The Rolling Stones – Start Me Up
So Nicole and I were playing board games tonight, and came upon a tie; I won the game of Tribond that we played (in an inspiring come-from-behind victory!), and Nicole managed to slimly beat me out in the music edition of Scene It!
But a debate between us over the answer to one of the questions provided the tie breaker; Nicole began to sing the chorus, singing on something of an ascending scale. I argued that the melody was actually sung in a higher pitch, slightly descending.
So we watched the video above to get the answer, and it would seem as though she was right. Mick Jagger himself seems to be singing the part she was, and Ron Woods and Keith Richards are singing my part, which turned out to be the harmony (side note: some debates we have, wouldn’t you say?).
At any rate, we had a big laugh over it while watching the video – it’s funny to see the members of the band at such a young age. And Mick Jagger’s undulating dance moves can only be described as entertaining…
