SEX ACCORDING TO JOHN DONNE “Elegy 19- On His Mistress Going To Bed” “ Licence my roving hands, and let them go, Before, behind, between, above, below. O my America! my new-found-land, My kingdom, safeliest when with one man mann’d, My Mine of precious stones, My Empirie, How blest am I in this discovering thee! To enter in these bonds, is to be free; Then where my hand is set, my seal shall be. Full nakedness! All joys are due to thee”
SEX ACCORDING TO MICK JAGGER “It`s an overwhelming feeling, the audience. That must be why most of these people never give up performing. Because they just can`t go without that sort of rush. It`s a bit like having an orgasm. Sometimes an orgasm is better than being onstage; sometimes being onstage is better than an orgasm.”
DRUGS ACCORDING TO JOHN DONNE The Ecstasy He—though he knew not which soul spake, Because both meant, both spake the same— Might thence a new concoction take, And part far purer than he came. This ecstasy doth unperplex (We said) and tell us what we love ; We see by this, it was not sex ; We see, we saw not, what did move : But as all several souls contain Mixture of things they know not what, Love these mix'd souls doth mix again, And makes both one, each this, and that.
DRUGS ACCORDING TO MICK JAGGER “I was thinking about this the other day, and I don’t really think I was suited to heavy drug behavior, to be perfectly honest. But I don’t mind talking about it. It’s hard to believe that you did so many drugs for so long. That’s what I find really hard. And I didn’t really consider it. You know, it was eating and drinking and taking drugs and having sex. It was just part of life. It wasn’t really anything special. It was just a bit of a bore, really. Everyone took drugs the whole time, and you were out of it the whole time. It wasn’t a special event.”

ROCK AND ROLL ACCORDING TO MICK JAGGER “There`s not a lot in rock that is new. It`s the same kind of chord sequences and the same kind of rhythm references and the same recycling of subject matter. But I don`t think it`s a problem. I mean, traditional musical forms like folk music in three chords or blues are endearing to Americans. They find some comfort in them.”
