“We are not the same persons this year as last; nor are those we love. It is
W. Somerset Maugham
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
I do not know why this song keeps running through my head. I have never been much of a Rolling Stones fan.

|"The Last Time" is a song by the English
The Rolling Stones. This was The Rolling Stones' first British
single written by
Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, although Keith Richards admitted
in the 2003 book According to the Rolling Stones that '... we
came up with The Last Time, which was basically re-adapting a
traditional Gospel song that had been sung by the Staple Singers,
but luckily the song itself goes back into the mists of time.'.
 It was the band's third UK single to reach #1,
spending four straight weeks at the top on most of the numerous UK
music charts (there was no one UK chart at the time considered to be
an absolute and definitive authority) in March and early April
1965.It reached No.2 in the Irish charts in March 1965. "The Last
Time" was recorded at RCA Studios in Hollywood, California in
January 1965. The Last Time was mixed in true stereo, but
only bootleggers have a poor quality version, and the stereo version
is noticeably shorter than the mono counterpart.
Footage still exists of a number of performances of this song by the Rolling Stones in 1965: from the popular BBC-TV music show Top of the Pops, the 1965 New Musical Express Poll Winners Concert and American TV shows including The Ed Sullivan Show, Shindig! and The Hollywood Palace. A full live performance is also prominently featured in the 2012 re-edit of the 1965 documentary "Charlie Is My Darling". The footage establishes that the distinctive guitar riff was played by Brian Jones while the chords and guitar solo were played by Keith Richards.
A fan favourite and popular song in the Stones' canon, it was regularly performed in concert during the band's 1965, 1966 and 1967 tours. It was then left off their concert setlists until 1997-98, when it was dusted off for the Bridges to Babylon Tour.
Although the song is credited to Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, Richards has mentioned that it was based on a traditional gospel song called "This May Be The Last Time", recorded by The Staple Singers in 1955.
