My Life's Soundtrack Part 33 - Let's Spend The Night Together by The Rolling Stones

When this song first came out our Top 40 station, some genius at WIXY 1260 in Cleveland, edited the chorus to say, "Let's spend the to-night-gether." I had never heard of a song getting "cleaned up" for radio airplay before! I think I liked it even more because "grown-ups" thought it was too dirty. Back in the Beatles vs Rolling Stones days, I remember guys actually taking sides. You were either a Beatle (conformist) or a Rolling Stone (rebel). I chose to be a Rolling Stone! Most of the garage rock bands of the 1960's were heavily influenced by these guys, too.
