After fascinating and insightful looks at the songs of Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen, music writer Beviglia provides a strong look at the 100 finest songs of the Rolling Stones. Beviglia unearths numerous surprises and musical gems that he hadnt previously heardwhich makes for much of the books appeal. His look at the relatively overlooked song Tops, from 1981, listed at #87, is an excellent description of how the songs musical veering back and forth between the playfulness of the verses and the refrains mirrors the push and pull of Mick Jaggers provocative lyrical role playing. But listing Honky Tonk Womenone of the Stones most famous and memorable songsat #46 is bound to strike even halfhearted Stones listeners as odd, even if he does justifiably list Jumpin Jack Flash at #1. Still, regardless of his rankings, Beviglias writing will inspire readers to turn up the volume. (Nov.)
