Hey world, were you really surprised that Mick Jagger was as good as he was on Saturday Night Live? The geezer is a consumate professional, and he's got someone's eye to stick a needle in since his co-worker Keith Richards got all that love for his memoir Life in which he went on about how Mick has a "tiny todger." 

On SNL, Jagger was only as sharp as he was at the 2011 Grammy's when he sang Solomon Burke's "Everybody Needs Somebody To Love" or at the White House when he did Robert Johnson's "Sweet Home Chicago," and handed the microphone over to President Obama. 

I'm told he was funny in the skits, too, but her let's focus on the music here, with clips of Jagger doing "The Last Time," with Arcade Fire as his band, "19th Nervous Breakdown" and "It's Only Rock n' Roll" with Foo Fighters backing him up, a blues called "Tea Party" he wrote fro Mitt Romney with Jeff Beck on guitar, and the Aracade Fire-backed  "She's a Rainbow"/'Ruby Tuesday" goodbye to Kristen Wiig.
