"Brown Sugar" (1971)

"Brown Sugar" appeared on the Sticky Fingers album, but the Stones debuted the song live at Altamont, the 1969 free rock concert featuring a slew of hot bands and famously marred by violence, including the stabbing death of a fan during the Stones' set. The meaning of the song is debatable, but some suggest it's about an interracial relationship or heroin addiction.
