Song of the Day #2,950: ‘She’s So Cold’ – The Rolling Stones

rolling_stones_emotiional_rescueThe Rolling Stones essential period lasted from the mid 60s to the early 70s, when they ran off more than a dozen albums that are sexy, cerebral and alive. They faded after that, as all great music acts do, and have churned out solid if unspectacular work ever since.

But for a brief period in the late 70s and early 80s, they had a bit of a resurgence. 1978’s Some Girls and 1981’s Tattoo You are the standouts, but nestled between them, 1980’s Emotional Rescue is a serviceable collection of odds and ends.

Best known for its title track and today’s SOTD, ‘She’s So Cold,’ Emotional Rescue gave a home to several leftover Some Girls tracks and others written in the same vein.

I remember ‘She’s So Cold’ from my high school days, where it was a staple on the classic rock station and a favorite among my group of knucklehead friends.

{Intro}

I’m so hot for her, I’m so hot for her
I’m so hot for her and she’s so cold
I’m so hot for her, I’m on fire for her
I’m so hot for her and she’s so cold
I’m the burning bush, I’m the burning fire
I’m the bleeding volcano
I’m so hot for her, I’m so hot for her
I’m so hot for her and she’s so cold
{Hook}

Yeah, I tried re-wiring her
Tried re-firing her
I think her engine is permanently stalled

She’s so cold she’s so cold
She’s so cold cold cold
Like a tombstone
She’s so cold, she’s so cold
She’s so cold cold, cold like an ice cream cone
She’s so cold she’s so cold
I dare not touch her my hand just froze

{Hook}

Yeah, I’m so hot for hot for her, I’m so hot for her
I’m so hot for her and even so
Put your hand on the heat, put your hand on the heat
Aw Come on baby, let’s go
She’s so cold, she’s so cold, cold, she’s so c-c-c-old
But she’s beautiful, though
Yeah, she’s so cold

{Bridge}

She’s so cold, she’s so cold
She was born in an arctic zone
She’s so cold she’s so cold, cold, cold
I dare not touch her my hand just froze
She’s so cold, she’s so goddamn cold she’s so
Cold cold cold she’s so cold

{Hook}

Who would believe you were a beauty indeed
When the days get shorter and the nights get long
Lie awake when the rain comes
Nobody will know, when you’re old
When you’re old, nobody will know
That you was a beauty, a sweet sweet beauty
A sweet sweet beauty, but stone stone cold

You’re so cold, you’re so cold, cold, cold
You’re so cold, you’re so cold
I’m so hot for you, i’m so hot for you
I’m so hot for you and you’re so cold
I’m the burning bush, I’m the burning fire
I’m the bleeding volcano

{Outro}

    I always liked the vibe of “Emotional Rescue.” This song….not as much.
