Music of My Youth VIII -- Gimme Shelter

 The Rolling Stones Gimme Shelter. I used the video that includes the lyrics because they explain why this was one of the anthems of the Vietnam War. This songs rocks. It also brings back memories of the those years.

 

Update: From the comments. Kurt suggests that Grand Funk Railroad did a better version. Here it is.

Also known as "That song they play in a Scorsese film when the shit really starts hitting the fan."

Call me a heretic (or better, an America), but I like the GFR version, especially the live one, better...

Oh no. Not again!

Never thought I'd say this... but can we have more Dad Jokes please?

HAR HAR HAR! I suppose I shouldn't be a dink. At least you aren't playing the stuff poor old Phil does. His music sounds like a bad day at the welding and fab shop. ;)

Interesting comparison of the two... :-)

I am biased. I think that GFR's red album and live album are some of the finest rock ever recorded.
