Missed that? I did! (and I’ll make it up to you) Thank you for this wonderful week, for your beautiful comments! I hope you’re ready to have your most amazing weekend yet!
With no melancholy (ok, maybe just a bit), in a true vintage spirit, here’s the Rolling Stones with As Tears Go By from the sixties! And if you enjoyed that (and a bit of sing-along while admiring Mick Jagger’s determination to perform while sitting in just one place for the entire two minutes and half), then please consider Marianne Faithfull’s version, right after the jump! (and more)
Though the original title of the song was “As time goes by” and it was entrusted to Marianne Faithfull (1964), this wonderful piece was actually written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. The song came out as a success and the Stones played it over and over due to popular demand. In the mean time, the title was changed into “As tears go by” (because the previous title was already attributed to a known song from Casablanca).
Covered by the grands of music (Nancy Sinatra, Vanessa Paradis), this piece remains one of the most successful slows ever to be issued by the Rolling Stones. (true, rumors say it was inspired by the Beatles’ Yesterday, but who are we to judge? We’re here to enjoy music, right?)
