2. This is a rare Stones song with a dominant bass line. Jagger and Billy Preston came up with the basic track. Stones bassist Bill Wyman said: "The idea for those bass lines came from Billy Preston." 
L-R: Bill Wyman, Billy Preston, & Mick Jagger
3. When this song hit the charts other rockers felt safe entering the disco waters, particularly Rod Stewart  who went disco with "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy?" after hearing The Stones get away with it.
