Ev'rybody's Gonna Be Happy

Sorry for the non-Stones content. I need to get it out of my system periodically.

The Kinks
"Ev'rybody's Gonna Be Happy" (Ray Davies) – 2:16

Released in March 1965, it was the last of the Kinks run of great rock and roll singles before they went into a more contemplative (i.e. boring) direction. The whole thing is a distressingly sloppy mess of cymbals, handclaps, and rhythm guitar, and kicks eighteen kinds of ass.
