Mother's Little Helper- Rolling Stones (fav songs)

|This hit by The Rolling Stones peaked at Number 8 in 1966. It's a fast-moving, rollicking song, and I think a cool counterpoint to the subject matter; you'd probably imagine most groups writing a slower, more drugged-out pace of a song.|
Mick Jagger commented that, "It's about drug dependence, but in a sort of like spoofy way. As a songwriter, I didn't really think about addressing things like that. It was just everyday stuff that I'd observe and write about. It's what writing is for really. There is a sort of naivete, but there's also a lot of humor in those songs. They're a lot based on humor. It was almost like a different band, a different world, a different view when we wrote them ...I get inspiration from things that are happening around me - everyday life as I see it. People say I'm always singing about pills and breakdowns, therefore I must be an addict - this is ridiculous. Some people are so narrow-minded they won't admit to themselves that this really does happen to other people besides pop stars."
