Around And Around

  • I said the joint was rockin'
    A goin' round and round
    Yeah, reelin' and a rockin'
    What a crazy sound
    And they never stopped rockin'
    'Til the moon went down

    Well it sounds so sweet
    I had to take me a chance
    Rose out of my seat
    I just had to dance
    Started movin' my feet
    Whoa to clappin' my hands

    I said the joint was rockin'
    Goin' round and round
    Yeah, reelin' and a rockin'
    What a crazy sound
    And they never stopped rockin'
    'Til the moon went down

    Yeah at twelve o'clock
    Yeah the place was packed
    Front doors was locked
    Yeah the place was packed
    And when the police knocked
    Those doors flew back

    But they kept on rockin'
    Goin' round and round
    Yeah, reelin' and a rockin'
    What a crazy sound
    And they never stopped rockin'
    'Til the moon went down

    And they go on rockin'
    Goin' round and round
    Yeah, reelin' and a rockin'
    What a crazy sound
    And they never stopped rockin'
    'Til the moon went down

    Well the joint stayed a rockin'
    Goin' round and round
    Yeah, reelin' and a rockin'
    What a crazy sound
    And they never stopped rockin'

  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn October 25th 1964, the Rolling Stones performed "Around and Around" and "Time Is On My Side" on the CBS-TV program 'The Ed Sullivan Show'...
    As stated above, Mr. Sullivan promised that the quintet would never be invited back, due to screaming fans ripping up the studio’s seats...
    But the group made five more appearances on the show between 1965 and 1969.
  • Steve Dotstar from Los Angeles, Caa very good performance by the stones...epitome of their early sound, which I like very much.
  • Jon from Great Yarmouth, United KingdomWhen the whole band is playing flat out towards the end, to me, this IS the Rolling Stones. I would love them to record another album of R&B and R&R classics, played like they played in'64.
  • Josh from TorontoOf course Chuck Berry's version is completely amazing, but Rolling Stones do it better than anyone 'cept him.

    HAIL HAIL ROCK AND ROLL!
  • R from Montreal, Qc, CanadaCover up of Chuck Berry.
    Sounds really good. I don't think that any other bands can play Chuck Berry like the Stones.
    The reason is simple: Keith was sleeping with Chuck Berry records ...
    Listen to the Animals version of this one and you will understand the difference between the Stones and the other.
  • Alan from Grande Prairie, Alberta, CanadaFirst cut, first side Stones 12X5 album release.
  • Barry from New York, NcThe Grateful Dead was another band that covered this tune. Bob Weir sang lead, and it was usually a second set closer. My favorite version of AROUND AND AROUND is from Spartan Stadium on April 22, 1979.
  • Mr. Chimp from Brno, Czech RepublicIan Stewart played the piano on this.
  • Chelsea from Nyc, OrWas played at the famous El Mocambo show in 1977 and ended up on the "Club" side of the Love You Live album.
