I ask, what's not to love about a meme that says, "We don't have any rules ... we hate rules."! Let's hear it for Saturday 9's Crazy Sam Winters and the Rolling Stones!
Unfamiliar with "Start Me Up"? Hear it here!

That's a goat wearing a high heel. What's on your feet as you answer these questions?
Oh, poor thing! Me, I'm all about bare feet.
More fashion: In the video for this song, Mick is wearing white pants with an elastic waistband. Are you wearing a belt as you answer these questions?
In this song, Mick pleads, "Don't make a grown man cry." When is the last time you shed a tear?
I don't often weep over major heartbreak ... almost like my grief's too deep for tears.
On the other hand, I easily lose it over a random contestant's story of overcoming, or a soldier's homecoming. Don't even get me started on big screen finales!
Keith Richards (swoon!) has said this is a song he could play "forever and ever." What in your life doesn't get old, no matter how often you do it?
Almost every weekday for the last 5-6 years I enjoy a lunch of 'loose meat' (80/20 ground chuck). Lately, I've even been late-night snitching spoons-full cold, right from the fridge.
While the Rolling Stones enjoy performing songs like this one, from Tattoo You, Mick Jagger has dismissed the songs from their 1967 album Their Satanic Majesties Request as 'rubbish.' Do you have a favorite Rolling Stones song?
It's a toss-up between "Paint It Black" and "Satisfaction."
(Personal aside) -- A while back I grew SO annoyed when a Voice contestant sang "Satisfaction" more like one would a ballad. Aargh! "Where's the frustration!... the angst!"
DH always gets amused at my upset if someone takes a Big Song and puts his/her own spin on it. (I know. I need to get a life.)
This recording of "Start Me Up" features a cowbell. Do you remember which Saturday Night Live host made "More cowbell!" a catch phrase?
No. I don't recall ever having watched SNL. 'Not particularly fond of their sort of humor.
Bassist Bill Wyman once said he thought he should have been an archivist because he loved to make lists. Do you have a to-do list?
I'm a chronic list-maker! In fact, Paula has piqued my interest in something called a Bullet Journal. Are any of you doing Bullet Journals?
Mick finds it hard to stand still when he sings, not only on stage but also in the studio. The engineer for this song reports that Mick would have to run across the room to get back to the microphone for his vocal. Are you more fidgety, or still?
More like sedentary! :)
Random question: Do you believe men are inherently more sensible than women?
No. But I understand where society once shaped those expectations, those presumptions.

Have a grand Saturday, friends!
