More or less unrelated, but I'm confused on the proper grammar of the song title. I always thought it was "Paint it Black", as Mick Jagger wants to turn everything black as he is depressed, presumably because of his chronic and massive impotency. However, by adding a comma in "Paint it, Black", the song suddenly turns from that of a tale of woe to that of racism: instead of crying that he has lost a loved one, Jagger now simply wants to find an African that will paint his room for him because, again presumably, he's a lazy, coked up rock singer.

Granted, the song lyrics don't support the second interpretation, but I'll just say that for this argument he had ADD and had simply forgotten the original intention of the song by the time he was singing.
