YGMR - Why do you hate it?

Please tell me why so many people hate YGMR so much.  It passes for the "hit single" on Voodoo Lounge (since the sub-midtempo groove of "Love is Strong" was hard for them to hit live, and ultimately forgettable).

Don't hold back, now... Grin

I don't hate it.  I just don't like it much...for the exact same reason I don't like "Rough Justice".

I love it! It made me remember the first show in Mexico City in 1995 singing the whole song louder than Mick

It's a rocking master piece, and I have always said the same... many left for this reason, probably more than for the Joey's thread

I think it sounds bitchin' on Voodoo Lounge.  I used to think the lyrics were too simple, but I began to buy into their optimism - something I rarely buy into.  It fits in with "I Go Wild" and "Suck on the Jugular" - two songs that are borderline dicey themselves.

It's one of Keith's best solos ever recorded. Charlie fires the engine and it's glorious. One of the best rockers!

Uninspired, almost contrived music.  This song is "phoning it in" on an album full of filler already.  Sadly, I don't think the Stones get the difference between YGMR and songs like If You Can't Rock Me or Crazy Mama, which at least sound like an effort was made.  I don't even think they get the chasmatic difference between YGMR and Brown Sugar.

Hondo.

Yack yap.  MONDO.  Rhymes with Hondo.  Yap?

Not almost.......IS!

It's as if they were trying to create their own anthem-type signature tune.
With a catalog as robust as the Stones' the last thing they need is a cheerleading song to get the crowd going.

YGMR is calculated, but so are Mixed Emotions and the hideous Sad, Sad, Sad - my least favorite stage number.  Good stage versions of YGMR beat any SSS any day.

There are a lot of good latter-day songs that rarely get performed, yet they seem to choose this one to 'showcase' the band's post-1981 output above all others.

Its a decent enough song on Voodoo Lounge but it simply doesnt deserve to have been as prominent in their repertoire as it has been.

Still, it could have been worse...Mick could have been imploring us to punch our fists in the air whilst shouting "Sharks Will Cry" for the last two decades. Be thankful for small mercies.
