It is undoubtedly one of the best songs in the history of Universal music, considered within the top 5 in all history “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” is a clear example of the reflection in the world of the 60’s, the hopes of his generation and the stoicism of the time.
“(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” is a portrait of a teenager racked by a general frustration. It is considered by critics as the best recording of the band and one of the best in contemporary music.
Richards wrote “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” in his sleep and recorded a rough version of the guitar riff on a cassette player.
