The Contenders

11 Goodbye - Night Ranger
12 Angie - The Rolling Stones

@Billyv - I read it on the internet about one year ago in an article where all interpretations were listed: Keith's daughter, David Bowie's wife, etc., but they were all rejected by the band members. So this one was left as the most possible interpretation relying on what Keith Richards said about his addiction and the songwriting process, and that he said several times the song wasn't about a person. - Metal_Treasure

Many people think this is a break up song but Keith Richards actually wanted to say goodbye to heroin. He said Angie was his heroin addiction (he wrote the lyrics in a Swiss rehab). - Metal_Treasure

I've read some comments by Richard about the song, but never a reference to heroin addiction or recovery. I wonder what your source for this is. (Not arguing a factual basis, just wanting to learn the accuracy) - Billyv
