"You Got Me Rocking" is a song by the English rock and roll band The Rolling Stones, on their 1994 album Voodoo Lounge. The song received remixes by Paul Oakenfold and Steve Osborne, they at least produced three mixes of the track including the notable Perfecto Mix.
Begun in early in 1993, "You Got Me Rocking" was initially a blues number; bootlegs have Jagger and Richards working the song as a slower, blues flavored ramble, with Jagger shouting the hook- "you got me rocking". Changed to a straightforward rocker in the vein of "Start Me Up", the song quickly evolved into a powerful rock single as Richards made the transition from piano to guitar. The lyrics moved to a more upbeat tone, as singer Mick Jagger presents redemption from a series of career ending instances of various professionals:
|“||I was a hooker losing her looks; I was a writer can't write another book;
I was all dried up dying to get wet; I was a tycoon drowning in debt.
The lyrics can be interpreted as an answer to the Rolling Stones' critics, who often deride the band for their advancing age. Recording on "You Got Me Rocking" lasted from mid-summer to early winter 1993, when final touches were put on. The song was released as a single in the UK in September 1994, where it reached number 23. It was also released as a single in the US but only reached a failing number 113 in 1995.
"You Got Me Rocking" is notable as it remains one of the Stones' most enduring live songs, a rarity for a late album song. The song was performed some fifty times during the 2005–2006 A Bigger Bang Tour.
