As has been noted by other critics, with "Get off of My Cloud," the Rolling Stones achieved a rare feat among pop groups: a follow-up to a huge hit ("[I Can't Get No] Satisfaction") that was both reminiscent of that hit, but almost equally good and memorable on its own terms. Like "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction," "Get off of My Cloud" has a compelling basic blues-rock riff, crunchy mid-tempo percussion, a leering Mick Jagger vocal that sounded like a catalog of social observation and complaint, and an ultra-catchy chorus. The songs were not exactly similar, though, and it's doubtful anyone asked for their money back due to confusing the two. The semi-surreal march of images probably owed something to the songs Bob Dylan was churning out in his early electric phase. It might have been songs like these that led Dylan to make his famous remark that he could have written "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction," but that the Stones could not have written "Mr. Tambourine Man." As is so often the case with such vain, mean-spirited proclamations, Dylan failed to add that the Stones could also do things he couldn't do: namely, craft backing tracks that were more insistent funky and bluesy than those of any other rock acts, Dylan included. "Get off of My Cloud" is one of those sort of tracks, even if it doesn't quite match the magnificence of its cousin "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction." No doubt its ace in the hole is its chorus, with its back-and-forth heys and yous (which actually sound rather more like heys and hees) that were ready-made for responsive crowd singalongs when performed live.
