In inspired by Marvin Gaye’s lead vocal on his hit “Got to Give It Up”,
Mick Jagger wrote this 1980 Rolling Stones classic on an electric piano and from the beginning it was sung in falsetto.
The dance beat and Bee Gees like falsetto was seen by many as a depature from the Rolling Stones sound. Even Keith Richards was not a fan of the disco-based song and it never made a Stones setlist for over 30 years.
Despite the dissension of die hard fans the song remains one of the Rolling Stones more commercially successful hits reaching #3 on the US charts.
