This Could Be The Last Time, Apparently

George Szirtes is asking his readers to tell him which opening passages to pieces of music marked changed times for them – his include the opening chord of “Hard Days Night,” and my own reply would be another sixties moment, the drum sequence that opens the Rolling Stones collectivist anthem “Get Off Of My Cloud.” Not telling you why.

As I’m nailed to my job for the next 48 hours or so, I’m leaving you with more Stones. There is relevance to our usual subject matter here, but you’ll have to watch the video to find out how and what.

  1. Ah! George Best, moving rather more stiffly and mournfully than he did on the field…. I think Jagger might have made a very good winger himself. Naturally elusive legs.
