Doom and Gloom
Do you need access to your favorite Rolling Stones songs, as well as Stones videos and info on the band, 24/7? You’re in luck (if you have an iPhone): there’s an app for that.
At their two Paris gigs, the Stones stuck with some of the classics: “It’s Only Rock and Roll (But I Like It),” “Miss You,” “Tumbling Dice,” “Start Me Up,” “Midnight Rambler,” “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” and “Brown Sugar” all made both shows, as did their new song “Doom and Gloom.” Last night’s gig added some other deep cuts, including “All Down The Line” from 1972’s Exile On Main Street, and “You Got Me Rockin'” from 1994’s Voodoo Lounge. But we have some requests for the band when they hit the arenas.

in “Doom and Gloom,” Mick Jagger specifically alludes to America’s War in Iraq, fracking and the energy crisis, and the current 99 percent vs. one percent class war.
