100 Great Songs From The British Invasion: 1963-1966. 19th Nervous Breakdown- The Rolling Stones. Recorded ’19th Nervous Breakdown’ at RCA Studios in Hollywood, California in late 1965- and it was released as a single in February 1966. The song started out when Mick came up with the title and then wrote around it. While the single was a huge success in both the US and UK- reaching #2 in both charts- it ended a streak of five straight #1’s in the UK which started back in the summer of 1964-‘It’s All Over Now’, ‘Little Red Rooster’, ‘The Last Time’, ‘Satisfaction’ and ‘Get Off Of My Cloud.’ By 1966 The Rolling Stones were well established in the US as hit makers in the US after ‘Satisfaction.’ My favorite part of this song is- Bill Wyman’s ‘dive-bombing’ bass at the end of the song.
