No. 53: ‘Out of Time’ – Top 100 Rolling Stones Songs

Rolling Stones
Decca Records

What was going on in the Rolling Stones‘ personal lives in early 1966? Admittedly they had never displayed a particularly enlightened attitude toward women, but ‘Aftermath’ contains three songs of outright contempt: ‘Stupid Girl,’ ‘Under My Thumb’ and ‘Out of Time.’

Opening with some bass, finger snaps and Brian Jones‘ marimba, ‘Out of Time’ is a kiss-off to a woman who wants back in after having dumped him for another guy. Maybe it’s a bit of macho bravado for Mick Jagger to get the upper hand, but calling her “obsolete” and his “poor, discarded baby” is deliciously nasty.
