1965-Number 1 single.
Best Bit-At 2.40.The song that catapulted The Stones from just another band into the second most popular of that time.
‘(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction’ was written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards(see also best songs 933-662-452 and 160.) Richards has stated that he awoke in the middle of the night with this songs riff in his head,he recorded it with his acoustic guitar on to a Philips cassette player,then went back to sleep.The lyrics by Jagger are about sexual frustration and commercialism,for example the line,’but he can’t be a man ’cause he doesn’t smoke the same cigarettes as me’ is a reference to the ‘Marlboro Cowboy’ a figure used by the Marlboro tobacco company to advertise cigarettes from 1955-1999.Another lyric,’baby,better come back maybe next week can’t you see I’m on a losing streak,’ is a reference to menstruation.
Keith Richards was not totally happy with all the tracks instrumentation,he felt it would benefit if a horn section was added,but he was overruled by the other Stones and Andrew Loog Oldham the songs producer.Later in 1965 Soul legend Otis Redding recorded a version using a horn section which Richards endorsed.
‘When I’m ridin’ ’round the world and I’m doin’ this and I’m signin’ that and I’m tryin’ to make some girl.’
