Marianne Faithfull :: Stoned


After first hearing her sing, Rolling Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham described Marianne Faithfull as “an angel with big tits.” The rest of the world would soon come to know her via her take on early Stones material, and in an early tabloid sense, her very public relationship with Mick Jagger.

Listen below to Marianne’s latter-era reworking of a couple of Stones covers, and if you haven’t yet, be sure to check out Faithfull’s vocally ravaged 1979 LP, Broken English; an old favorite that presents an entirely different side of the once Sixties pop chanteuse.

  1. Lovely clip. She recorded “Sister Morphine” first, though; it was the Stones who “covered” her version (though of course it’s a Jagger-Richards song).

  2. Actually, the Stones ripped off Marianne Faithfull and were required to credit her as a writer in the re-release. She was there. She was instrumental in its writing and composition.
