Favorite Stones song?

As a parallel to the current fave Beatles song thread…

I’ll start with She Smiled Sweetly, from Between the Buttons.

I always liked the one that says if you can’t get what you want you get rice and beans.

Tough call, but I’m going to go with Can’t you hear me knocking?

Just squeaks by Rocks Off.

I’ll go with If You Can’t Rock Me/Get Off Of My Cloud from Love You Live.

sympathy with the devil

Satisfaction, with Gimme Shelter a close second.

I guess for me it is “Sympathy for the Devil”. All my favorite Stones songs are from 1973 or before.

Gimme Shelter, hands-down.

yes, Gimme Shelter

Gimme Shelter, no question. I’d argue it’s the best rock song by any band, ever! :slight_smile:

These two have been tied for my first-place favorite since around 1980:

It’s All Over Now and Beast Of Burden

Either Angie or* Ruby Tuesday*…

Ruby Tuesday
Paint it Black
Moonlight Mile

Memory Motel

“Dead Flowers” and “Before They Make Me Run.”

She’s a Rainbow.

Another vote for Can’t You Hear Me Knockin’.

Honorable mention for Torn and Frayed.

Here’s one you don’t hear too often - Jump On Top Of Me Baby.

According to the world-famous Ponch8 Music Rating System, it is a very tight contest between #1 “She’s a Rainbow,” #2 “Paint It Black,” and #3 “Gimme Shelter.”
