Brown Sugar – A Wee Bit Racist Are We?

5 Jan

In a little FB game I was gonna partake in today, I found that the song that was #1 the week I was born was Brown Sugar by the Stones, a song I always liked. At first I was about to proudly post the YouTube video, till, for the first time, I read the lyrics. Never really listed to it before. Being mixed, I couldn’t help but notice the mixed reaction to this song, from a 1969 recording – thought maybe to be the first ever, and obviously long before I was born ;).

Also including a link with comments from other people who also never listened closely to the words before…
