Song profile

The song was written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. Mick Jagger produced a version for Chris Farlowe, a fellow Immediate artist.[2] It is distinctively known for its different versions. The first version appeared on the UK version of 1966's Aftermath and featured a marimba part played by Brian Jones. The song was 5:37 long. Then it appeared in the US on 1967's Flowers as a shorter version. It then appeared on the 1975 ABKCO compilation album Metamorphosis. This version was, in fact, the backing track from the Chris Farlowe version, only with a Mick Jagger lead vocal. It was also released as a single, reaching #45 in the UK.

Cover versions

  • In 1987 Yugoslav rock band Električni Orgazam recorded a version with lyrics in Serbian language entitled "Bejbe, ti nisi tu" ("Baby, You Are Not Here") and released it as a single. The band performed the song in 2007 when they were the opening act for the Rolling Stones in Belgrade.
  • The song was covered by the Welsh rock band Manic Street Preachers (appearing on their B-sides and covers album Lipstick Traces (2003) and the charity album NME In Association With War Child Presents 1 Love) (2002)
  • Dan McCafferty of Nazareth recorded a version on his first, self-titled solo album. It was released as a single in 1975 shortly before the album and reached No. 41, despite competition from a reissue of the Chris Farlowe version and a first-time single release of the Metamorphosis version, inaccurately credited to the Rolling Stones, as Mick Jagger was the only group member featured. These two later versions reached No. 44 and No. 45 respectively.
  • The Ramones did a version which appeared on their cover album Acid Eaters.
  • Jimmy Barnes and Tim Rogers recorded their own versions in 2005.
  • (Frank) Carillo recorded the song on his 1979 album Street of Dreams.
  • The 101'ers album Elgin Avenue Breakdown Revisited has a live recording of the song.
  • Giuliano Palma & the Bluebeaters did a ska/reggae version on their live album The Wonderful Live (2001).
  • Virve Rosti did a Finnish version "Oot Ilmaa Vaan".
  • Del Shannon covered this song in 1981. It is on his CDs "25 All-Time Greatest Hits" and "Drop Down And Get Me".
  • In 1966 The Bee Gees did a cover of the song. Robin Gibb sang the lead vocals on this song. They performed this on Australian television.
