Your Top 3 Stone Songs and Why..?


Recommended Posts

Something fun, perhaps swap some song / stories around them.

1) Midnight Rambler - Being from Boston and just a kid of 12 when it came out I started to like it, and purchased My first Stones Album; Get Yer Yah Yahs Out
2) Brown Sugar after completing Walk For Hunger walk at 13, I  arrived on the Boston Common to hear opening chords of Brown Sugar was being played live by a local band .
It stuck with me.
3) Honky Tonk Women - Always a fun one when The Stones do it live. It was the first song I sang with my buddies cover band.

I was thinking Monkey Man and Sympathy are in mine too. 

 

Monkey Man because I discovered late in my life. My brother put it on a mix tape for me when I was nearly 30. Not sure how such a rocking song didn't make it on the radio more.

 

Sympathy because it's Sympathy, right? Also, the history major in me appreciates it.

 

My third might be Waiting on a Friend. Weird choice? I was a product of the MTV age and liked that video much more than Start Me Up. Also, I became a big jazz fan in my 20s and had the chance to see Sonny Rollins live, so when I learned that he played the sax solo on that song, it propelled my love for it.

Winter (This song doesn't have any Keith on it and it almost sounds like a Van Morrison track, but I love the mood and feeling of it. Used to play this song in one of my old bands.)

Rocks Off (One of the greatest album openers ever. Pure, exuberant Rock and Roll.)

Dead Flowers (A friend and I played guitars and sang this one so many times one late drunken night, we actually had a neighbor yell at us to play another song.)

 

Bonus:

Gimme Shelter (Merry Clayton's vocals on this just kill me.)

Sympathy for the Devil (Always loved this song, and that guitar solo at the end always gets me too)

Re :Can't You Hear Me Knocking\

Heard Warren Haynes do a nice cover of this in Boston 2 weeks ago.

Jason Isbel. Covered it in an Encore last week as well.

Nice homage to Charlie Watts. 

The song does have a great groove,
