"BROWN SUGAR" - THE ROLLING STONES
As rock 'n roll's original bad reputation, opposing The Beatles' with raggedy hair and edgy appearances, The Rolling Stones came to fruition in 1962 at the legendary Marquee Club in London before the original line-up of Brian Jones, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Bill Wyman, and Charlie Watts was established. The Rolling Stones contributed to the "British Invasion" as they rose to international fame in 1964 and laid the blueprint for '60s counterculture immersed in sex, drugs, and rock 'n roll. "Brown Sugar" was the lead single from the band's first No.1 album in the US, Sticky Fingers (1971), well known for it's suggestive cover art by Andy Warhol featuring a functional jean zipper--and was debuted live during the infamous concert at Altamont Speedway amongst a security team of Hells Angels in 1969. The lyrics were taboo referring primarily to interracial affairs; African-American icons Marsha Hunt and Claudia Lennear claimed to be Jagger's muse. It's raunchy, it's catchy, it's definitive of the world's greatest rock 'n roll band.
