The Rolling Stones - Angie - Official Promo



"Angie" is a song by the rock band The Rolling Stones, featured on their 1973 album Goats Head Soup.


The song is credited, as most Rolling Stones songs are, to both Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, but it is acknowledged to be almost completely written by Richards. "Angie" was recorded in November and December 1972 and is an acoustic-guitar-driven ballad characterizing the end of a romance. The song's distinctive piano accompaniment, written by Richards, was played on the album by Nicky Hopkins, a Rolling Stones recording-session regular. The strings on the piece (as well as on another song, "Winter") were arranged by Nicky Harrison. An unusual feature of the original recording is that singer Mick Jagger's vocal guide track (made before the final vocals were performed) is faintly audible throughout the song (an effect sometimes called a "ghost vocal").


Released as a single in August 1973, "Angie" went straight to the top of the US Billboard Hot 100 and reached No. 5 on the UK singles chart. The song was also a No. 1 hit in both Canada and Australia for five weeks each and topped the charts in many countries throughout Europe and the rest of the world.





Lyrics


Angie, Angie

When will those dark clouds all disappear

Angie, Angie

Where will it lead us from here

With no lovin' in our souls

And no money in our coats

You can't say we're satisfied

Angie, Angie


You can't say we never tried

Angie, you're beautiful

But ain't it time we say goodbye

Angie, I still love you

Remember all those nights we cried

All the dreams were held so close

Seemed to all go up in smoke

Let me whisper in your ear

Angie, Angie


Where will it lead us from here

Oh, Angie, don't you wish

Oh your kisses still taste sweet

I hate that sadness in your eyes

But Angie

Angie

Ain't it time we said goodbye


With no lovin' in our souls

And no money in our coats

You can't say we're satisfied

Angie, I still love you baby

Everywhere I look I see your eyes

There ain't a woman that comes close to you

Come on baby dry your eyes

Angie, Angie ain't good to be alive

Angie, Angie, we can't say we never tried



Songwriters: Keith Richards / Mick Jagger
