I Am Waiting

Aftermath (USA version)
Side 2, Track 4
"I Am Waiting" (Mick Jagger/Keith Richards) – 3:11

Another one of the songs the Stones did trying to sound like the Beatles. That is a cute melody in the verse, but these kinds of songs were never convincing to me. I mean, it's not "Lady Jane", but still – it's not "Get Off My Cloud" either. There aren't too many bands that could get away with a dulcimer – the Stones aren't one of them. Some nice percussion work taking place on this track – sounds like Charlie overdubbed some toms throughout.
