While The Sun Is Bright Or In The Darkest Night

I never cared much for the Rolling Stones, as I was raised on a steady diet of Beatles and German singer/songwriters before I came across AC/DC and The Clash.
Recently I re-discovered how fantastic Melanie's version of Ruby Tuesday is (the one from 1970, the '76 recording is lackluster shite…), so I started to go through my collection and assemble all versions I have (and then some).

Although credited to Jagger/Richards (as almost every other Rolling Stones song), Ruby Tuesday was written by Keith Richards and Brian Jones, with the latter contributing the recorder parts on the, erm, recording.

The Rolling Stones: Ruby Tuesday

Glad to see the love for Melanie. I was a little hippie-girl-wannabe who worshipped Melanie back in those days. As I recall she also did a cover of "Wild Horses" that was pretty good. Or maybe I have too many dead brain cells.

As a complete "Melanoid," I thank you for mentioning her cover of "Ruby Tuesday." Here's a link (through "yousendit") to an alternate version she recorded in 1978. It's her best! Cheers, daBratAttack
