THE ROLLING STONES topped the UK Singles Chart
with PAINT IT, BLACK 55 years ago today, on
26 May 1966.
A haunting, dark, and ominous masterstroke. The Stones
at their very mystical best. It also hit the top spot in the US
and several countries in Europe.
I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colors anymore I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes…
