'Doom And Gloom' marks the first time that Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood have been in the studio together for seven years. The single was recorded in Paris and produced by longtime Rolling Stones producer Don Was, who has worked with the band on five previous albums (Voodoo Lounge/ Stripped/ Bridges To Babylon/ Licks Live/ A Bigger Bang), with the radio mix produced by Jeff Bhasker.
I had a dream last night I was piloting a plane And all the passengers were drunk and insane I crash landed in a Louisiana swamp Shot up a horde of zombies But I come out on top What's it all about? Guess it just reflects my mood Sitting in the dirt Feeling kind of hurt
All I hear is doom and gloom All is darkness in my room And through the light your face I see Baby take a chance Baby won't you dance with me
Lost all the treasure in an overseas war It just goes to show you don't get what you pay for Battle to the rich and you worry about the poor Put my feet up on the couch And lock all the doors Whats that funky noise? It's the tightening of the screws Sitting in the dirt Feeling kind of hurt
