Live Covers #11: Marianne Faithfull - As Tears Go By

Marianne Faithfull - As Tears Go By (1965)

The song is considered to be the first original composition by Jagger and Richards. Up until that point they had been performing covers of blues standards. The myth surrounding the song's genesis has it that Rolling Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham locked Jagger and Richards in a kitchen forcing them to write a song together, even suggesting what type of song he wanted: “I want a song with brick walls all around it, high windows and no sex.” (Wikipedia, As Tears Go By)
