“I Can’t Get No (da, da, da) Sa-tis-fac-tion!”

“I Can’t Get No (da, da, da) Sa-tis-fac-tion!”

Author: Joy Kosta | Source: HCI 

When Mick Jagger first sang that lyric in 1965, The Rolling Stones probably didn’t foresee it would become embedded in classic rock, let alone resonate with talent today, regardless of one’s generation.
