‘Eazy Sleazy,’ Mick Jagger’s Pandemic/Lockdown Song

Eazy Sleazy

‘Eazy Sleazy,’ Mick Jagger’s new single

 

What could be the most surprising part of ‘Eazy Sleazy,’ Mick Jagger’s new song and video. The fact that, at 77 years old, Mick can still sing at the top of his lungs and move with this intact style to deliver a powerful rock & roll performance? Or the fact that he has some very interesting opinions about the pandemic and the lockdown? At a time when some aging rockers (I am looking at you Van Morrison and Ian Brown) have completely fallen for crazy conspiracy theories, Mick has some fun with the same stuff, but he ended up writing a satirical rock song.

‘I wanted to share this song that I wrote about eventually coming out of lockdown, with some much-needed optimism – thank you to Dave Grohl for jumping on drums, bass, and guitar, it was a lot of fun working with you on this – hope you all enjoy Eazy Sleazy !’ Mick Jagger wrote.

Dave Grohl was actually another surprise. Is there any dream project left for him at this point? But his declaration turns him into the expected fanboy he has always been: ‘It’s hard to put into words what recording this song with Sir Mick means to me. It’s beyond a dream come true. Just when I thought life couldn’t get any crazier… and it’s the song of the summer, without a doubt!!’

The song of the summer? Let’s hope most of the pandemic will be behind us by summer, but who knows. The song booms and bounces with some insane energy, it simply rocks hard with aggressive riffs, shouted lyrics, and a Stones-like chorus – ‘But it’s easy, easy everything’s gonna get really freaky.’ You can tell Mick had some real fun with the delivery and the lyrics, name-checking every side of our lockdown life, from the COVID graphs to the pretty masks to the TikTok stupid dances (I have to fully agree with Mick on this one) to Zoom conferences to too much TV and new hobbies. He gives a nod to Paul (who wrote a full lockdown album) and the Beatles, ‘You got to rob Peter if you’re paying Paul,’ ‘Easy, cheesy, everyone sing ‘Please Please Me,’ and crams together all the conspiracies in one verse with the imagery of a pandemic fever dream: ‘Shooting the vaccine bill gates is in my bloodstream/Its mind control/The earth is flat and cold its never warming up/The arctics turned to slush/The second comings late/There’re aliens in the deep state.’

‘I’m sure an atmosphere of isolation or semi-isolation has changed what’s being created in this period. I’m sure it subtly affected a lot of people’s subject material and the way they write music.’ Mick said in an interview. ‘I haven’t written loads of songs about it. ‘Eazy Sleazy’ is the only song I’ve written on this subject. I wrote it really quickly a few weeks ago. I thought, ‘Well, I might as well do one on the whole experience of it in a semi-humorous way.’ I mean, it’s not at all humorous, obviously, because it’s not a subject of total humor. But, it’s an experience of having to be in a very different kind of world for a whole year now.’

Mick Jagger wrote a pandemic/lockdown song and I like it.
