The Song Stuck In My Head (And Why): “YOU CAN’T ALWAYS GET WHAT YOU WANT” by The ROLLING STONES (1969)

“…I Saw Her Today

At

The Reception

In Her Glass

Was

A Bleeding Man

She Was Practiced

At The Art

Of Deception

Well

I Could Tell

By Her

Blood-Stained Hands

(Sing It)…”

Oddly, My Peeps…

…I Wasn’t Even Listening To This Song…

YOU CAN’T ALWAYS GET WHAT YOU WANT

by The ROLLING STONES

…When It Became Stuck In My Head.

I Was Actually Thinking About Family And Friends.

I Was Thinking About How Some Are True Gems…

…Not To Be Traded For Anyone, Nor Anything.

And I Was Thinking About How Some Treat Me As If I’d Traded Them Away Years Ago And They Came Back Into The Fold Embittered And Royally Pissed-Off.

Honestly…

…It’s VERY Hard For Me To Make Friends…

…And Family Associations Are Just As Difficult.

I’m A Very Trusting Individual When It Comes To Those Whom I’ve Known Longest…

…And Perhaps Too Trusting With Those I Haven’t Known So Long.

I Try Hard To Give Everyone A Fair-Shake…

…Knowing That Doing So Is The Only Real Way To Evaluate A Relationship.

If You Can’t Trust The Person…

…It’s VERY VERY Hard To Maintain The Relationship.

All I Ever Ask Is That My Friends Let Me Know They’re Still Alive…

…Especially When It Has Been A While Since Our Last Contact…

…And…

…DON’T IGNORE ME!

Some Of My Peeps Stay Very Busy…

…Either With Work, Or Their Families, Or Whatever.

That’s Just Life, So It’s No Worries.

BUT…

…When I Know For A Fact They Have Nothing Going On, Nor Will Have Anything Happening Anytime Soon…

…And I Get Blatantly Ignored By Them…

…I Tend To Get Rather Pissy.

However…

…As One Friend Reminded Me Last Night…

…Life’s Too Short To Be Constantly Pissy In Regard To That Simple Failing.

I Kept Thinking And Thinking And Thinking About That, All Night Long.

Then I Said To Myself…

"Well... Can't Always Get What We Want, Right?!"

…And That Was All It Took.

I Then Spent The Bulk Of Last Night Humming And Singing…

YOU CAN’T ALWAYS GET WHAT YOU WANT

…To Myself.

I Even Went To Bed Thinking About It.

When I Awoke This Morning…

…The Song Was Still Rollin’ Around In My Brain.

So I Decided To Listen To It.

Once.

Twice.

Thrice.

Yeah…

…THREE (3) TIMES.

Back-To-Back-To-Back.

And Then…

…In Sitting Down At My Computer To Check The Email…

…I Quickly Decided I Wanted To Blog About This.

I Love This Song.

It’s My 2ND Favorite Song, Period, By…

The ROLLING STONES

…And It’s A True Classic-Among-Classics.

It Has The Power To Make Me Smile…

…And I Find That Comforting.

I Hate It Hate It HATE IT When I Get Pissy With Family And Friends.

Mainly Because I Know I Shouldn’t.

Everyone Has A Life To Live, And I Can’t Expect To Be Part Of It All.

But, It’s VERY Hard For Me To Just Shut-Up And Take Anything…

…Regardless Of What The Anything May Be.

Being Ignored, To Me, Is Worse Than Any Physical Pain One Might Try To Inflict Upon Me.

It Always Has Been.

Perhaps That’s Just My ADHD Bleeding Through…

…But I Can’t Help It.

Yet…

…All It Took To Calm Me Down And Lift My Spirits…

…Was The Words Of A Friend…

…And A Wonderfully AMAZING Song!

I Find That VERY Fitting.

Wouldn’t You?!

SURE YOU WOULD!!!

  1. Certainly is a classic.
    The A side, of the single was Honky Tonk Women. I spent a week’s allowance pumping sixpences in a jukebox to listen to it!
    Got hell for it as well!
    Saw the Stones twice. Kings Hall Manchester, England 1973 (still have the tour poster on my office wall) and Ellis Park , South Africa, during the Voodoo Lounge tour. Took my kids!
    The Stones have been around a bit have they not?
    Thanks for visiting my spot.

      • They were supposed to be doing a 50th anniversary tour (2012) but Charlie didn’t feel like it. Read somewhere else that it might be on next year, and Bill Wyman might just come on board.
        I queued for eight hours for tickets the last time, think I might queue for eight days if they came back to Johannesburg – no, hang on. Come to think of it I’d make my kids queue instead this time! πŸ™‚
