1960's Hit Songs


With the band forming in 1962, in London during the height of the music scene, the Rolling Stones and the way they could string together lyrics and chorus are well known around the World for most of their songs. The original members of the Rolling Stones -- Mick Jagger, Keith Richard, Brian Jones, Ian Stewart, Charlie Watts and Bill Wyman -- devoted much of their time to their music craft and it showed in the songs and albums that were released, not to mention in the energy they possessed while touring.

Initially, after the band's inception, they did many cover songs of the various music icons of the time, including, Chuck Berry, Buddy Holly and Bobby and Shirley Womack, to name a few.

It was these cover tunes that the Rolling Stones toured with that helped them hone their stage presence in order to perform a great show. Considering they spent most of the time on tour, they really had quite a bit of practice at it. It was not until the mid 1960's that the Rolling Stones began cranking out their own music on a regular basis and, in the process, began to move away from the cover song. The had several 1960's hit songs, with their first being a tune written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richard called "The Last Time", which reached number 1.

Additional 1960's hit songs included -- arguably the most well known Rolling Stones song ever written, sang and recorded -- "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction". This song was recorded during a North America tour of the United States and almost instantly made the Rolling Stones an International sensation. After the release of "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction", there was no stopping the Rolling Stones, or their songs, from being at the top of the charts for weeks on end.

This honor also included many of the Rolling Stones albums as well, such as "Out of Our Heads" which was the Rolling Stones first platinum album thanks to the success of "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction".

From there, the sky seemed to be the limit for the Rolling Stones. Some of their more popular and widely known songs -- that were 1960's hit songs -- include "Paint it Black", "19th Nervous Breakdown", "Going Home", and "Mother's Little Helper", to name a few. It was clear by this time that the Rolling Stones were on to something huge, little did they know then that it would last for 40+ years.
