Rolling Stones, “Paint It Black”

Set against footage from the Vietnam War. From their album, Aftermath, 1966. It’s actually about breaking up with a lover. Jagger took inspiration from James Joyce’s Ulysses, especially the novel’s theme of desperation and desolation (insert standard Doomer themes). That’s a sitar in the background. Jagger latter said that the song has a “Turkish” rhythm.
