To my fourteen year old brain they were the best group ever and this album was every thing I love in music . It was their trip into Psychedelia and I loved it. I thought 2000 light years should of been an a side and not a B. We’ll see what you think . “Fab” video too.

The Ablum Their Satanic Majesties Request was my favourite albums I loved it…sadly those “in the know” were very sceptical.. 1967 I’d met hubby a huge Beatles fan and from that day to this he could not and cannot see what I see in the Stones!

2000 Light Years from Home” is a song by the English rock band the Rolling Stones, released on their 1967 album Their Satanic Majesties Request.Written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, it also appeared as the B-side to the American single “She’s a Rainbow“, and charted as a single in Germany.

Mick Jagger reportedly wrote the lyrics in Brixton prison following his conviction on drug charges in June 1967. The song was recorded by the band at Olympic Studios during July and September 1967. The working title of the instrumental backing was “Toffee Apple”. Brian Jones performs prominent accompaniment on Mellotron.

The number was regularly featured during the Stones’ 1989–90 Steel Wheels/Urban Jungle Tours; until 1997, when “She’s a Rainbow” was also added to the band’s stage repertoire, it was the only track from Satanic Majesties that the band had performed in concert. For the first time in 23 years, The Rolling Stones played “2000 Light Years from Home” on 29 June 2013 at The Glastonbury Festival. Info from wiki.

Rolling Stones the magazine said : Their Satanic Majesties Request, despite moments of unquestionable brilliance, put the status of the Rolling Stones in jeopardy. With it, the Stones abandon their capacity to lead in order to impress the impressionable. They have been far too influenced by their musical inferiors and the result is an insecure album in which they try too hard to prove that they too are innovators, and that they too can say something new.

Sun turnin’ ’round with graceful motion
We’re setting off with soft explosion
Bound for a star with fiery oceans
It’s so very lonely, you’re a hundred light years from home

Freezing red deserts turn to dark
Energy here in every part
It’s so very lonely, you’re six hundred light years from home

It’s so very lonely, you’re a thousand light years from home
It’s so very lonely, you’re a thousand light years from home

Bell flight fourteen you now can land
Seen you on Aldebaran, safe on the green desert sand
It’s so very lonely, you’re two thousand light years from home
It’s so very lonely, you’re two thousand light years from home
