227 – The Rolling Stones – (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction (1965)
Written by Jagger/ Richards
Produced by Andrew Loog Oldham
Label – Decca
Mick Jagger has often stated that “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” was the most important record the band ever released. It launched their status from big to huge and fully realize the confidence in himself and Keith Richards to completely move away from the R&B covers of other artists, and concentrate on writing their own material. Richards’ fuzz box riff is of course the chief component, but lets not forget Jagger’s increasingly frustrated vocal which adds the necessary sexual tension that would intrigue teenagers, and scare the living daylights out of their parents.
