During the final night of their three-night stand in Chicago, the Rolling Stones invited Taylor Swift on stage as their guest vocalist for the evening. And for the song choice, they reached far back into their catalog, all the way to 1964.

“As Tears Go By” was, as Mick Jagger said from the stage, “one of the first songs that Keith and I wrote.” It’s a song they also chose at the time to give first to “someone else…a young lady,” Jagger continued. He’s referring of course to then-17-year-old singer Marianne Faithfull (the Stones themselves recorded it a year later).

Last night (June 3), though, it was another “young lady”–the 23-year-old Swift–who took a turn on the melancholy ballad, dancing delicately around the United Center stage with Jagger as she sang.

Afterwards, Taylor shared her excitement with her Twitter followers, posting photos and writing “never in my wildest dreams”:

And this wasn’t the first time on the Stones’ 50 & Counting Tour that they invited a country singer on stage. This past Friday in Chicago, Sheryl Crow was the group’s guest; before that, Carrie Underwood appeared in Toronto and Keith Urban guested in L.A.

Upcoming stops on the Stones tour include Montreal, Toronto and Boston. Keep watch on the group’s Twitter account for news of upcoming guests.
