Rolling Stones Friday: "Tell Me (You're Coming Back)"

"Tell Me (You're Coming Back)" was recorded in February 1964 and became the first US single of the Rolling Stones written by Jagger-Richards. It reflected the band's ability at a very early point in their career to write original songs that were very different than the blues and R&B material that they were covering on their first records.

I love the early Stones stuff and this one is no exception.  The sad almost resigned feeling at the beginning soon gives way to a bouncier pop song. Certainly a sign of things to come in the Stones' evolution. It hasn't been performed live much at all through the years, so we'll just feature this lip synched version of the recorded version from the Mike Douglas show:
