Gimme Gimme Gimme is a BBC comedy that was first aired in three series from 1999 to 2001. It was written by Jonathan Harvey, who developed the series with Kathy Burke. The show centres around loudmouthed Londoner Linda La Hughes (played by comedienne and director Kathy Burke) and her gay flatmate, actor Tom Farrell (played byJames Dreyfus). A modern twist on the traditional "odd couple" format, much of Gimme Gimme Gimme's humour springs from its lubricious innuendo subplot, which comes from the mouths of both Tom and Linda.

“Gimme Shelter” is the opening track to the 1969 album Let It Bleed by the Rolling Stones. Although the first word was spelled “Gimmie” on that album, subsequent recordings by the band and other musicians have made “Gimme” the customary spelling. Greil Marcus, writing in Rolling Stone magazine at the time of its release, praised the song, stating that the band has “never done anything better”. The recording features Richards playing in an open tuning on electric guitar. The recording also features vocals by Merry Clayton. Lisa Fischer was later recruited to perform the song during concerts.

Michel Gondry, an Academy Award-winning French filmmaker, directed a music video for the song, which was released in 1998. The video features a sixteen-year old Brad Renfro, playing a young man escaping with his brother from a dysfunctional home and the abuse they suffered at the hands of their abusive alcoholic father, and then from society as a whole.
