Honky Tonk Women" is a 1969 hit song by The Rolling Stones. Released as a single on July 4, 1969 in the United Kingdom, and the next day in the United States, it topped the charts in both nations.
lyric


I met a gin soaked, bar-room queen in Memphis, She tried to take me upstairs for a ride. She had to heave me right across her shoulder 'Cause I just can't seem to drink you off my mind. It's the honky tonk women Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues. I played a divorcee in New York City, I had to put up some kind of a fight.
The lady then she covered me with roses, She blew my nose and then she blew my mind. It's the honky tonk women Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues. (Yeah!) It's the honky tonk women. Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues. (Yeah!) It's the honky tonk women. Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues.


Keith Richards: “Honky Tonk Women” started in Brazil. Mick and I, Marianne Faithfull and Anita Pallenberg who was pregnant with my son at the time. Which didn’t stop us going off to the Mato Grasso and living on this ranch. It’s all cowboys. It’s all horses and spurs. And Mick and I were sitting on the porch of this ranch house and I started to play, basically fooling around with an old Hank Williams idea. ‘Cause we really thought we were like real cowboys. Honky tonk women. And we were sitting in the middle of nowhere with all these horses, in a place where if you flush the john all these black frogs would fly out. It was great. The chicks loved it. Anyway, it started out a real country honk put on, a hokey thing. And then couple of months later we were writing songs and recording. And somehow by some metamorphosis it suddenly went into this little swampy, black thing, a Blues thing. Really, I can’t give you a credible reason of how it turned around from that to that. Except there’s not really a lot of difference between white Country music and black Country music. It’s just a matter of nuance and style. I think it has to do with the fact that we were playing a lot around with open tunings at the time. So we were trying songs out just to see if they could be played in open tuning. And that one just sunk in.”

I've lost interest in (the album cover battle) situation. It's been a complete waste of energy. We agreed to them using a different sleeve in the end and it still hasn't been realised yet. They change their minds all the time about it - come and go. - Mick Jagger, November 1968

Jumpin' Jack Flash

A : Jumpin' Jack Flash (MJ/KR) B : Child Of The Moon (MJ/KR)

Producer : Jimmy MillerSound Engineers : Glyn Johns & Eddie KramerRecorded : 12, 29.03. 11, 20.04.1968Studio : Olympic Sound Studios, London Released : 24.05.1968Decca F 12782
Jumpin’ Jack Flash” is a song realeased in 1968. Called “supernatural Delta blues by way of Swinging London” [1] by Rolling Stone, the song is seen as a return to the Stones’ blues roots after vast experiments on previous works like Between the Buttons and Their Satanic Majesties Request. [2] One of the Stones’ most popular and recognizable songs, “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” has been featured in countless films and the Stones compilation albums Through the Past, Darkly (Big Hits Vol. 2), Hot Rocks, Singles Collection, and Forty Licks .
The name "Jack Flash" came about after Keith and Mick were up all night trying to think of a song. Keith's gardener's footsteps woke them up. When Mick asked what the noise was Keith said it was "Jack Flash" outside. The gardener's name was Jack Dyer. (thanks, Christopher – Chicago, IL
Bill Wyman wrote most of this, including the main riff, on the piano. It was still credited only to Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, something Wyman was never happy about
In March 2005, Q magazine placed “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” at number 2 in its list of the 100 Greatest Guitar Tracks. In 2004, Rolling Stone named the song the 124th greatest song of all time in its list of the “500 Greatest Songs Of All Time”. VH1 placed it at 65 on its show “100 Greatest Rock Songs”.

JUMPIN' JACK FLASH (Demo)

I was born in a cross-fire hurricane And I howled at my ma in the driving rain, But it's all right now, in fact, it's a gas! But it's all right. I'm Jumpin' Jack Flash, It's a gas! Gas! Gas! I was raised by a toothless, bearded hag, I was schooled with a strap right across my back, But it's all right now, in fact, it's a gas! But it's all right, I'm Jumpin' Jack Flash, It's a gas! Gas! Gas! I was drowned, I was washed up and left for dead. I fell down to my feet and I saw they bled. I frowned at the crumbs of a crust of bread. Yeah, yeah, yeah I was crowned with a spike right thru my head. But it's all right now, in fact, it's a gas! But it's all right, I'm Jumpin' Jack Flash, It's a gas! Gas! Gas! Jumping Jack Flash, its a gas Jumping Jack Flash, its a gas Jumping Jack Flash, its a gas Jumping Jack Flash, its a gas Jumping Jack Flash

This is about civil unrest in Europe and America in 1968. There were student riots in London and Paris, and Vietnam protests in America. It was the first Stones song to make a strong political statement. Mick Jagger got the idea for this in March, 1968 when he went to an anti-war rally at the US embassy in London and saw mounted police wading into a crowd of 25,000.The original title of this song was "Did Everybody Pay Their Dues?" It had completely different lyrics and therefore altogether a different and rather strange meaning: Jagger sings about an Indian chief and his family. The music however was basically the same (slightly alternative mixes exist) - but the lead guitar over the chorus was omitted on the final mix of "Street Fighting Man." Fairly listenable versions have appeared on various bootlegs
lyric

Ev'rywhere I hear the sound of marching, charging feet, boy 'Cause summer's here and the time is right for fighting in the street, boy Well then what can a poor boy do Except to sing for a rock 'n roll band 'Cause in sleepy London town There's just no place for a street fighting man No!Hey! Think the time is right for a palace revolution 'Cause where I live the game to play is compromise solution Well then what can a poor boy do Except to sing for a rock 'n' roll band 'Cause in sleepy London town There's no place for a street fighting man No! Get downHey! Said my name is called disturbance I'll shout and scream, I'll kill the king, I'll rail at all his servants Well, what can a poor boy do Except to sing for a rock 'n' roll band 'Cause in sleepy London town There's no place for a street fighting man No!Get down

Between the Buttons was the first record we made when we hadn't been on the road and weren't shit-hot from playing gigs every night. Plus, everyone was stoned out of their brains... Between the Buttons was the first time we took a breath and distanced ourselves a little from the madness of touring and all. So in a way, to us it felt like a bit of a new beginning. But not everybody was in great shape. Brian was starting to be wonky at the time.

Let's Spend The Night Together

A : Let's Spend The Night Together (MJ/KR) B : Ruby Tuesday (MJ/KR)

Producer : Andrew OldhamSound Engineer : Glyn JohnsRecorded : A - 11.1966, B - 16.11.1966Studio : Olympic Sound Studios, London Released : 13.01.1967Decca F 12546
“Let’s Spend the Night Together” is a song by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, originally released by The Rolling Stones in 1967. It has been covered by various artists, most famously David Bowie in 1973. Released in the UK as a single in January 1967, “Let’s Spend the Night Together” reached #3 on the UK Singles Chart. The song was included on the U.S. version of the Stones’ album Between the Buttons, and was also released there as a single. However, due to the-then controversial nature of the lyrics (proposing a sexual encounter) most radio stations opted to play the flip side “Ruby Tuesday” instead.[1] The two songs charted separately on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, “Let’s Spend the Night Together” stalling at #55 while “Ruby Tuesday” became a #1 hit. Both “Ruby Tuesday” and “Let’s Spend the Night Together” feature piano by Jack Nitzsche.

This single and its flipside would be the final Stones recordings receiving a production credit for band manager Andrew Loog Oldham.The song is a droning Moroccan influenced anthem of defiance. Outwardly, it was a message from the band to its fans, expressing appreciation for support in the wake of their recent drug busts. It was also an ironic, tongue in cheek slap in the faces of the police harrassing them and the Stones’ true feelings about it, putting on a cooperative and friendly face while inside they were seething with anger and indignation (as is represented by Brian Jones’ unforgettably surreal Mellotron in the background). “We Love You” is a psychedelic collage of jail sounds, Nicky Hopkins’ foreboding piano riff, and otherworldly tape delayed vocal effects, featuring a visiting John Lennon and Paul McCartney on high harmonies.

This was also a “Thank You” to The Beatles, The Who and the editorial page of the London Times, who supported and spoke out in favor of the Stones after Jagger, Richards and Jones were arrested on drug charges. The Who recorded and released a double A-side of the Stones’ “The Last Time” and “Under My Thumb” to keep the Stones’ music alive while they were going through their court and prison difficulties.

This was one of the first songs The Stones produced without manager Andrew Loog Oldham. They wanted to get rid of him, so they angered him away by going against his wishes in many aspects of Their Satanic Majesties Request. John, Paul, George and Ringo of The Beatles sang the "la-la-la" background vocal on this song. Nicky Hopkins played piano on this song. Hopkins, along with Ian Stewart and Billy Preston, played on Stones albums from Between The Buttons in 1967 until Black And Blue in 1976. Preston usually played on the more Gospel-sounding songs where an organ was required; Stewart played boogie-woogie on the fast songs, and Hopkins played on the ballads.
