The Rolling Stones’ 364th Worst Song. Now I’ve Got A Witness (Like Uncle Gene and Uncle Phil)

This Nanker Phelge instrumental is off of England’s Newest Hitmakers. It features lots of Ian Stewart on the organ, Jagger on the harp (I presume), and a rank and kind of exciting guitar solo.  Stewie seems to be a recurring theme in these low-rated songs. Judge for yourself:

The tune is from the same sessions and was released on the same album that produced this cover of Marvin Gaye’s hit, which was written by Holland-Dozier-Holland. Can I get a witness is judged to be the 324th worst song by the Rolling Stones.

  1. I now feel no need to get into these rankings. Their cover of Can I Get a Witness is Grade A.

    I have zero sympathy for anyone who is offended by the Rolling Stones. Women can always reverse genders in the lyrics, which they used to do automatically before they knew enough to be outraged. It’s as if no women ever sang songs about stupid (fill in pejorative adjective) men. And not one black person I have ever known was ever offended by Brown Sugar, Some Girls, or Sweet Black Angel. In fact, my black friends and co-workers thought the Stones were one of the few white bands worth their time. So fuck the Political Correctness Police. They’re just like their puritanical parents before them. The Stones no doubt savor thre irony.
