This was going to be very straight but it's ended up donging about all over the place. All tinkling and weird. Charlie said he wanted to think up a weird drum rhythm for it and brought about two dozen different drums into the studio. This has been covered by someone else - the way I originally saw it.
I think the first song I wrote melodically was Yesterday's Papers.
(T)he first song I ever wrote completely on my own for a Rolling Stones record.
