Ruby Tuesday

I love the Rolling Stones. But my favorite song is "Ruby Tuesday." Mick Jagger had nothing to do with the song. Keith Richards and Brian Jones wrote "Ruby Tuesday." They later brought Mick into the studio and taught him the song. What makes me laugh about them -- Mick can't hit the low note in the first lyric: "She would never say where she came from." But he forces it anyway. He is a true showman who has conjured up a lot of tricks over the years. Like when he lost his voice on Saturday Night Live some 40 years ago. He got down in front of the first aisle and mouthed the words in an exaggerated way. He always comes up with something.
