The Rolling Stones were on a roll in 1967, as they kicked off the year with their new single 'Let's Spend the Night Together.' The Jagger/Richards team penned the classic, which featured both Keith Richards and Jack Nitzsche playing piano.

The song was met with a bit of controversy upon its release. Some U.S. radio stations shied away from it due to the lyrical content about casual sex. They chose to play the b-side, 'Ruby Tuesday,' instead, and the band's appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show was threatened unless they chose a different track. Eventually, a compromise was reached where Jagger would sing "Let's spend some time together" instead of "Let's spend the night together."
