You Got Me Rocking

Album: Voodoo Lounge (1994)
Charted: 23
  • Keith Richards: "I wrote it on piano. It's sort of like a Little Richard thing. And then when I took it to guitar I really got interested in it. Because before that I was really doing a parody of something like rock and roll piano music. But then it sort of went Celtic on me. Some of these strange drone notes. And it sort of took on another life. And then Charlie got into it with this little go-go beat - this great tom tom bit - and I'm a sucker for that, man. You give me that, especially with Charlie Watts playing it. It was a heavy-duty jungle thing." >>

  • Ashley from Quincy, IlI don't see why people hate this song.one day I was in class and my teacher had his ipod on and this song came on I was going to have a cow because he's a beatles fan. I thought I was the only one in my school that liked them cause I'm only in junior high and you know the music today.
  • Patrick from Greenville, Sca lot of stones fans seem to hate this. I think because it was made in '94 instead of '74. I think it's one of Keith's all-time great riffs.
  • Ethan from Portland, Orthough i must admit, many rolling stones fans hate this song . . .
  • Sam from Shanghai, ChinaGreat guitar solo
  • Ethan from Portland, Orthis never fails to get me rocking
