14. “Worried About You”
This song is one of the sublime leftovers that made Tattoo You such a revelation upon its release in 1980. It was intended for 1975’s Black And Blue, which is why part-time guitarist Wayne Perkins plays lead on the track. It’s a good thing the Stones picked it off the cutting-room floor, because it features killer Jagger/Richards vocals in the chorus and some of Mick’s most endearing falsetto singing in the verses. Put it all together and it adds up to one of the most soulful songs in the Stones’ imposing catalog.
