GIMME SHELTER – THE ROLLING STONES

When it comes to apocalyptic jams, having Mick Jagger and American soul singer, Merry Clayton, serenade me about the impending doom of our existence, “Gimme Shelter” is about as good as it gets. From the opening chords to Clayton’s powerful and screeching vocals (raaaaape! murrrrrrrder!), The Rolling Stones deliver a single that transcends the boundaries of any era in time. Considering where our world is headed presently, I believe we’re all entitled to a little doomsday dance with a great classic rock tune.

  1. Gimme Shelter is one of the top three greatest rock and roll songs, along with Layla and Like a Rolling Stone. Got here via 8tracks. Take a listen to my mix over there called – what else? – “Gimme Shelter.”
