The Rolling Stones release ‘Satisfaction’ in 1965

June 6, 2019

(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” is a song by  The Rolling Stones, released in 1965. It was written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards and produced by Andrew Loog Oldham. Richards’ five-note guitar riff—‌intended to be replaced by horns—‌opens and drives the song.

Keith Richards wrote “Satisfaction” in his sleep and recorded a rough version of the riff on a Philips cassette player. He had no idea he had written it. He said when he listened to the recording in the morning, there was about two minutes of acoustic guitar before you could hear him drop the pick and “then me snoring for the next forty minutes”.

The song is found on the North American version of the Rolling Stones’ fourth studio album, Out of Our Heads.
