Basically, we released everything in mono - up to Aftermath - because we always liked the mono sound on the original R&B records. You don't have that polarity you get with stereo, that spreads out the sound. With stereo you lose a lot of the guts of the sound. We liked the RAWNESS of mono back then. On 2-track you couldn't do much anyways. For one thing, it couldn't be released in stereo. The band was on one track, the vocals on the other, and you couldn't mix stereo on 2-track. In any case, in '64 stereo was just coming into use, it wasn't in people's homes until '66. Also, you couldn't mix a single other than mono at that time because if it was mixed in stereo and you played it on a mono machine the sound was not balanced.

19th Nervous Breakdown" is a song by the English rock and roll band The Rolling Stones.

Recorded between December 3 and 8 of 1965, the song talks of a difficult, spoiled girl who cannot appreciate life. It was released as a single on February 4 of 1966 and reached #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and in the UK Record Retailer chart. However, it hit #1 in the NME chart and the BBC's Pick of the Pops chart, both of which were more widely recognised in Britain at the time.
lyric
You're the kind of person You meet at certain dismal dull affairs. Center of a crowd, talking much too loud Running up and down the stairs. Well, it seems to me that you have seen too much in too few years. And though you've tried you just can't hide Your eyes are edged with tears. You better stop Look around Here it comes, here it comes, here it comes, here it comes Here comes your nine-teenth nervous breakdown. When you were a child You were treated kind But you were never brought up right. You were always spoiled with a thousand toys But still you cried all night. Your mother who neglected you Owes a million dollars tax. And your father's still perfecting ways of making sealing wax. You better stop, look around Here it comes, here it comes, here it comes, here it comes Here comes your nilne-teenth nervous breakdown. Oh, who's to blame, that girl's just insane. Well nothing I do don't seem to work, It only seems to make matters worse. Oh please. You were still in school When you had that fool Who really messed your mind. And after that you turned your back On treating people kind. On our first trip I tried so hard to rearrange your mind. But after while I realized you were disarranging mine. You better stop, look around Here it comes, here it comes, here it comes, here it comes Here comes your nine-teenth nervous breakdown. Here comes your nine-teenth nervous breakdown Here comes your nine-teenth nervous breakdown

The Rolling Stones wrote this as a much slower, conventional Soul song. When Bill Wyman began fooling around on the organ during the session doing a takeoff of their original as a spoof of music played at Jewish weddings. Co-manager Eric Easton (who had been an organist), and Charlie Watts joined in and improvised a double-time drum pattern, echoing the rhythm heard in some Middle Eastern dances. This new more upbeat rhythm was then used in the recording as a counterpoint to the morbid lyrics.
lyrics

I see a red door and I want it painted black No colors anymore I want them to turn black I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes I have to turn my head until my darkness goes I see a line of cars and they're all painted black With flowers and my love both never to come back I see people turn their heads and quickly look away Like a new born baby it just happens ev'ry day I look inside myself and see my heart is black I see my red door and it has been painted black Maybe then I'll fade away and not have to face the facts It's not easy facin' up when your whole world is black No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue I could not foresee this thing happening to you If I look hard enough into the settin' sun My love will laugh with me before the mornin' comes I see a red door and I want it painted black No colors anymore I want them to turn black I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes I have to turn my head until my darkness goes Hmm, hmm, hmm,... I wanna see it painted, painted black Black as night, black as coal I wanna see the sun blotted out from the sky I wanna see it painted, painted, painted, painted black Yeah!

The song was credited to Mick Jagger and Keith Richards although all of the bandmembers contributed substantially to it, especially Bill Wyman, and leader/founder Brian Jones.Jagger's and Richards' original conception of the song was that of a slow soul song from the viewpoint of a person who is depressed. He wants everything to turn black to match his mood

This is about a housewife who abuses prescription drugs to "get her through the day." It turns around the image of a suburban housewife, who is usually portrayed as cooking and caring for her family, by showing her as a drug abuser. The Stones could get away with this because their image was that of cynical, somewhat dangerous rockers.
Mick Jagger: "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 every day stuff that you I'd observe and write about. It's what writing is for really. There is a sort of naivety, 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."that of cynical, somewhat dangerous rockers.
lyric

What a drag it is getting old"Kids are different today,"I hear every mother sayMother needs something today to calm her downAnd though she's not really illThere's a little yellow pillShe goes running for the shelter of a mother's little helperAnd it helps her on her way, gets her through her busy day"Things are different today,"I hear every mother sayCooking fresh food for a husband's just a dragSo she buys an instant cake and she burns her frozen steakAnd goes running for the shelter of a mother's little helperAnd two help her on her way, get her through her busy dayDoctor please, some more of theseOutside the door, she took four moreWhat a drag it is getting old"Men just aren't the same today"I hear every mother sayThey just don't appreciate that you get tiredThey're so hard to satisfy, you can tranquilize your mindSo go running for the shelter of a mother's little helperAnd four help you through the night, help to minimize your plightDoctor please, some more of theseOutside the door, she took four moreWhat a drag it is getting old"Life's just much too hard today,"I hear every mother sayThe pursuit of happiness just seems a boreAnd if you take more of those, you will get an overdoseNo more running for the shelter of a mother's little helperThey just helped you on your way,
your busy dying day.

Have You Seen Your Mother, Baby, Standing in the Shadow?” is a song by the British rock ‘n roll band The Rolling Stones. It first appeared on their 1966 compilation album Big Hits (High Tide and Green Grass).Written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, the song was recorded in the late summer of 1966. It is famous for its horns arrangement (arranged by Mike Leander; this is the first Stones song to feature brass) and is one of the earliest songs to use feedback from the guitars. The Stones have said that they were unhappy with the final cut, bemoaning the loss of the original cut’s strong rhythm section
(Jagger/Richards)
lyric
Have you seen your mother, baby, standing in the shadow? Have you had another, baby, standing in the shadow? I'm glad I opened your eyes The have-nots would have tried to freeze you in ice Have you seen your brother, baby, standing in the shadow? Have you had another baby, standing in the shadow? I was just passing the time I'm all alone, won't you give all your sympathy to mine? Tell me a story about how you adore me Live in the shadow, see through the shadow, Live through the shadow, tear at the shadow Hate in the shadow, and love in your shadowy life Have you seen your lover, baby, standing in the shadow? Has he had another baby, standing in the shadow? Baby, where have you been all your life? Talking about all the people who should try anything twice Have you seen your mother, baby, standing in the shadow? Have you had another baby, standing in the shadow? You take your choice at this time The brave old world or the slide to the depths of declin

Got Live If You Want It! is the first live album by The Rolling Stones and was released in late 1966. Compiled as a result of a contractural obligation with US distributor London Records to deliver a new album, the band themselves were not happy with it and consequently disowned it, feeling 1970's 'Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out!' The Rolling Stones in Concert to be their true live album debut. The title of the album itself refers to their 1965 UK-only live EP release got LIVE if you want it!.
