“Start Me Up” was released in August 1981, just a week
Tattoo You, to a very strong response, reaching the top 10
both the US and UK. Widely considered one of their most
infectious songs, it was enough to carry Tattoo You to #1
nine weeks in the US, while reaching #2 in the UK with solid
sales. It has been certified 4x platinum in the US alone.
critical reaction was positive, many feeling that Tattoo You
was an improvement over Emotional Rescue and a high-quality
release. “Waiting on a Friend” and “Hang Fire” became Top 20
US hits as well.
“Start Me Up” would prove to be The Rolling Stones’ last
single to reach as high as #2 in the US, while Tattoo You is
their last American #1 album to date.
