One of my favorite Stones songs. GIMME SHELTER rocks and well, Merry Clayton brings it home. Jagger and the boys are in great form -- the instrumentals are great, Mick's voice is in its best form -- but to me Clayton's abrupt entrance with simply fab-tastic voice MAKES the song.

Good, solid album too.

Same deal.
The Departed.
Costello: "Fin, don't make me have to come down here again ...for this."
Fin: It won't happen agai Mr. C.
Costello: Carmen's developing into a fine young woman, you get your period yet Carmen?
[turns] You Johhny Sullivan's kid?
Collin: [nods]
Costello: You live with your grandmother? ... You do good in school? ... I did too, they call that a paradox. Fin! get him a couple loves of bread some bologna, throw some mayo in a coupla gallons of milk...you like comic books? [to Carmen] Just keep it - Buy yourself some makeup [whispers to her she smiles] [to Collin] You ever wanna earn a little extra money, you come by L-Street, you know where I am on L-Street.
...Church wants you in place, kneel stand, kneel stand. You go in for something like that, IDK what to do for ya. A Man Makes His Own Way. Non Serviant.
Collin: James Joyce.
Costello: Smart Collin. Guineas up north down Providence try to tell ME what to do....an maybe something happened to them. maybe... like that. [gun-shots]
[jump-cut to beach, Costello is executing a blidfolded, screaming couple]: She fell funny. [laughs]
French: Francis you really should see somebody.
[jump-back to garage]: In school they told us we could become cops or criminals. Today what I'm sayin' to you is this. When you're facing a loaded gun....what's the difference? there... That's my boy.

This is an old song but I've just recently heard it and got hooked on it. I would reccommend it to any one even if their not a Rolling Stones fan.

...if only for its inclusion on the "Adventures in Babysitting" soundtrack. Oh, and those Xbox 360 games. Nice.

Bought the song on Amazon because that's where I was when I remembered that I needed the song for a playlist. Bought it. 99 cents, no biggie, I never found the song on my desktop, in iTunes, or anywhere. Instead I got a receipt and a tutorial on opening my Amazon Cloud account. I wanted the song, not a new cloud app. I eventually got the song on iTunes, and it looks like that's where I will continue to get my music. I won't be buying any more MP3s from Amazon in the future, and that's a disappointment, given how much I love the rest of Amazon. Great song. Lousy buying experience. By the way, if anyone in Customer Service reads this, contact me & I'll tell you all about it.

C'mon now, it's a classic. What's not to like? As a side note, pay attention to when the girl sings solo - her voice cracks because she's so passionate in her wailing, and you can hear Jagger in the background go "woo!" They left it in because they liked it so much, and it's actually my favorite part of the song!

Mick Jagger did an interview with NPR on Gimme Shelter which says a lot about the song and the female singer. A music critic it said that female soprano voice is close to a scream (I beleive he said it about Maria Callis). That is what the female singer is doing on this song screaming.
