from Monterrey , MexicoThis is a song we haven t aprecciated at all. Let s hear the guitars and the piano. Its a beautiful song.
  • Charlie from Thomaston, Cti was sure that this song was a classic from the 70's the first couple of times i heard it
