torgo4ever : That harmonic squeek where she goes up an octave is amazing. There are probably only a handful of human beings on earth capable of making that sound with their voice !!!

sarah jones-hnaby : This lady does not get the credit she deserves . Gives me goosebumps every time . Best song in history . The Rolling Somebodies 👍🏼

MrMadeintheuk : Unfortunately, you cut out the part that makes this backup part so incredible. Merry Clayton suffered a mis-carriage on the way home from this studio session. I don't believe in superstition but I'm sure something can be said about sacrifice. Edit: I forgot that the comment section on Youtube is filled with human garbage.

thebestfreethrowcoach : Did her singing this hard cause her miscarriage? Should she have been singing this loud while pregnant? Should the musicians have let a pregnant woman sing that hard? "She had a miscarriage upon returning home from recording "Gimme Shelter", according to the LA Times.[15]"
