The Rolling Stones Song of the Day is Long Long While. Long Long While a song written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards was the b-side to Paint It Black. This song-while good enough had to have been left off of Aftermath- due to not fitting into the themes of the album. This is a rare Jagger-Richards song in which the male accepts the error of his ways. A great vocal performance by Mick- who seems to have learned something from studying the master soul singers. Long Long While didn’t make an album appearance in the USA until More Hot Rocks in the early 1970’s.
