The Rolling Stones ‘Street Fighting Man’ official lyric video

On 24, Oct 2018 | In News | By Yes Please

Yes Please Productions made the Official Lyric video for The Rolling Stones ‘Street Fighting Man’. Released to celebrate the 50th Anniversary reissue of their 1969 LP ‘Beggars Banquet’.

‘Street Fighting Man’ is one of the Stone’s most politically charged songs, written in the wake of anti-war and student demonstrations around the world. We acknowledged this in the video by using imagery of protesters, alongside footage of the fighting in Vietnam. Inspired by a cover for a Danish version of the single from 1968, we were taken by the contrast of the vibrant colour and political imagery. Taking this idea further we created an vivid and energetic edit, capturing the spirit of unrest which feels as relevant today as when the track was written. Watch the video here.
