In 1965, as Otis Redding was covering "Satisfaction," the Stones cut a version of this Otis classic (originally recorded in 1964 by Memphis soul man O.V. Wright). But where Redding's version is plaintive, the Stones' is driving and overheated, with Jones' and Richards' frenzied strumming and Jack Nitzsche's ascending organ backing Jagger, who sounds more like a stalker than a dream date.
