Did you know?

The song was written as a follow-up single to the successful "Satisfaction".
The Stones have said that the song is written as a reaction to their sudden popularity
After the success of "Satisfaction".
The song deals with their aversion to people's expectations of them.
Keith Richards says: "'Get off of My Cloud' was basically a response to people knocking
On our door asking us for the follow-up to 'Satisfaction'... We thought, 'At last.
We can sit back and maybe think about events.' Suddenly there's the knock at the door
And of course what came out of that was 'Get off of My Cloud'
