No. 15: ‘Happy’ – Top 100 Rolling Stones Songs

Rolling Stones / Atlantic

Mick Jagger is typically the frontman for the Rolling Stones, but he took a backseat for the track ‘Happy,’ which was sung by Keith Richards. The song was released in 1972 on the ‘Exile on Main Street’ album.

Richards recalls that it was one of the easiest pieces to create, explaining, “We did it in an afternoon, four hours, cut and done. At noon it had never existed.” It’s since remained a favorite in the Stones’ live catalog, with the guitarist getting a chance to step up to the mic while Jagger takes a well-deserved break.
