Rolling Stones Brown Sugar

“God knows what I’m (going) on about in that song,” Mick Jagger says of ‘Brown Sugar,’ one of the Rolling Stones‘ most popular anthems of all time. Well, let us help you out, buddy. The subjects covered on the opening track from 1971′s ‘Sticky Fingers’ includes oral sex, heroin, slavery and quite possibly rape all turn up at one point or another. As Jagger told Rolling Stone magazine in 1995, “I never would write that song now. I would probably censor myself. I’d think, ‘Oh God, I can’t. I’ve got to stop. I cant just write raw like that.”

We’ll leave it to you to decide whether that’s a good or a bad thing. At the very least, we’re glad he’s still willing to perform it live.
