Tell Me (You're Coming Back) by The Rolling Stones

Album: The Rolling StonesReleased: 1964Charted:
24
  • I want you back again
    I want your love again
    I know you find it hard to reason with me
    But this time it's different, darling you'll see

    You gotta tell me you're coming back to me
    You gotta tell me you're coming back to me
    You gotta tell me you're coming back to me
    You gotta tell me you're coming back to me

    You said we're through before
    You walked out on me before
    I tried to tell you, but you didn't want to know
    This time you're different and determined to go

    You gotta tell me you're coming back to me
    You gotta tell me you're coming back to me
    You gotta tell me you're coming back to me
    You gotta tell me you're coming back to me

    I wait as the days go by
    I long for the nights to go by
    I hear the knock on my door that never comes
    I hear the telephone that hasn't rung

    You gotta tell me you're coming back to me
    You gotta tell me you're coming back to me
    You gotta tell me you're coming back to me
    You gotta tell me you're coming back to me

I like everything about this song. It's gritty and unpolished, just like the Stones were then.

Barry, also in '64, "Tell Me Why" by the Beatles was released as part of the "A Hard Day's Night" album, which obviously topped the album charts.

On June 28th 1964, "Tell Me (You're Coming Back)" by the Rolling Stones entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart at position #81; and August 2nd, 1964 it peaked at #24 (for 2 weeks) and spent 10 weeks on the Top 100...
It reached #11 in the Netherlands...
Also in 1964, three other songs with 'Tell Me' in their titles made the Top 100; "Tell Me Why" by Bobby Vinton (#13), "Tell Me Baby" by Garnet Mimms (#69), and "Tell Me Mamma" (#85).

I love this song the words are fantastic. It gives one a true feeling as though it's just happening now, no one can write words like this any more. No worder the '60s were the best years for groups, songs and fashion. It was a fabulous time then - thanks Rolling Stones.Roxy - Cheshire, United Kingdom
Kathy, AL------I kind of know what you mean, but by the same token, the rough, rawness of it is the thing that makes it a good song. it was actually one of my early faves of theirs for a long time.Sam - Hipsville, Ca
This is the first song they ever wrote that they recorded and it would have been better off done by the Beatles it's more their style.Anne - York , England
This song is so off key, it's pitiful, mainly the chorus!Kathy - Jasper, Al
