One of the most grown-up moments of their career, "Fool to Cry" is a falsetto ballad about a child helping Jagger through heartbreak. It's highlighted by Nicky Hopkins' airy Fender Rhodes jazz keyboard and slide guitar from Wayne Perkins. Written almost entirely by Jagger, it was never a Richards favorite: He fell asleep when they played it live in 1976.
