What Should Bowie and Jagger Have Sung? new  

Instead of the crass Dancing In The Streets, which had good intentions. maybe they should have done another motown classic. How about marvin Gaye's Whats Goin On?, though it was around this time that Cindi Lauper did a version. But surely there must have been other/better songs in mind.

What made them choose that one anyway.

It's shake appeal, it's "calling out around the world" mantra are my guesses why they chose that one. With their illecit
past, they could've picked another Motown hit like "How Sweet It Is" or "My Guy", but that was five years before Angie spilled the beans(?) to Joan Rivers on national TV.

The song's history is probably a deciding factor in the choice. It was written in response to the race riots of the early sixties, I believe.

That is indeed correct.

I didn't know that, but now you mention it, It does make sense, after all this time I really cannot imagine them singing another song now, but I think this would have been fitting...

War
Edwin Starr


War, huh, yeah
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Uh-huh
War, huh, yeah
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it again, y'all

War, huh, good God
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Listen to me

Ohhh, war, I despise
Because it means destruction
Of innocent lives

War means tears
To thousands of mothers eyes
When their sons go to fight
And lose their lives

I said, war, huh
Good God, y'all
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it again

War, whoa, Lord
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Listen to me

War, it ain't nothing
But a heartbreaker
War, friend only to the undertaker
Ooooh, war
It's an enemy to all mankind
The point of war blows my mind
War has caused unrest
Within the younger generation
Induction then destruction
Who wants to die
Aaaaah, war-huh
Good God y'all
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it, say it, say it
War, huh
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Listen to me

War, huh, yeah
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Uh-huh
War, huh, yeah
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it again y'all
War, huh, good God
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Listen to me

War, it ain't nothing but a heartbreaker
War, it's got one friend
That's the undertaker
Ooooh, war, has shattered
Many a young mans dreams
Made him disabled, bitter and mean
Life is much to short and precious
To spend fighting wars these days
War can't give life
It can only take it away

Ooooh, war, huh
Good God y'all
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it again

War, whoa, Lord
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Listen to me

War, it ain't nothing but a heartbreaker
War, friend only to the undertaker
Peace, love and understanding
Tell me, is there no place for them today
They say we must fight to keep our freedom
But Lord knows there's got to be a better way

Ooooooh, war, huh
Good God y'all
What is it good for
You tell me
Say it, say it, say it, say it

War, huh
Good God y'all
What is it good for
Stand up and shout it
Nothing

This would be as cheesy as dancing in the streets. Brilliant choice. I could imagine it... the same clothes, the same video, just a different song and us discussing the same question two decades later :-P

This is pretty random, but I used to think it was "Dancing in the Sheets."

Seems more appropriate for them.

Poetry is no place for a heart that's a whore.

Yes. "Dancing".

Excuse me, I have to go throw up everything I've ever eaten. Mick Jagger is not one of those people I want to ever imagine having sex with anyone.
