The party must go on. The lyrics are nasty (everyone and their disapproving father knew what “And I’m trying to make some girl” meant), Keith’s hook is down-and-dirty and the Jagger swagger established the Stones as the bad-boy British Invasion alternative to The Beatles (girls wanted to date John, Paul or George; they wanted to “make” Mick, Keith and Brian – no “or” about it). It even snagged the second-place spot in Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time list in 2011. MTV gave it heavy spin in ’84, but the song failed to connect with the masses. You may have heard it more than enough for one lifetime, but it'lll always be there for a new, adventurous generation to discover - and that is a very comforting thought indeed. Hal Ashby used the “Aftermath” track for the opening of “Coming Home”, while Quentin Tarantino scored Los Angeles coming to neon life in the third act of “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”. Greatest Hits 1962-2012 (5-LP Boxset + 36 Page Booklet) by The Rolling Stones - Vinyl LP (2012) for $145.95 from Pop / Rock Rolling Stone : 4.5 stars out of 5 -- '[T]he best and most comprehensive collection of the band's high points available.' I mention this because Scorsese has used the leadoff track to “Let It Bleed” in three movies, but the ultra-commercial director who’d give us “Home Alone” first used the LP recording in “Adventures in Babysitting”. The lyrics are flowery nonsense, but at least the band sounds semi-sincere in their sentiment. - Order by Phone 1-800-336-4627 It’s a great rocker, but, let’s be honest, Wyman’s working the cymbals way too hard. This is also the last song Meredith Hunter heard in his too-short life. It’s just another iconic opening guitar riff (this one from Jonesy), and a rambunctious groove that picks up steam behind that great harmony on “Here it comes…” There were so many great artists testing the boundaries of a new musical genre in the mid-1960s, and this is one of those perfect songs that materializes while you’re noodling around with your chums in the garage. “Making love and breaking hearts/It is a game for youth.” Jagger was shacking up with Jerry Hall at the time, and the record shows that he was not faithful to her thereafter, but it’s a touching moment of clarity nonetheless. The album features two new songs titled " Doom and Gloom " and " One More Shot ", which were recorded in August 2012.

One reading of the lyrics suggests that Jagger’s “character” has carnal knowledge of the young woman’s “heiress” mother. According to Rolling Stone, this is the second greatest rock song of all time (behind Bob Dylan’s “Like a Rolling Stone”, which is so effing twee). This is the closing song on the uneven “Goats Head Soup”, and it’s an old-fashioned Stones rocker that only works in uncensored form (“You’re a starfu**er”). Purists will stick with the band’s 1966 “Aftermath” recording, which allows Brian Jones’s marimbas and Ian Stewart’s Hammond organ to pop, but the orchestral version nudges the tone from bittersweet to almost tragic. And unlike The Beatles, the Stones managed their internal disputes and kept churning out new music into the 2000s. It’s not a terribly deep song, nor is it meant to be. Released in early 2013 for no strong reason -- it loosely ties into the Stones' 50th anniversary bash, begun in the holiday season of 2012 and extending into the entirety of 2013 -- The Very Best of the Rolling Stones 1964-1971 is a good collection of 16 basics from the '60s and early-'70s Stones. This is a lightweight single with a helluva hook – a hook so irresistible it turned The Verve’s “Bitter Sweet Symphony” into a hit thirty years later. Rolled Gold: The Very Best of the Rolling Stones is a compilation album by The Rolling Stones released without the band's authorisation by its former label Decca Records in 1975. In which Mick Jagger confesses he’s tired of chasing tail and boozing it up with the boys. This countrified rocker, with its casual allusions to heroin use, makes giving up sound like a party. And a quick gender switch turns this into a feminist or a gay anthem. When I’m writing a song that I know is going to work, it’s a feeling of euphoria. Bill Wyman’s ambling bass line gives the song its half-crocked charm. A lot went down in between those records. “Honey, I missed your two-tongue kisses/Legs wrapped around me tight/If I ever get back to Fun City, girl/I’m gonna make you scream all night.” It goes without saying that Jagger isn’t planning to take this girl to a haunted hayride. It’s the “Mama Said Knock You Out” of its day. Revolver (1966) by The Beatles / 4. This is the kind of experimentation that would lead the band astray throughout much of the next decade, but it’s pretty hard to miss with this A-plus personnel. I love this song.

That’s soul chanteuse Merry Clayton belting out “Rape, murder, it’s just a shot away” over the chorus. This song was meant to be. “I want a song with brick walls around it, high windows and no sex.” This was Stones’ manager Andrew Loog Oldham’s exhortation to Mick and Keith in 1964, and the result was this bittersweet ditty that became a hit in the UK for Marianne Faithfull. Yet another Stones track we take for granted. The first two versions are terrific, but they don’t have Ian Stewart’s Vox Continental organ drifting under Keith Richards’s opening guitar lick. These are the best Songs in the World. Nicky Hopkins synth-and-piano work here is perfection. Metallica-Unforgiven and Rolling Stones She's a rainbow. I understand “Goats Head Soup” isn’t “Exile on Main St.”, but any album that contains “Angie”, “Starf***er”, “Coming Down Again” and this all-timer deserves a little more love than it typically receives. Another classic Stones track with two distinctly different versions. It's all the hits you know by heart: " (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction," "Get Off of My Cloud," "Paint … This track changed lives. As is the case with most Stones songs of that era, Jones was the special sauce (in this case, he played the recorder). Get Off of My Cloud Lyrics: 7.

But did you know it was almost recorded as a reggae song? Always free! A little outside inspiration never hurt. So much cowbell. This fairly vague and innocuous song about yearning turns into something special when the bridge hits. Only The Rolling Stones would release a virtually unplayable single with a B-side that should’ve been the A-side. “You know marrying money is a full-time job/I don’t need the aggravation/I’m a lazy slob.” Absent this lyric, you might think the Stones were tearing into the welfare class in England and the U.S. It’s a deeply sarcastic song about class disparity that plays with renewed vigor today. The Rolling Stones are Rock 'n' Roll legends-- released to coincide with the band's 50th Anniversary, Grrrr!Greatest Hits is an excellent overview of The Rolling Stones' entire career beginning with their first single, a cover of Chuck Berry's "Come On," and culminating with two tracks recorded especially for this collection: "Doom And Gloom" and "One More Shot". The original “Exile on Main Street” track is sprinkled with… whatever dust made that historic session go. This is mostly a Keith composition, but Mick sings it like it’s his. The special sauce here is Clydie King, Venetta Fields and Sherile Matthews; the Stones could strike a honky-tonk vibe here and there, but this is essentially the mission statement for the album. It’s a song about a cad threatening a reliable hookup with abstention. They weren’t (and they eventually paid out to his estate), but, to their credit, they made “Love in Vain” their own with an adventurous arrangement that includes Keith on slide guitar and Ry Cooder working wonders with the mandolin. Perhaps it’s a cautionary song about spending your whole life waiting rather than seeking. “Send me dead flowers by the U.S. Mail.” Not a problem nowadays! It’s the poet’s version of “Turn the Page”. That opening riff! It’s an artistic failure, but there are a few great songs on it, including this wildly expansive track that lets Brian Jones show off his musical versatility. The title track is nutty, but this straightforward rocker redeems the entire endeavor. Brown Sugar Lyrics: 8. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967) by The Beatles / 2. A last-call ballad for the ages, this single off the underrated “Black and Blue” finds a troubled Jagger looking for comfort from lovers and friends, all of whom tell him he’s a “fool to cry”. The lyrics describe a funeral procession for someone close to Jagger (“I see a line of cars and they’re all painted black/With flowers and my love, both never to come back”), but there appears to be no specific, real-life inspiration for the song – which is amazing because it’s hard to think of a song more direct and shattering in expressing grief. Though The Valentinos’ take has a little more bounce to the ounce, the young Stones tear through the song with wild, blue-eyed abandon. As a song about interracial sex, it’s awfully primitive.

It’s a song about you-know-what, and it’s also, for people who aren’t hugely gifted in the singing department, a fairly easy song to nail at karaoke. It’s pretty standard balladry, but there are some uncommon flourishes (particularly that ghost vocal track) that set it apart. The Stones are wi...

What if I told you Chris Columbus beat Martin Scorsese to “Gimme Shelter” by three years?

Jeremy Smith is a freelance entertainment writer, and the author of "George Clooney: Anatomy of an Actor". This is the Stones’ brand of sentiment. Jagger’s lyrics are a stinging evocation of on-the-skids New York City in the late ‘70s (“My brain’s been battered/Splattered all over Manhattan”), and it’s all conveyed with blasé insouciance. They were incorrigible. The track keeps building in intensity until the horns kick in and the revelries are renewed. It’s ragged, boozy blues-rock with what might be Jagger’s most soulful harmonica riff. This song has calm music, makes you happy when you're listening it. Though it just missed hitting the top of the Billboard Hot 100 upon initial release, if you ask a rando to name a Rolling Stones song that isn’t “Satisfaction”, they’ll probably say “Jumpin’ Jack Flash”.

Billy Preston rips this sucker open with a clavinet riff that means business, and Jagger roars with socially conscious outrage about the NYPD murdering a young man. “Heartbreakers/With your .44/I want to tear your world apart.” That’s the good stuff, Mick. You can’t fault the band for stretching on the mixed-bag LPs in between “Exile” and this, but it sure is nice to have the boys (Jagger, Richards, Wood, Wyman and Watts) doing what they do better than any band in rock-and-roll history. That tinny guitar lick provides a slightly off-key prelude to the unique pleasure of listening to Keith Richards sing. First off, it’s a better song. Sonny Rollins’s tenor saxophone solo soulfully accentuates the hang-out groove. In This Article: The Rolling Stones pose for a portrait on their "Satisfaction" album cover. “It’s down to me/The way she talks when she’s spoken to/Down to me, the change has come/She’s under my thumb.” The Stones’ lyrics can get pretty problematic at times, but the narrator of this song seems comically cocksure about his control over this woman.
