The Rolling Stones: “Angie”
ALBUM: Goats Head Soup
WRITERS: Mick Jagger and Keith Richards
Topped the Billboard Hot 100.
“Angie,” the lead single from the Stones’ 1973 Goat’s Head Soup album, is an interesting example of how the Mick Jagger-Keith Richards songwriting team sometimes operates. Jagger explains. “I think Keith wrote, he wrote one word, and he said, ‘Angie,’ and I think it was to do with his daughter, she’s called Angela. And I just wrote the rest of it.”
Mick Jagger celebrates his 73rd birthday today.
