"Citadel" as written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards....
Men are armed shout who goes there
We have journeyed far from here
Armed with bibles make us swear

Candy and taffy, hope we both are well
Please come see me in the citadel

Flags are flying, dollar bills
Round the heights of concrete hills
You can see the pinnacles

Candy and taffy, hope we both are well
Please come see me in the citadel

In the streets are many walls
Hear the peasants come and crawl
You can hear their lovers call

Candy and taffy, hope we both are well
Please come see me in the citadel

Screaming people fly so fast
In their shiny metal cars
Through the woods of steel and glass

Candy and taffy, hope we both are well
Please come see me in the citadel

    General CommentBeautiful, poetic capturing of the spirit of modern urban life. A psychedelic rhapsody on the idea of the "citadel", ranging from "big city" imagery right on down to the very core of identity; that we erect the wall between "me" and "you" so we can play the game of individual identity.

    And... Add to all that, the fact that Citadel is good old, solid, danceable, tranceable rock'n'roll! I was weaned on this stuff, and I still respond to it!

    General CommentI have always REALLY liked those opening chords!

    What are they?

    They're good and loud of course, but why are they worse for our ears than other chords?

    My OpinionI always felt the words Candy and Taffy were the names of girls
