No. 22: ‘It’s All Over Now’ – Top 100 Rolling Stones Songs
R&B favorite Bobby Womack co-wrote 'It's All Over Now' with Shirley Womack for his project, the Valentinos featuring Bobby Womack. It barely registered in the Top 100, peaking at No. 94. But the Rolling Stones took a stab at it in 1964 and enjoyed their first No. 1 hit with the track.
The band heard the original after New York DJ Murray the K played it for them, and they liked it so much they jumped into a studio nine days later to record their own version. Womack initially denied them permission to record the track until his manager convinced him otherwise. After seeing the first royalty check roll in, he told his manager that Mick Jagger could have any song he wanted.
