About Mother’s Little Helper. A 1966 hit. The first ever(?) song dedicated to a pill? Hail the Diazepam (aka Vallium). The B side was Lady Jane. Both can be found on Stones' fourth album, Aftermath (UK version), their first containing only Jagger/Richards written songs. Mother’s Little Helper" Track Info. Written By Keith Richards & Mick Jagger. 12-String Electric Guitar Keith Richards. Acoustic Guitar Keith Richards.

This was the first track on Aftermath, the first Stones album with all original songs. Their earlier albums were full of Blues covers. In England, this wasn't released as a single. Stones drummer Charlie Watts said of this song in In the 2003 book According to the Rolling Stones: "We've often tried to perform 'Mother's Little Helper' and it's never been any good, never gelled for some reason - it's either me not playing it right or Keith not wanting to do it like that. It's just one of those songs. We used to try it live but it's a bloody hard record to play. More songs from The Rolling Stones. More songs with relations in the title. More songs featuring unusual instruments.

This Rolling Stones classic seems harmless, but a deeper listen actually reveals that the title is a reference to prescription drugs used by lonely housewives. Crystal Bowersox's "Mama". Dubbed "Mama Sox" by her fellow season 9 "American Idol" contestants, Bowersox recorded "Mama," an acoustic ballad saying farewell rather than giving thanks. As a young mother herself, Crystal sings passionately and from the heart. Pink Floyd's "Mother"

A Top Ten hit for the Rolling Stones in 1966, "Mother's Little Helper" was one of their best mid-'60s songs and one of their best putdown songs. As an indication of some lyrical growth at least, the subject of "Mother's Little Helper" wasn't necessarily a screwed-up girlfriend. The Stones could afford to be smug about aging at this point, being (mostly) in their early twenties and on top of the world financially and artistically. They did not suspect, probably, that they'd still be grinding it out in front of audiences when they themselves were approaching senior citizendom, or that one of them (Brian Jones) would be dead in a few years.
