Rolling Stones week is over, and we can almost hear you sigh



As we conclude Rolling Stones week on Lost and Found, it is fitting we close with the final single from the '80s. For the Stones, their charting days were about over and as depressing as it sound, it is enough to Almost Hear You Sigh.

The Stones' 1989 album Steel Wheels was a success hitting No. 3 on the album charts and yielding Top 40 hits like Mixed Emotions and Rock And A Hard Place. The fourth and last single off of Steel Wheels was Almost Hear You Sigh. The song only made it to No. 50 on the pop charts but was a number one song on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. No other Stones single released after the '80s would chart higher than No. 60.

Almost Hear You Sigh is a calm, soulful song similar to other slow-down classics like Wild Horses and Fool To Cry and the video is a stylish filmed in black and white. The song was originally written to be on Keith Richards' solo album Talk Is Cheap, but Jagger liked the song enough that they reworked if for the Rolling Stones.

On April 5th, the Stones opened Exhibitionism at the Saatchi Art Gallery in the Chelsea region of London (where the Stones got their start). The exhibit includes over 550 mementos and historical artifacts telling the Rolling Stone story and will continue until Sept. 4th.
