Paint It Black
"Paint It Black" (originally released as "Paint It, Black") is a song by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, and first released as a single on 6 May 1966. It was later included as the opening track to the US version of their 1966 album, Aftermath.
The song "Monterey" was subsequently written in tribute to the
group's experiences at the festival, and proved to be one of the new
band's biggest hits. The lyrics describe the atmosphere of the festival
and some of the notable musicians who played, including The Byrds, Jefferson Airplane, Ravi Shankar, The Who, Hugh Masekela, The Grateful Dead, and Jimi Hendrix,
as "young gods" with music "born of love" and "religion was being
born." The band described a scene at which "children danced night and
day", and "even the cops grooved with us." "His Majesty Prince Jones"
referred to Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones, who was an MC at the event. Before the ending of the song, Burdon quoted the Byrds song "Renaissance Fair": "I think that Maybe I'm Dreamin'".
