'Wild horses couldn't drag me away'



That's right... I think the second best song to get you into Country is by a band from London. But in it's defence, it is arranged by the maestro that is Gram Parsons (his band the Flying Burrito Brothers actually released it a year prior to The Stones). So hopefully that will make it all right.


This is Jagger's best vocal performance, it's quite restrained and doesn't rely on his charm. It has been butchered by other artists over the years, but just enjoy this British Country Ballad for what it was originally .
