September 3, 1973: The Rolling Stones released "Angie"
Easily one of the most heartbreaking songs ever written, "Angie" is a guitar-driven ballad lamenting a fading romance. There are many rumours surrounding 'who' the song is written about (David Bowie's first wife, Angela, actress Angie Dickinson), but Keith Richards' daughter, Dandelion Angela, had just been born, so the song is named after her.
The song's meaning, however, has no relation to Richards' daughter, as "Angie" in the lyrics actually refers to (can't believe I just found this out) heroin and his efforts to end his dependance on the drug. The sentimental song was almost entirely written by Richards, which is a little surprising considering his tough guy Jack Sparrow persona.
