No. 11: ‘Get Off Of My Cloud’ – Top 100 Rolling Stones Songs

mfpsolutions.blogspot.com

The Rolling Stones‘ 1965 single ‘Get Off Of My Cloud’ had a contrary lyrical bent which appealed to their teenage fanbase.

As Mick Jagger admitted to Rolling Stone in 1995, that was the whole point. “It’s a stop-bugging-me, post-teenage-alienation song. The grown-up world was a very ordered society in the early ’60s, and I was coming out of it. America was even more ordered than anywhere else. I found it was a very restrictive society in thought and behavior and dress.”

Paradoxically, ‘Get Off Of My Cloud’ had a very of-its-time sound, channeling the R&B-influenced early rock & roll the band loved so much with simplistic guitar chords and rollicking drums.
