The Rolling Stones – It’s Only Rock ‘N’ Roll

The Rolling Stones - It's Only Rock 'N' Roll (But I Like It) - OFFICIAL PROMO

Piesa a fost primul single de pe albumul It’s Only Rock ‘n Roll, al 12-lea in UK si al 14-lea album de studio in America. Albumul a ajuns pe primul loc in America si pe la doilea in Marea Britanie.
Acest album este punct de referinta, pentru ca este primul lor album pe care l-au produs singuri, producatori fiind Keith Richards si Mick Jagger, sub pseudpnimul “The Glimmer Twins”.

Aceasta este una din ultimele aparitii ale lui Mick Taylor, alaturi de Rolling Stones, el parasind grupul in Decembrie (1974). Ronnie Wood care nu apare in video, a cantat la chitara acustica impreuna cu Keith Richards la chitara electrica.

In aceea vreme erau mereu criticati, ca piesele lor noi, nu mai au aceiasi calitate ca albumele precedente. Versurile sant raspunsul lor direct adresat acelor critici.
Si bineinteles, acum este un “clasic”.

O piatra – cat o minge de golf –  de pe Marte a fost numita de NASA “Rolling Stone“.

Versuri:
If I could stick my pen in my heart
And spill it all over the stage
Would it satisfy ya, would it slide on by ya
Would you think the boy is strange?
Ain’t he strange?

If I could win ya, if I could sing ya
A love song so divine
Would it be enough for your cheating heart
If I broke down and cried?
If I cried?

I said I know it’s only rock ‘n’ roll but I like it
I know it’s only rock ‘n’ roll but I like it, like it, yes, I do
Oh, well, I like it, I like it, I like it
I said can’t you see that this old boy has been a lonely?

If I could stick a knife in my heart
Suicide right on stage
Would it be enough for your teenage lust
Would it help to ease the pain?
Ease your brain?

If I could dig down deep in my heart
Feelings would flood on the page
Would it satisfy ya, would it slide on by ya
Would ya think the boy’s insane?
He’s insane

I said I know it’s only rock ‘n’ roll but I like it
I said I know it’s only rock’n roll but I like it, like it, yes, I do
Oh, well, I like it, yeah, I like it, I like it
I said can’t you see that this old boy has been a lonely?

And do ya think that you’re the only girl around?
I bet you think that you’re the only woman in town, ah, ooh yeah
