The Rolling Stones: Satisfaction (1965)

Rock ’n Roll

The Rolling Stones and a young Mick Jagger [born in 1943] sing (I Can’t Get No) “Satisfaction” on Shindig! (September 16, 1964 to January 8, 1966; ABC-TV). The show was hosted by Jimmy O’Neill, a disc jockey from Los Angeles.

The song, with its catchy and memorable lyrics, contains a few clear meanings, including frustration with societal and sexual mores, but at the end of the day it is a rock song with the three most famous notes in rock history and an energetic Jagger doing what he does best. Other live concert versions can be viewed here, here and here, the last on the Ed Sullivan Show (1948–71; New York City; CBS-TV), which many families watched on Sunday evenings. Enjoy.
