Rock Chronology #113: You Can’t Always Get What You Want


“You Can’t Always Get What You Want”, The Rolling Stones, 1969.

One of the greatest Rock bands ever, The Rolling Stones, continues in top form on this song from their Let It Bleed album. The album peaked at #1 in the UK and #3 in the US. However I was surprised to find that this song was originally not released as a single. It was originally just a B-Side to “Honkey Tonk Women”. Eventually they did release this as its own single in 1973, but the timing was about four years too late at that point (peaking at #42 in the US). Regardless, it is a timeless song.
