(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction - Otis Redding

Otis Redding recorded a rendition of "Satisfaction" for his album Otis Blue, 1965. Otis claimed that he did not know the lyrics of the song, saying: "I use a lot of words different than the Stones' version," Redding noted. "That's because I made them up."Of that session, Steve Cropper said, "...if you ever listened to the record you can hardly understand the lyrics, right? I set down to a record player and copied down what I thought the lyrics were and I handed Otis a piece of paper and before we got through with the cut, he threw the paper on the floor and that was it." "Music writer Robert Christgau described it as an "anarchic reading" of the Stones' original. Redding's soul-style arrangement featured horns playing the main riff, as Keith Richards had originally intended. In 2003, Ronnie Wood noted that The Rolling Stones' later concert renditions of the number reflect Redding's interpretation. Lyrics: I can get no satisfaction I can get no satisfaction I have tried, I have tried I have tried, I have tried I can't get me no more, oh Lord And I can't get no more, oh Lord When I'm driving in my car And the man talks on the radio He keep tellin' me more and more About that useless information He's tryin' to mess up my imagination And I can't get me no more, oh Lord And I can't Hey, hey, hey, gotta, gotta, gotta, we gotta groove We gotta have it, gotta, we gotta have it, gotta, we gotta have it Keep on grooving, keep on grooving Keep on grooving [Incomprehensible] yeah I can get no satisfaction I can get no satisfaction I have tried, I have tried I have tried, God, I have tried, tried, tried I can't get no, oh Lord And I can't get me no, oh no Lord Best you gotta keep on movin', rollin' now Keep on rocking, rocking, baby yeah Gotta, gotta have it, you gotta Gotta won't you wait for time This little girl is tryin' to put me down I keep on walkin' 'round in my sleep Keep on messin' up any beat Keep on tryin' to find me somebody Somebody to love me, give me some reaction I cannot find nobody, oh no, nobody Give me no faction, faction, faction We gotta have it satisfaction We got to have it satisfaction Earlier in the morning want satisfaction Later in the evening want satisfaction Break it down Give it to me, let me have it Give me some, want me some Give it to me, let me have me some, faction Give it to me, faction, give me some, faction Got a satisfaction, you gotta get it, satisfaction [Incomprehensible] satisfaction, you gotta get it, satisfaction [Incomprehensible] satisfaction, you got satisfaction Give it to me, satisfaction, got to satisfy Got to satisfy, got to satisfy Gotta, gotta, gotta Gotta, gotta, gotta Gotta, gotta, gotta Gotta, gotta

The Rolling Stones' Gorilla Marketing
The Stones have never been normal, and that's why we idolize them, but what the hell is this marketing campaign? The group is releasing a greatest hits album this November called GRRR! which has a gorilla sporting the iconic Rolling Stones lips all over the album. In order to promote this release, they've teamed up with Aurasma and Universal Music's app uView to create a (totally weird) 3D Gorilla experience for Stones fans around the world. The idea itself is pretty cool. In certain locations such as Big Ben, Tokyo Tower, or the Empire State Building (3,000 locations in 50 cities around the world total) users who downloaded the app can hold their phones up to the noted location and see gorillas jump around in front of their eyes. Not really sure what this has to do with a greatest hits album, but its unique at least. Along with watching the animated gorillas you can use the app to pre-order the album and take photos to enter competitions. One big 'oops,' has been the fact that the #GRRR tag on Twitter has not become a place to tweet photos of the events like Universal Music was hoping. Instead it has become a place for animal rights activists to talk about the grievances of real-life gorillas, and more power to them! Activists argue that there are only 720 mountain gorillas left in the world, and the Rolling Stones are missing a big opportunity to help out this cause. One article explains that "it be GRRReat! if the Rolling Stones promoted donating to save real gorillas while using virtual gorillas to plug their new album in order to make a real impact by using their massive clout and influence for more than just selling albums." Ho hum, either way this is not the best campaign I've ever seen, but they're certainly going to be selling a few albums regardless.
