Dig Out A Yummy Throwback To When The Rolling Stones Debuted Legendary Ear-Worm Song ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want’ Circa 1968!

Dig Out a yummy throwback to when The Rolling Stones debuted their legendary ear-worm of a song ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want’, circa 1968!

"The Rolling Stones went into 2020 thinking they’d once again be playing to sold-out football stadiums across North America on their ongoing No Filter tour. It’s still theoretically possible that they’ll find a way to squeeze in those dates before the end of the year, but it’s far more likely that they’ll have to wait until 2021 or even 2022 to play make-up shows.

Fans did get a brief chance to see the Stones play live over the weekend when they appeared at Global Citizen’s “One World: Together at Home” event. They performed “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” from their separate homes, though Charlie Watts seemed to be playing air drums, confusing many fans. (A rep for the Stones declined to comment on what was actually going on with Watts’ performance.) The song was a logical choice for the occasion since so many people aren’t getting what they want during the global COVID-19 shutdown.

“You Can’t Always Get What You Want” appeared on Beggar’s Banquet in 1968 and has been a staple of their live shows since the Exile on Main Street tour in 1972. They’ve played it a grand total of 754 times, more than any other song in their catalog besides “Jumpin’ Jack Flash,” “Brown Sugar,” “Honky Tonk Women,” “Tumbling Dice,” “Satisfaction,” “Start Me Up,” “Sympathy for the Devil,” and “It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll (But I Like It).”
