Written in 1965 and originally a hit for Chris Farlowe, "Ride on Baby" is like a scorched-earth version of "Under My Thumb." Jagger drops breakup bombs ("By the time you're 30, you'll look 65/You won't look pretty and your friends will have kissed you goodbye") as Jones earns his pay, playing marimba, harpsichord, koto and rhythm guitar.
