From the The Rolling Stones – All the Songs book:
Another riff that came to Keith Richards during his evidently troubled
sleep. The lyrics, on the other hand, were inspired by a real-life experience.
Memories of a beautiful woman waiting to be kissed. How could I resist?
sings Mick Jagger with impeccable logic. The woman in question makes
another appearance in his life some time later. We are told that she has now
got daughters, which does not exactly support her cause. In fact, the
narrator now sees in her every fault under the sun, and in telling her so,
deploys his humor in all its misogynistic glory!
“Oh No, Not You Again,” which at certain moments calls to mind the
punkier offerings on Some Girls, was never released as a single. “Biggest
Mistake” was chosen in its place. It was, however, given plenty of airplay
by US radio stations, and on the back of that made it to number 34 on the
Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart (December 2005).
