Radio 58, side A, track 9: “Almost Hear You Sigh” by The Rolling Stones

Rolling Stones - Almost Hear You SighOh, The Rolling Stones, so this isn’t actually you guys, right?  I mean, this song is downright melancholy, and melancholy is never a word one would use to describe y’all.  I’m not an expert on your music, The Rolling Stones, but this one seems like it’s very much a departure from your usual stuff.  I’ve always respected your work, but I’ll be honest, there’s always been an emotional distance between me and you.  I guess I just never felt like you guys were sincere.  Not that sincerity has anything to do with anything, but honestly, you guys have always been so into yourselves, that having fans almost seems redundant.  And when I say that you’re into yourselves, I just mean that you are literally sex, drugs, and rock and roll.  Nothing exists outside of that.  You are the only band I can picture going out on tour even if absolutely no one showed up for your concerts.  Which obviously would never happen, but yeah, Mick would still be strutting around the stage and all of you will continue to teeter ever closer to death with nary a thought other than what song you’re going to sing next, what person you’re going to have sex with next, and what drug you’re going to ingest next.  When it comes down to it, The Rolling Stones, you just don’t need me.  And that’s cool.  I’ll still be there to listen to and record all of your music off the radio.  I can almost hear you giving a shit.

“Almost Hear You Sigh”

<awesome The Rolling Stones jam>

I can almost hear you sigh

I can almost hear you cry

On every crooowded street

All the places we would meet

What’ll I do withoutcha

Say that life goes on

I’m feelin’ sorry fo myself

Can’t believe you gone

And ya acted much too calm
Turned on all the charm
Ya had a cooooold look in your eyes (ooooooo)

(Ooo ooo ooo ooo ooooo)
(Ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo)
(Ooo ooo ooo ooo ooooo)
(Ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo)

I can feel your tongue on mine

Mmmm, silky smoooooth like wine

I’m livin’ with these memories

S’all that’s left you and me

I can almost hear you sigh
Almost hear you cry
When you made sweet love to me

And ya turned on all the charm
Acted much too calm
Ya had a coooold look in your eye (oooo)

Did it mean nothing

Was it all in vain

Was I just ya fool

Or was the pleasure paaain

Have ya set me free

Or will I wake up in the mornin’ and find out
It’s been a bad dream (ooooo)

(Ooo ooo ooo ooo ooooo)
(Ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo)
(Ooo ooo ooo ooo ooooo)
(Ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo)

Come on

I beg ya

I wanna be yo main man

<awesome The Rolling Stones jam>

I can almost hear you sigh
Almost hear you cry
When you made sweet love to me (ooooo)
Almost see you smile
It stretched half a mile
Ya had a stone cold look in yo eyes (ooooo)

Yeah!

Ohhhh

Come ooooon

I will see there

I don’t need no photograph (ooooo)

Come on
Come on, girl (oooooo)
