“(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” is a song by the English rock band The Rolling Stones, released in 1965. It was written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards and produced by Andrew Loog Oldham.

The song was first released as a single in the United States in June 1965 and also featured on the fourth studio album of the American version of Out of Our Heads, released that July. “Satisfaction” was a hit, giving the Stones their first number one in the US.

The song is considered the greatest song the band ever recorded. In 2004, Rolling Stone magazine placed “Satisfaction” in the second spot on its list of “The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time”, while in 2006 it was added to the Library of Congress National Recording Registry.

    The story is that Keith woke up in the middle of the night in a hotel room in Florida in 1965, with the basic riff in his mind. He turned on his cassette recorder, played the riff a few times, then went back to sleep. He completely forgot about it until he stumbled across the recording a week or two later. Thus, Keith says that no one composes new music, you simply download it.

    Keith is obviously lost in time, or, maybe he was just there, at that moment, imagining the advancement of technology.
