“Get Off of My Cloud” is a song by the English rock band the Rolling Stones. It was written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards as single to follow the successful “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction”. Recorded in early September 1965 and released that November, the song topped the charts in the United Kingdom, the United States and Germany, reaching No. 2 in Australia and Ireland.
The Stones have said that the song is a reaction to their suddenly greatly enhanced popularity and deals with their aversion to people’s expectations of them after the success of “Satisfaction”. According to Keith Richards, “‘Get off of My Cloud’ was basically a response to people knocking on our door asking us for the follow-up to ‘Satisfaction’ … We thought ‘At last. We can sit back and maybe think about events’. Suddenly there’s the knock at the door and of course what came out of that was ‘Get off of My Cloud'”. In 1971 he commented; “I never dug it as a record. The chorus was a nice idea, but we rushed it as the follow-up. We were in L.A., and it was time for another single. But how do you follow-up “Satisfaction”? Actually, what I wanted was to do it slow like a Lee Dorsey thing. We rocked it up. I thought it was one of Andrew Loog Oldham’s worst productions.”
