Tony, I really love the Undercover album because it works on a lot of different levels for me, nostalgia included. But you're missing out on a few things after that, for sure.
One Hit (To The Body) is one of the Stones coolest things, even though it's from a marginal album. But just a couple of rockers other than what you mentioned are as enjoyable as She Was Hot.
Hold On To Your Hat has a nice riff going thru it. Highwire suffers only because of timely lyrics. If Mick had made it a one on one lyrical thing, it would have been fucking HUGE! As it was, a stupid war ended too soon for that song to make it (and I thought the war was stupid, so I'm glad it was short).
Voodoo Lounge is full of cool stuff, but for one example (which the Storm has used as many examples of syncopation) Mean Disposition absolutely rocks! All the way through, it's a total keeper.
Not to mention Rock And A Hard Place, which isn't one of my favorites, but my brother in law that is in the over 50 age group, pointed out that "you younger guys don't really know just how much that song hits home - it rocks hard, and Jagger's totally in touch with what I'm struggling with. At least he sounds like he is."
And I think Out Of Control is another really cool song from a marginal album.
They can't all be Exile...
Rock on, Tony!
