No. 73: ‘Just My Imagination’ – Top 100 Rolling Stones Songs
This song is so rock and roll we almost always forget it was originally done by the Temptations. 'Just My Imagination' has been covered by a myriad of groups, but among the most notable is the version by the Rolling Stones -- not that we're surprised.
The track appeared on the 1978 album 'Some Girls' and featured a rough rock and roll feel that was completely nonexistent in the original Temptations tune. The electric guitars added swag and the faster tone caused a spring in our step we never saw coming, even considering how important rhythm and blues were and remain to the Stones throughout their long career.
