"Ruby Tuesday"

OK, more Stones: This '66/'67 Keith Richards composition about a free-spirited girl was based upon a simple melody written by Brian Jones for the recorder. To this day he cannot recall whether he wrote it about his then girlfriend Linda Keith or a nameless groupie - gotta love the guy! #1 U.S. and #3 UK coupled with A-side "Let's Spend The Night Together". Top 10 hit for Melanie in '70. #303 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Song Of All Time.

Yesterday's answer: "Twist And Shout". THAT'S when the Beatles were The Beatles!!!
