Rolling Stones - Dandelion (stereo)




Fer Abra
0:30 John Lennon and Paul McCartney as backing singers of the Rolling Stones in 1967 no less. This song and We Love You are absolute historic pieces.
Jonathan Stilley
One of the more underrated songs in the Stones' catalog.
Natalie Angelo

I thought the Stones psychedelic songs were over criticized.  This sounds great, as do a lot of the songs on Satanic Majesties Request.
Joseph Obenauer
This song was playing on the radio, I was cruising down the Meadowbrook Parkway In a 1966 MGB convertible. black exterior and red leather interior, top down, my older brother Greg let me drive his car down to Wolf' Sporting Goods store down there in Rockville Centre. Some lacrosse-related need. The car was small & nimble and a breeze to steer. I was 17 and I was, I thought, on top of the world.

Brian's magic on oboe
glenn h Friedmann
Massive.... a wonderful record and song... the harpsichord help distinguish this one from all others records being played at the time... Brian.....
Carole Clark
Best part: Brian on oboe.
shannon bolden
Lennon and McCartney in on this number. As well as the other side of the single 'We Love You'... Good stuff.
Sylvain0008
Love the Stones psychedelic stuff like this one, She's a rainbow or 2000 light years from home. It doesn't really matter if they were influenced by the Beatles or not. I think that each band influenced each other. And don't blame me, i'm a big Beatles fans as well.
Devin Ian Schramm
Includes background vocals from 1/2 of The Beatles (Lennon/McCartney) easily one of the most unfairly obscure Stones gems from their prime.
Richard 3365
I swear The Stones are the band with the most deep-cuts I know. Apart from their famous big hits, the more you get into them the more you discover little gems like this that, for some reason, are not as famous as they should.
Dries Van Dongen
Oboe solo by Brian Jones...

Compare this to todays music.

Beautiful use of the sitar in this great early Stones song....
Tommy Pwood
I remember listening to this in the early 70s it was still in rotation like other greats......what the heck happened...getting old.
Mike Hand
The Rolling Stones - Dandelion ( Stereo ) Such a wonderful tune .
magprob
At 61 years old, having listened to this song my entire life, almost, I find it to be a staple I need to boost my well being from time to time.
david hill
Folks should love Dandelions. Quit spraying Round-Up on them and make Dandelion wine instead. Great song, exceptional sound quality
Rob Hollander
Unfairly forgotten Stones tune. Although the Stones unearth different deep cuts with each tour, they've never revisited this or "We Love You."
Love Hippies
dandelion 1967,sublime

stones for life, thanks for all the great songs
John Reynoso
Of course Mick and Keith would deny the Beatles but hey they're the "Bad Boys" of rock
John923T
Great song 1st heard it on AM radio in 67' I was 12 and this was such a great tune, I never wanted it to end. The photos of Brian and the group are superb to say the least. The transition of the group from young MODs to a full Rock & Roll group is evident in the photos as it was many at that time, progression sets in when they became more successful. My favorite group, sad about Brian Jones, Bill Wyman bowed out gracefully, Mick, Keef', & Charlie (still original members going strong) with past Mick Taylor & present Ron Wood they still are fantastic. ✌️2 ya

AWESOME !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOVE IT :)))

Any ad preceding any Stones song should be a federal crime.
Pete Feges

Forrest George
Prince or pauper, beggar man or thing Play the game with ev'ry flow'r you bring Dandelion don't tell no lies Dandelion will make you wise Tell me if she laughs or cries Blow away dandelion One o'clock, two o'clock, three o'clock, four o'clock chimes Dandelions don't care about the time Dandelion don't tell no lies Dandelion will make you wise Tell me if she laughs or cries Blow away dandelion, blow away dandelion Tho' you're older now its just the same You can play this dandelion game When you're finished with your childlike prayers Well, you know you should wear it Tinker, tailor, soldier, sailors lives Rich man, poor man, beautiful, daughters wives Dandelion don't tell no lies Dandelion will make you wise Tell me if she laughs or cries Blow away dandelion, blow away dandelion Little girls, and boys come out to play Bring your dandelions to blow away Dandelion don't tell no lies Dandelion will make you wise Tell me if she laughs or cries Blow away dandelion, blow away dandelion
Barry Brodsky
not only were Lennon and McCartney there for backup, but legendary poet Allen Ginsberg was in the control booth conducting with his Shiva beads and Tibetan oracle ring!!! What a session!!
Galaxy Center
Mick McCartney & Paul Jagger! ;-) Superb song. Which instrument Brian couldn't play?
Roy Mullins
One of the of IF NOT the Best Stones Jams ever... peace
Danny Football
One of the best songs from the stones
Derek Leaberry
For being a very unpleasant person, Brian Jones was very talented. Great song.
EJ JE
my favorite Era of the Stones
Marie Gilmartin
I LOVE THIS ! Not heavy deep or moody JUST LIGHTHEARTED AND HAPPY
Beverly Fleetwood
the very beginning...we know!
Janine Boguslawski
Love this since ima kid
George Penwell
The background vocals and harmonies could very well be The Beatles not to mention much of the music and the french horn solo. But ask Mick or Keith and the would say that they were never influenced by nor owe The Beatles anything. If there had been no Beatles there would never had been the Stones. They'd likely be Lorrie drivers, clerks or homeless junkies. Adequate song though.
LarryRickenbacker
Such an under-rated gem, celebrating the birth of Keith's first child. So help me, but this may be Charlie's finest moment, especially the outro that sounds like a fireworks display.
Deborah Harris
Love this.
Stella Ercolani
Song is so unique...
Bob Nyswonger
Love, love love Charlie's drums on the coda....
Giova Italia
even though this was the "B" side of the 45 release, it still did better than the main release
Paul Varga
At this time the Stones were writing great songs like this while the Beatles made crap like Sgt. Pooper. And Tragical History Tour lp's.

LES STONES QUI FONT DU BEATLES !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
John Jarou
one of their best.
Ethan Hill
Fcuk thr BEATles. This song and the others are gems gems gems gems.
volcommerce
This song is about satanic sacrifice. Dandelion will make you wise (give you pleasure) Dandelion don't tell no lies (Dead) Tell me if she laughs or cries (Suffer/Trauma) Blow away Dandelion (Ritual sacrifice)
kvernon1
...and what an amazing collection of photos of the Stones!  Most of these I've never seen before.  Well done!
Jack Meoff
The baroque keyboard riff when Jagger sings "Dandelion will make you wise" might be my favorite moment in the entire history of the Rolling Stones. It fits in by not fitting in. Even in the most beautiful harmonies, the Stones always have to add a little bit of dissonance. It's like if they painted the Mona Lisa they'd have to scratch her at least once.
RoyalJelly
Lennon and McCarthy are singing backup vocals on this B side, and on the A side of the single, “We Love You”, which sounds a bit like a parody of the Beatles.
Richie B
Great, catchy bit of fluff from the Best Band Ever. Flash was just around the corner, getting them back to being who they are: Nasty, gritty rockers. F*** these girly songs, like this and Ruby Tuesday, which are great songs but not what makes them the best ever.
Ethan Hill
Better than the Beatles by several flower gardens.
Andy Thomas
Summer '67 was along hot summer! Everyday a new revelation would burst out of my newly acquired transistor radio. I remember hearing Arnold Layne get it's first airing on Radio Caroline at least a week before it was released! They played it to death, which clearly played a big part in getting it in the charts.

Mark Williams
This song is referring to Keith Richard"s daughter who was 6 years old at the time.
Buttermilk32
I loved "We Love You" as it is nearly perfect for its time. I also loved "Dandelion" and still have my original single 45. I always felt "Dandelion" needed more work, not on the composition, but on the recording. But it's a moot point, it is a classic.
Paul Thomas
the evolution of hippies into crusties is to kick the dandelions to sow the seeds!
Tim Bruce
One of hundreds of excellent Stones/Jagger songs. On top for 50+ years. Best musical act in history.
Thomas Neville
As long as the stones have been around, the handful of years they were doing this was by far their best stuff.
Joaquin Peck
Mick;a Leo(represented in astrology by the Lion) and in those days called a Dandy therefore Dandelion!

drums are too prominent in the mix and just sound bad.

Tell me if she cries...
Kevin Dolan
I've been studying this song for years, and it is definitely inspired by the Debbill....all songs by the Rolling Stones are the Debbill Bobby Boucher!!!

This song is about a chick who gives BJs.

I may have been a toddler when this song came out, but I love it nonetheless. The Rolling Stones was one of the rock-and-roll groups that transitioned the English-speaking world from the DooWop music of the 1950s to the psychedelic rock-and-roll sound of the 1960s and beyond.
Stotle
It's funny that this charted while other songs of theirs that did not chart are their most popular (sympathy for the devil, you can't always get what you want, gimme shelter)
Phil Murphy
this a great song...so unlike the Stones.....it is really about groupies who hung around the boys on their tours...their wives knew nothing about it.......but if the girlfriends are an indication IT WAS message to them
papawx3
Check out the OLD picture at the 0:25 mark in the video; you get to see ALL of the Stones in a VERY rare picture {Ian Stewart is at the far right shaking gourds}. Not many pictures this early as Ian left the band as a player in 1963.
Charlie Battis
good song remember as a kid
Donovan Psicodélico

Noe Berengena
(1:38) Just look at those mugs. Aunt Jessie's mother always made a sour face and uttered a colorful Southern profanity about dogs on the lawn when she saw pictures like that one. But I like this song.

Love the tongue: I heard Mick say that they chose it from Kali, a blood licking deity.Top that.
Chris Baker
This is actually my favorite Stones song. I still remember the first time I heard it, I was in my bedroom between 12:30 and 1am. It was on WMYG. It's a great one.
