: "'Starfucker' is very similar to 'It's Only Rock And Roll.'"
: You know what Stones song quite surprisingly reminds me of "Star Star"?
: "Flight 505" from AFTERMATH. Maybe it's the manner in which Mick phrases the lyrics, but when I hear "Flight 505," I think of that most notorious, but most enjoyable, tune concluding GOATS HEAD SOUP.
: A further remark about "Star Star": I recently purchased a C.D. titled PURE '70's which has Carly Simon's song "You're So Vain" (1971), which I like to think of as "Mick's song, with Carly Simon on lead vocals." But anyhow, I noticed one phrase in "You're So Vain," is: "we made a pretty pair," which, of course, later is heard in "Star Star."
: Mick and Carly --- NOT exactly what I'd consider to be a "pretty pair."
: Also, I've always just assumed that at some point along the way probably bagged Ms. Simon --- but is there any factual substantiation to my suspicions?
I've heard he did some of the things in the song, like rent a plane to Nova Scotia for the eclipse, and you know he's been "with the wife of a close friend". I can't remember some of the other stuff, but I think it would be funny if that song was about Mick, even funnier if Mick knew before he sang along. I think Mick and Carly's kid would look a lot like that Muppet girl who had the huge lips and stringy blonde hair.
