The Rolling Stones, "Happy" (1972)
"It was no Rolling Stones record," Keith Richards said. He wrote and recorded "Happy" in four hours during the Exile on Main St. sessions, waiting for the rest of the band to show up in the basement of the Villa Nellcote — he remembered Jimmy Miller on drums, Bobby Keys on baritone sax and that he overdubbed guitar and bass himself. Richards generally gets one song per Stones LP, and this is the one that became a hit: Number 22 in the U.S. and Number Five in France, its country of origin. "I wrote the verses of 'Happy,' but I don't know where they came from," Richards said.
