THE 1000 BEST SONGS IN THE WORLD EVER.
160-The Rolling Stones-Miss You.
1978-Number 3 single.
Best Bit-At 2.18.The Stones once sang ‘It’s Only Rock ‘N’ Roll But I Like It.’But this isn’t just ‘Rock ‘N’ Roll’,its Disco as well.
Like Lennon and McCartney,Jagger and Richards(see also best songs 933-662 and 452) always shared writing credits no matter who wrote what,in the case of ‘Miss You’ it was all Jagger.
The song was written in 1977 during rehearsals with Billy Preston for performances in Canada.The critically acclaimed ‘Bass’ on the song was written and performed by Bill Wyman who recalled,’When I did the riff for Miss You,which made the song,and every band in the world copied it for the next year,Rod Stewart,all of them,it still said Jagger/Richards.When I wrote the riff for ‘Jumpin’ Jack Flash’,it became Jagger/Richards and that’s the way it was.It just became part and parcel of the way the band functioned.’
‘Hey,what’s the matter man,we’re gonna come around at twelve with some Puerto Rican girls that are just dyin’ to meet you.’
