The Rolling Stones Song of the Day is- Shine A Light- the 3rd song and penultimate song on Exile On Main St. While it is credited as a Mick Jagger -Keith Richards song the song was mainly written by Mick and Leon Russell. Mick had begun writing the song back in 1969 with founder Brian Jones was still in the band and struggling with drug addiction- the original title was Get A Line On You and dealt with Jones fading away act. Leon Russell recorded it in 1970 with Stones backing him but it was never released at the time.  The Rolling Stones version had producer Jimmy Miller on drums instead of Charlie and Mick Taylor on electric and bass guitars. This is another song that Allen Klein the shark sued them over since it was written when their songs were still with his publishing company. One of my favorite songs on the album.
