How Mick Jagger Creates His Vocal Rhymes In The Rolling Stones Songs, He Explains
The official Instagram account of The Rolling Stones posted an old picture of the band’s frontman Mick Jagger and shared a quote from the iconic musician in which he explained how he came up with most of the good songs quite easily.
One of the most iconic rock bands of all time, The Rolling Stones, was founded back in 1962 by Brian Jones, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Bill Wyman, Charlie Watts, and Ian Stewart. Known as ‘one of the most popular and influential frontmen in the history of rock & roll,’ Mick Jagger has been one of the primary songwriters of the band along with Keith Richards.
Recently, the official Instagram account of The Rolling Stones posted an old black and white picture of Mick Jagger with a quote from Mick about his vocal rhymes attached to the post. In his short statement, Jagger suggested that most of the goods should be coming easily to the songwriter.
Mick also mentioned that he has seen many writers having trouble with rhymes, while he doesn’t even write in rhymes. The Rolling Stones star shared his recipe to write the iconic songs and stated that he has been writing only in prose and then rhyme it all later.
Here is what Mick Jagger stated about writing the lyrics of The Rolling Stones songs:
“‘Most of the good songs I think come very easily, that’s how it should be. I’ve seen writers struggling with rhymes and all that, and I don’t write in rhyme, I write just in prose and then I rhyme it all later.’ – Mick Jagger, 1989″
As you may know, after their various achievements fulfilled in a half of a century-long career, The Rolling Stones members were still excited to perform on stage. However, the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic impacted their ongoing ‘No Filter Tour,’ which began in 2017 with their show in Hamburg, Germany, and was due to conclude in 2020. On March 17, 2020, The Rolling Stones sadly announced that they had to postpone the North American dates for May and July 2020.
