FlinterFile: The Rolling Stones- Undercover Of The Night
In 1983, the Rolling Stones released one of their few political songs. Mick Jagger, who wrote the song, was particularly inspired by the book Cities of the red night, which was about government repression. Together with the corruption in Chile and Argentina, which the US supported, it made a very political song. They brought in Chuck Leavell, who played the keyboards and was in the Allman Brothers Band, put a lot of echo in it (which was difficult) and had a hit: number 9 in the US and number 11 in the UK.
