Rolling Stones – Brown Sugar – 1971 ( In the Rolling Stone interview (December 14, 1995, RS 723) with Mick Jagger, Jagger spoke at length about the song, including claiming credit writing the lyrics for the entire song, the inspiration and success of the song. He attributed the success of the song to a “good groove”. After noting that the lyrics meant so many lewd subjects, he again noted that the combination of those subjects, and the lyrics ambiguousness was partially why the song was considered successful. He noted, “That makes it…the whole mess thrown in. God knows what I’m on about on that song. It’s such a mishmash. All the nasty subjects in one go….I never would write that song now.”.Well Mick, pink suit and all, we’re glad you did!
