Score: #2 in the UK and in the US

Mick Jagger
: “A song about things that are happening around me ,
everyday life as I see it. People say I’m always singing about pills and
breakdowns, therefore I must be an addict – this is ridiculous. Some
people are so narrow-minded they won’t admit to themselves that
this really does happen to other people besides pop stars.”

You better stop, look around
Here it comes, here it comes, here it comes, here it comes
Here comes your nineteenth nervous breakdown

Awesome Historic Live Album ‘GET YER YA-YA’S OUT!’ By THE ROLLING STONES Released 50 Years Ago

4 September 2020

Band: The Rolling Stones
Album: Get Your Ya-Ya’s Out!
Released: 4 September 1970 – 50 years ago today

Keyline: “Everybody ready? The greatest band in the world… The Rolling Stones!”
From the spoken introduction on the opening track ‘Jumpin’ Jack Flash’

The late great Lester Bangs wrote back then in Rolling Stone Magazine: “The Rolling Stones are most assuredly not in trouble, and are looking like an even greater force in the
years ahead than they have been. It’s still too soon to tell, but I’m beginning to think Ya-Ya’s
just might be the best album they ever made. I have no doubt that it’s the best rock concert
ever put on record. The Stones, alone among their generation of groups, are not about to fall
by the wayside. And as long as they continue to thrive this way, the era of true rock and roll music will remain alive and kicking with them.”
