Continental Drift

Album: Steel Wheels (1989)
  • Love comes at the speed of light
    Love comes at the speed of light
    Love comes in a strange disguise
    Love comes

    Open the door and let the light pour over
    Open the door don't you keep me out
    Open the door and let the light pour over
    Hear me shout

    Open the door and let the light pour over
    Open the door don't you keep me out
    Open the door and let the light pour over
    Hear me shout

    Love comes at the speed of light
    Love comes

    It's a pure as silver
    It's as pure as gold
    It's a rushing river
    Let it run all over me

    It's as pure as silver
    It's as pure as gold
    Let it run all over me

    Love comes
    Love comes at the speed of light
    Love comes at the speed of light Writer/s: Keith Richards, Mick Jagger
    Publisher: BMG Rights Management

  • Bachir Attar from MoroccoHere we see that there is credit above but the other postings on tube have no credit to the Master Musicians of Jajouka.This is sad sad sad.Why? We are poor musicians who have struggled hard and this credit should be given.
  • Billy from Birmingham, EnglandIn the opening video, there is a small snippet of IORAR to be heard when the tongue appears on the screen.
  • Bill from Erie, PaThis has been their entrance for every concert on every tour since Steel Wheels, I think. On their current (Bigger Bang) tour, "Drift" was played over a montage of little particles assembling to form the faces of Mick, then Keith, then Charlie, then Ronnie. After Ronnie's face faded from the giant screen, the stage was lit up by fireworks and they started playing. At the concerts I went to, they started with "Start Me Up" twice and "Brown Sugar" once.
  • Johnny from Los Angeles, CaThe Stones are in the Jungle!!!!!
  • Johnny from Los Angeles, CaStrange. Good entrance, though. I wonder what other songs a bicycle is used in?
  • Frank from Pittsburgh, Pawas the entrance music on the 'steel wheels' tour
  • Chelsea from Nyc, OrThe song began while Mick and Keith were sequestered away, writing material for Steel Wheels. Keith woke up one morning to find Jagger playing the repetitive Keyboard loop on a little keyboard.
