can't stop listening to...oooh la lalalalala


I feel like such a fucking hippie....but it's SO GREAT. Pshh, let's face it: Altamont proved that the Stones

are

not

part of any hippie scene, man.

But..this song makes me wanna dance around the apartment. Oh, the shame. The shame.

Speaking of shame...I have become addicted to crack cocaine, aka: American Idol. Whoops! How did that happen!? My dad is the video supplier; my dealer. I also have another source for analysis and insight... There will be more written about this. I have to tell you: it's rich. *riche* even.

SHE'S A RAINBOW

(Jagger/Richards)

She comes in colors everywhere; She combs her hair
She's like a rainbow
Coming colors in the air
Oh, everywhere
She comes in colors
She comes in colors everywhere; She combs her hair
She's like a rainbow

Coming colors in the air
Oh, everywhere
She comes in colors
Have you seen her dressed in blue
See the sky in front of you
And her face is like a sail
Speck of white so fair and pale
Have you seen the lady fairer

She comes in colors everywhere; She combs her hair
She's like a rainbow
Coming colors in the air
Oh, everywhere
She comes in colors
Have you seen her all in gold
Like a queen in days of old
She shoots colors all around
Like a sunset going down
Have you seen the lady fairer

She comes in colors everywhere;
She combs her hair
She's like a rainbow
Coming colors in the air
Oh, everywhere
She comes in colors
She's like a rainbow
Coming colors in the air
Oh, everywhere
She comes in colors

Hold on.

So the Stones do some drugs, grow their hair long, write songs about sex and drugs and rock and roll, organize a huge love-fest that happens to go wrong because of some thugs (that were also used by the Grateful Dead), and are absolutely recognized with the counter culture of the late 60s. And they write a song called "Shes a rainbow."

Now, my common definition of hippie would include most of those things. I don't think the disaster at Altamont had a hell of a lot to do with the Stones and more to do with the Angels.

So why aren't they hippies? And if they aren't, can you provide some measuring stick on what is or isn't a hippie?

Is it cause they aren't psychedellic?

P.s. Have you read Hunter's book on the angels? It rocks.
