Saturday 9

Saturday 9: Start Me Up (1981)
... because Kwizgiver recommended The Rolling Stones

1) That's a goat wearing a high heel. What's on your feet as you answer these questions? Just toenail polish.

2) More fashion: In the video for this song, Mick is wearing white pants with an elastic waistband. Are you wearing a belt as you answer these questions? Nope
3) In this song, Mick pleads, "Don't make a grown man cry." When is the last time you shed a tear? I don't remember

4) Keith Richard has said this is a song he could play "forever and ever." What in your life doesn't get old, no matter how often you do it? I'm watching a TLC documentary on Princess Diana. It occurs to me that I've been reading about Diana and the boys for more than 30 years now. So I'd say, for me, royal watching doesn't get old.

5) While The Rolling Stones enjoy performing songs, like this one, from Tattoo You, Mick Jagger has dismissed the songs from their 1967 album Their Satanic Majesties Request as "rubbish." Do you have a favorite Rolling Stones song? I'm not much of a Stones fan, but I do enjoy this one, also from Tattoo You.

6) This recording of "Start Me Up" features a cowbell. Do you remember which Saturday Night Live host made, "More cowbell!" a catchphrase? Christopher Walken. I can't get over how often I still the meme and this t-shirt, even after more than 15 years.

7) Bassist Bill Wyman once said he thought he should have been a archivist because he loved to make lists. Do you have a to-do list? No

8) Mick finds it hard to stand still when he sings, not only on stage but also in the studio. The engineer for this song reports that Mick would have to run across the room to get back to the microphone for his vocal. Are you more fidgety, or still? I'm a fidgeter.

9) Random question: Do you believe men are inherently more sensible than women? No.



  1. I'd forgotten about Hang Fire. Good choice.
    I need that Christopher Walken shirt!

  2. I'm surprised you don't have a to-do list. I think I have too many. Here's the sneaker I wear: It used to be called Aetrex but they changed the name. New Balance used to work well for me, the #928, but they changed the shoe, but you might give those a look as well. They have a very stiff sole and (used to be, anyway) are fairly well made. Has to be that # in the shoe; not any New Balance will do. Good luck!

  3. You know you are getting when teenagers ask you "Who's Princess Diana?"

  4. 30 years? Oh my goodness!

  5. I use to watch and read all of those Diana things too. I even had the hair-do(n't). Now, I am into the 911 stuff especially this time of the year.

  6. I love all the Diana memories. I truly felt like we could be the best of friends.

  7. Loved your succinct, "No", to the last answer. Love that T shirt! Very fun!

  8. Yes, I'm a royal-watcher, too. Love QEII and her whole brood. They are so entertaining! And I especially love all the hats!
