One hundred thousand disparos
Lost in the jails of South America
Cuddle up baby
Cuddle up tight
Cuddle up baby
Keep it all out of sight
Keep it all out of sight
Undercover of the night

I feel for you grading.

Last live R&R show I ever saw was headlined by the Stones, Oakland Coliseum CA. July 27, 1979.

Gah...Forget the Stones, man! Bring on the Floyd!

Pink Floyd also weighed in with: The Final Cut: A Requiem for the Post-War Dream (1983), re: Falklands/Malvinas War of 1982, sinking of the Argentine cruiser General Belgrano ("all hands down"), & the Zeitgeist of the early 80s.

"Undercover of the Night" is an excellent song, well used in The Sopranos. The video prefigures Reservoir Dogs ;)

I had to say that I was shocked back then to see the Stones making what I took as a statement about politics in Latin America. And a pretty good song, too.
