Song of the Day: Rolling Stones – “Wild Horses”



Happy birthday wishes to the one and only Mick Jagger, who turns 74 years old today. This is one of the Stones’ undisputed classics, a track that per Songfacts.com originally began as a song about Keith Richards’s son Marlon and the fact Richards hated leaving him on tour, but Jagger rewrote the song, keeping only the lyric “Wild horses couldn’t take me away.” Released as a single off the Sticky Fingers album, it peaked at No. 28 on the Billboard Hot 100.
