“Before They Make Me Run” – The Rolling Stones

Video

A rare Keith Richards vocal … this was written by Richards when he was facing possible jail time in Canada for heroin possession, circa 1978. From the “Some Girls” album, arguably the last truly great Stones album.

Key lyrics: “Watched the taillights fading, there ain’t a dry eye in the house … They’re laughing and singing … Started dancing and drinking as I left town … Gonna find my way to heaven, `cause I did my time in hell … I wasn’t looking too good but I was feeling real well.”

“Tallahassee Lassie” – Rolling Stones

An outtake from the Stones’ 1978 masterpiece “Some Girls” that should have definitely been included in the original mix of songs, but now has thanks to the Deluxe Edition double CD that was recently released. While this cover of the Freddy Cannon classic is a damn nice discovery, the version by the Flamin’ Groovies from the early 1970s is even better:
