Paint it Black
I love this song. It's probably one of the darkest songs ever written.
But no way is this a Jagger/Richards song.
Like most of the Rolling Stone's hits from this era it has Brian Jones written all over it. One of the, or maybe just the, world's greatest rock musician(s) and songwriter(s).
“It's not easy facing up when your whole world is black No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue I could not foresee this thing happening to you If I look hard enough into the setting sun My love will laugh with me before the morning comes”
Love those last two lines. Jagger & Richards still havn't figured out what they mean. Their idiocy it seems is in equal measure to their thieving.
Keith Richards – “Brian Jones wrote Paint it Black, dig?”
P.S. I must have been thinking of the colour of oil...
