About Connection

"Connection" is a song by British rock and roll band The Rolling Stones, featured on their 1967 album Between the Buttons. It was written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards (but mostly Richards), features vocals by both of them and is said to be about the long hours the band spent in airports. The lyrics contain much rhyming based on the word connection. The lyrics also reflect very heavily the pressures the band was under by 1967: My bags they get a very close inspection, I wonder why it is that they suspect 'em, They're dying to add me to their collection, And I don't know, If they'll let me go The song was written before Jagger, Richards and fellow Rolling Stone Brian Jones were arrested by the police for drugs. Although it was never released as a single, it is a popular live song. The song itself is built on a very simple chord progression featuring a repetitive drum pattern, Chuck Berry-like lead guitar from Richards, the piano of Jack Nitzsche, tambourine and organ pedals by multi-instrumentalist Jones, and bass by Wyman. Jagger, Jones, and Wyman later overdubbed handclaps. Jagger said in 1967, "That's me beating my hands on the bass drum."

Connection, I just can't make no
Connection, but all I want to do, is to get back to you.

Everything is going in the wrong direction
The doctor wants to give me more injections
Giving me shots for a thousand rare infections
And I don't know if he'll let me go.

Connection, I just can't make no
Connection, but all I want to do, is to get back to you.

My bags, they get a very close inspection
I wonder why it is that they suspect 'em
They're dying to add me to their collection
And I don't know if they'll let me go.

Connection, I just can't make no
Connection, but all I want to do, is to get back to you.
