Have You Heard, today (11//6) marks 50 years since The Rolling Stones hit the top of the American charts for the second time.
“Get Off My Cloud” followed up the Stones’ first number-one U.S. hit, “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” which topped the charts in July of 1965.
In all, the Rolling Stones had eight number-one hits in the U.S. and eight in the U.K., although the eight were not all the same.
In fact, the two mentioned above, as well as “Paint It Black” and “Honky Tonk Woman,” were the only four that went to the top on both charts.
