"As tears go by": The Rolling Stones vs Marianne Faithfull


The Rolling Stones are better known for a strong beat. Yet, they recorded a few ballads. One of their best was "As tears go by":

According to songfacts

"This was one of 3 songs The Stones performed on their 1966 Ed Sullivan Show appearance, which was the first time The Stones appeared in color on a US broadcast."


This song was also recorded by Marianne Faithfull, who was Mick Jagger's girlfriend.

Here is another songfact
"The original title was "As Time Goes By." It was changed to avoid confusion with the song from Casablanca."
Which one is better? They are very different songs. However, I guess that Marianne is better looking than Mick!
