THE ROLLING STONES SONG OF THE DAY– TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT

The Rolling Stones Song of the Day is Take It Or Leave It- a song written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards that appears on The Rolling Stones Aftermath album. Jagger and Richards wrote the song on the strong suggestion from manager Andrew Loog Oldham to do so.  Again like a number of songs on Aftermath it deals with the relationships between men and women. This is an odd Stones song- interesting but I can’t decide if I like it that much or not. Mick sounds resigned in his singing. Brian Jones plays the organ and Jack Nitzsche guests again on the harpsichord.  It doesn’t sound much like a Rolling Stones song. The song would be covered that year by The Searchers and reach #31 in April of 1966.
