Inspiration

There a few songs that get my creative juices flowing EVERY time I them. The one song that never fails me is “Street Fighting Man’ by the Rolling Stones.

The words create such vibrant images, my brain just lights up.

“Everywhere I hear the sound of marching, charging feet, boy,
‘Cause summer’s here and the time is right for fighting in the street, boy”

and

“Hey, said my name is called Disturbance;
I’ll shout and scream, I’ll kill the King, I’ll rail at all his servants”

Can’t quite explain it. Is it the way Jagger wails “street fighting maaaaaaan?

Or maybe its the haunting sitar that lurks in the background?

This is one song that just does it for me.
