Never get tired of hearing this one!
For jeez sake, in the album cover photo Richards still had acne.  
The greatest rock-n-roll song of all time.

Great forecasting and sense of humour.
There should be an 11 for this rock gem!

Transcendental & classic......

The Rolling Stones - "Satisfaction" Live (1965)

This song started my record buying....1965 Everything lost in a flood....1990(sigh) Should have stored it above ground.

Sometimes I feel like I'm about the only person on the planet who simply cannot stand the Stones. But Mick Jagger gives me the CREEPS. Ewwwww.
i prefer the justine bateman version. (sorry, i'm a child of the 80's!)
finally! a rolling stones song i've never heard before!

I think that this song is as relevant today as it was then, and that is why it is one of the greatest rock and roll songs of all time. I am not a big fan of the stones in general, but this song socks me right in the gut. It's protest against crass consumerism is just so right on, to borrow a phrase from days gone by.

The riff and the way he plays it is totally ripped off from--I mean a tribute to--the great Memphis Horns playing behind all those Stax soul hits from Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett and the like. Otis returned the favor by covering this song.

Too bad there is not a current "play gap". Like forever. :rolleyes:
This may be the quintessential rock and roll song. I have never gotten tired of hearing it since that first time at Meadowbrook Park swimming pool, summer of 1967.

And you may like to catch Charlie Watts' own band (name escapes me: heard it on a flight and forgot to note it) doing a brassy funk version called Faction

This song meant something once. Not for me today. Turned off RP and tuned in to KCRW's music channel... I suppose it must be played, but I don't want to be around to hear it, eh?
I remember seeing these guys on the Ed Sullivan show. They performed "Ruby Tuesday". My heart has forever belonged to them, ever since....even though they are a bunch of grey-haired granddads, they STILL rock! always
This song is the definitive shout of Teen Angst!!! It's ageless!
never fails to charge me up. Even the obvious songs sound better on RP..
"...he can't be a man 'cause he doesn't smoke the same cigarettes as me..." Love that line! hard to believe that in the simpler times when this song was on the charts the phrase "trying to make some girl" was scandalous! Ha!

True. One of those songs that stands for rock 'n' roll.
This is another of those songs, like The Doors' "Light My Fire", that seemed to grab the imagination and wouldn't let go. It would be a hit today. BTW, seems four and half years between plays should be enough. :propeller:
Obviously it's a great song. But it's never been one of my faves. (I think it goes on too long, for one.) The Stones can be inconsistent but their great songs are great. It's one of rock's great songs but I think they have better and it's a bit overrated. That's my mixed message. It's an 8. p.s. Look at that there album cover...what a motley crew of gents...
Ha, I was just reading about all the RIAA nonsense and writing to my friends about it when this song came on. Nice! :D
timeless. it has been too long since this has been played -assuming it hasn't been played since May.
Played out.
No rock radio station respecting itself can do without it. Keith Richards once said that he hadn't known a greater honour than Otis Redding covering Satisfaction. In his biography he's telling that he dreamed the riff. The first (and last?) time that happened to him. He woke up, picked up the guitar, and.....'I can't get no......satisfaction.....' That night he was so tired, that he pushed the button, got the guitar and ran through the sequence once. On the tape you could hear him drop the pick and the rest of it, him, snoring. When they wanted it as a single he said, 'NO WAY!'. He found the song basic as hills and the guitar fuzz thing a bit of a gimmick.
OK, this one I disagree with... great song, I love it and the Stones (pre-"Some Girls" Stones that is) but I didn't (and don't) enjoy hearing it here on Radio Paradise. We have a local FM station that plays a lot of the rock oldies from the 70's, and this track is played at least 3 times a week.. it isn't what I expected, or hoped to hear on Radio Paradise... how about some obscure track buried deep on side two of their first album? Anything, just surprise me... that's what Radio Paradise is about, isn't it? Still, as long as it doesn't become a habit I'll let it pass, as if I had any say in the matter. ;) Cheers Jacques Radio Paradise: What Radio Could Have Been.

Woo-Hoo!!! Rock & Roll!! pbm 8^)
