Treasures: The Rolling Stones ‘Have You Seen Your Mother, Baby, Standing In The Shadows’

This song makes me wobble like a three year old at playgroup

I realise I might be late to the party, but I have just discovered The Rolling Stones’ ‘Have You Seen Your Mother, Baby, Standing In The Shadows’.

It’s the kind of unbelievably massive rock ‘n’ roll dance tune that, if I wasn’t a mature, discerning and professional musical journalist, I would put on the record player and hurl myself around the room to.

Meanwhile, my girlfriend would be giving me the angry eyes because we were meant to be talking about wedding stuff, but instead the man she’s about to commit the rest of her life to is dancing like a retarded toddler and refusing to pick any wedding cake that’s not in the shape of a pirate galleon.

Like I said though, I’m a serious music professional, so that wouldn’t happen to me.
