unfortunately i have only one: sympathy for the devil. This tune is terrific! Not a big fan of the group, but love this tune.

Sympathy for the Devil
Some Girls
Far Away Eyes

This sort of question is always difficult to answer because it can depend on mood.

Honky tonk women
Wild horses
Let’s spend the night together
Brown sugar
Paint it black

Those were the first 5 that occurred to me. If I answered yesterday. Or were to answer tomorrow, no guarantee the list would be the same!

Gimme Shelter. Imagine being young, beautiful and hip in London in the late 60s, and dropping the needle on this opener of Let It Bleed.

Honky Tonk Woman. Keef, casually picking the opening notes on open strings while taking a drag from his cigarette, then sticking it back between the strings before playing the first riff. Genius.

Angie or YCAGWYW. Mick finds another dimension in his voice.

Brown Sugar. Simply doesn’t get a place in todays politically correct world, but great nonetheless.

Wild Horses. I just like this one. Some great covers. Sundays on the Buffy soundtrack, for one.

Paint it Black. Trying for something different, but a classic nonetheless.

Sympathy for the Devil. Hoo hoo!

(I can’t get no) Satisfaction. Classic riff.


Lived in Canada for over 50 years now, but early childhood was in the UK as the Stones and Beatles were becoming hugely popular. We had to declare in the schoolyard, and I was in the bad boy Stones camp. Get off my cloud, little by little, the singer not the song, it’s all over now…, and who knew they would later Exile themselves to France and create the superb Main St. (While mostly pissed out of their minds). And don’t get me started on Sticky Fingers …
