The Rolling Stones

She Said Yeah

Composed by Roddy Jackson / Sonny Bono

Song Review by

The opening salvo of the Rolling Stones' late-1965 classic December's Children, "She Said Yeah opens the album with a burst of rock energy that can only be described as the birthing of what would be later called punk rock. Furiously scrubbed, distorted electric guitars and a murky atmosphere move the song past the listeners' ears with a truly out-of-control fury. Mick Jagger's frantic vocal renders the lyrics virtually indecipherable in many places, yet the lustful message comes through loud and clear. In a minute and a half, the Rolling Stones define their territory and then burn it to the ground.
