“Schoolboy Blues” (aka “C–ksucker Blues”) (1970) by the Rolling Stones

“Schoolboy Blues” is the infamous song the Rolling Stones recorded to get out of their contract with Decca Records, when they were told they owed Decca one more single before their contract was up.   Again, be careful what you wish for or what you demand.  Decca, of course, were horrified by the results and never released this officially.

Objectively speaking, this isn’t quite so bad.  Musically speaking, it sounds like a rawer version of “Sister Morphine,” only with the subject matter being male prostitution instead of heroin.   This is the Ramones’ “53rd and 3rd” six years earlier … only a LOT more explicit.  So explicit in fact, that I will say this is … ahem … not safe for work.   OK, you’ve been told the tale.  Either listen or don’t listen.
