This week’s video relating to music alluded to in the novel The Ten Weeks is the Rolling Stones’ “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.”  In this case, the performance comes from their 1997-8 “Bridges to Babylon” tour, so they had come a long way from their heyday and the era of the novel.

But “Bridges to Babylon” is a good way to describe a lot of what was going on in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s, and some of the characters in the novel were busy building bridges of such a kind.
