Rolling Stones – I Think I’m Going Mad

I always liked this B side song from the Rolling Stones. The song was the B side of the single She Was Hot released in 1984. The song was an outtake from the Emotional Rescue album from a few years before. It was recorded in January-February 1979, November-December 1982 & June-August 1983 at Compass Point Studios, Nassau, Bahamas; Pathé Marconi Studios, Paris, France; and The Hit Factory, New York City.

I liked this ballad better than the A-side.

The single She Was Hot/I Think I’m Going Mad peaked at #44 in 1984. I Think I’m Going Mad is like a cross between Fool To Cry and Beast of Burden

I Think I’m Going Mad

I Think I’m Going Mad

Think I’m going mad and I think I’m going mad
Life goes by so fast, time whirls by so fast
And I drink my wine and so all the women come and go
Think I’m going mad, think I’m going mad, think I’m going crazy
All the highs and lows don’t mean a thing to me, don’t give a damn

Every season that’ll pass, think gonna be my last
I know my mind’s afloat, sometimes I feel so young and sometimes I feel so old
Think I’m going mad and I think I’m going mad, think I’m going crazy
All the highs and lows don’t mean a thing to me, don’t give a damn, think I’m going

Yeah, you want to see, you want to see all the kids all laugh
And I’m thinking, I think I’m going crazy
I think and I think I’m going crazy
All the highs and lows don’t mean a thing to me, don’t give a damn

And I think I’m going crazy, think I’m going crazy
I think I been drinking lots of cups of coffee
I think I lost my head
And I think I should be sacrificed
Think I should be put away
Save yourself pretty baby
And I think and I think I’m going
And I think I’m going mad
And I think I’m going mad
Think I’m going nuts
Think, think I’m going crazy

  1. I’m going to have to listen to that a time or two more…seems quite good. Don’t think I’d ever heard it before. I’d forgotten about “She Was Hot” too- I liked that one. I’m one of the few who seemed to like the Stones 80s material quite a bit from “Emotional rescue” to the “Harlem Shuffle.”
