Ruby Tuesday By The Rolling Stones

Ed Sullivan had a problem. The Rolling Stones were about to appear on his television show and sing their new single “Let’s Spend The Night Together.” He was not comfortable with the sexually explicit lyrics and asked Mick Jagger to change them. Jagger slurred his way through the objectionable parts.

American radio disc jockeys took a different approach. They just played the B side of the single release. The song was not a favorite of the band but on March 4, 1967, it became their fourth number one American single.

Problem solved!
