So many favorite songs, I will share them one at a time. This song, Wild Horses by the Rolling Stones, was recorded in 1971.
Found many backstories about this song. Who knows which one is true. This was intersting…
Mick Jagger’s (lead singer) girlfriend at the time, the singer Marianne Faithfull, claims “Wild horses couldn’t drag me away” was the first thing she said to Mick after she pulled out of a drug-induced coma in 1969.
There are other theories as to Mick’s muse for this song, however. Jagger’s longtime girlfriend Jerry Hall in The Observer Magazine April 29, 2007, said: “‘Wild Horses’ is my favorite Stones song. It’s so beautiful. I don’t mind that it was written for Bianca.” (Not likely, since Jagger didn’t meet his future wife Bianca until 1970, which was after the song was recorded.)
Either way, I enjoy the song and I hope you do as well.
