Miss Amanda Jones

Between the Buttons (USA version)
Side 2, Track 5
"Miss Amanda Jones" – 2:47

What the hell? Who gave the green light to an actual rock and roll song on a Rolling Stones album? I hope that person lost his job.

"Miss Amanda Jones" is a throwback to earlier Stones albums – a straight-ahead Chuck Berry-style rocker, with some great rhythm work by Keith. But what the hell is going on in the mix? The vocals get really loud for the bridge (0:54).
