The delicious, droning flip of "Jumpin' Jack Flash" is a fond farewell of sorts to the psychedelia of the Their Satanic Majesties Request era. The sax is Jones, and the subject is likely Jagger's girlfriend Marianne Faithfull. As love letters go, it's pretty impressive: "Child of the moon/Give me a wide-awake, crescent-shaped smile."
