Gimme Shelter | The Rolling Stones

 As much as I love the Stones, this song would be nothing without Merry Clayton. She makes this song:

“At about 2:59 into the song, Clayton’s voice cracks twice from the strain of her powerful singing; once during the second refrain, on the word ‘shot’ from the last line, and then again during the first line of the third and final refrain, on the word ‘murder’, after which Jagger can be heard saying ‘Whoo!’ in response to Clayton’s emotional delivery. She suffered a miscarriage upon returning home, apparently due to the strain involved in reaching the highest notes.”

It still gives me chills every time I listen to this song.

Listening to this song is never going to be the same. Shudder. In simultaneously the best and worst possible ways. Amazing.
