  • Lyrics
  • The second single from the Undercover album, "She Was Hot" finds Mick Jagger singing about romantic encounters in New York, Detroit and Chicago. He called it an "on-the-road song," saying at the time of release: "I hate road songs normally but that's your experience so you draw on it."
  • The racy video featured a redheaded dancer who got the band so excited the zippers flew open on their pants. MTV would not air it, so The Stones supplied an alternate version without the crotch-popping.
  • Video was shot in Mexico City. The actress who starred in it was Anita Morris. She was also in the movieRuthless People (Mick sang the movie's title song). Sadly, she has passed away from cancer. >>

  • Chuck Leavell, formerly of the Allman Brothers Band, played keyboards along with Ian Stewart.
  • The B-side to the single is "I Think I'm Going Mad," an outtake from the Emotional Rescue sessions.

  • Guy from Benson, NcDuran Duran has NO talent? You're crazy. Yeah, they are a pop band, but darn good musicians.
  • Craig from Melbourne, AustraliaSee the bendy rubber guitar Ronnie uses in the clip? He gave it to one of the guys from Duran Duran. Members of that "new wave" band visited the Stones recording sessions. The band were stunned that the Stones played together in the studio. Duran Duran, having no talent, were more or less an 80's version of The Monkees. Why Ronnie befriended them, i do not know.
  • Ethan from Portland, Orgreat song, one of the best that the Stones have never played in concert. BUST IT OUT!
  • Jim from Oxnard, CaI saw the video the other day and there was a LOT of innuendo (Keith's cigarrette disintegrating, etc.) and with the way MTV is going these days, I can't see why they didn't play this video in its original version. Heck, if they played Fountains of Wayne's "Stacy's Mom," "She Was Hot" is way tamer.
  • Dave from London , CanadaOne of the dumber Stones songs.
  • Mark from Akron, OhActually the red head was the late actress Anita Morriss. She was also in the
    movie "Ruthless People". Mick sang the movie's title track "Ruthless People". Sadly Anita passed away of Cancer.
  • Sasha from Manhattan, NyI have read that the redheaded dancer in the video is Patti Hansen. Keith Richard's long time girlfriend.
