Doom and Gloom, the new single by the Rolling Stones, ranks with the best they’ve ever done. It rocks, it’s topical, it’s got punch. And I say that as a (very) long-time Stones fan.
“I had a dream last night that I was piloting a plane
And all the passengers were drunk and insane
I crash landed in a Louisiana swamp
Shot up a horde of zombies
But I come out on top
What’s it all about?
Guess it just reflects my mood
Sitting in the dirt
Feeling kind of hurt
All I hear is doom and gloom
And all is darkness in my room
Through the light, your face I see
Baby take a chance
Baby won’t you dance with me”
