In the wake of news that Keith Richards finds Mick “unbearable” and refers to him alternately as “Her Majesty” and “Brenda,” I thought I would point out four good reasons to celebrate Mick. Here are four spectacular tunes from his unheralded solo albums Wandering Spirit (1993) and Goddess in the Doorway (2001). Lyrically, these songs touch on several of Mick’s favorite themes — passage of time; highs and lows of hedonism; and loneliness. 1. DON’T TEAR ME UP; 2. EVENING GOWN; 3. TOO FAR GONE; and 4. BRAND NEW SET OF RULES. Sprinkle these four selections into any of your existing playlists; you won’t be disappointed.
