I missed 'overplayed' but that puts their worst in the same list as their best...

yeah, feh on a "worst" list. i am in it for the love.

i editorialized a bit with the "overplayed" but it's really the only way to explain this ;-)

"overplayed" is the worst excuse to dislike a song. Change the station, get new friends, grow the fuck up.

Three Word Username, Monday, 2 April 2012 07:28 (2 years ago) Permalink

i cut "you can't always get what you want" from my ballot cuz it's overplayed (and crazy long besides), but calling it one of their worst songs seems the sad kind of insane

4/3 - 2 way tie for third place
Far Away Eyes - 12 points (4 votes, one #1 vote)
Harlem Shuffle - 12 points (4 votes, one #1 vote)

far away eyes is awesome fuk u guys

JoeStork, Monday, 2 April 2012 07:37 (2 years ago) Permalink

...ah, that's more like it. Voted for "Shuffle", but understand "Eyes". Cartoony Stones not lovable after 1968.

Three Word Username, Monday, 2 April 2012 07:38 (2 years ago) Permalink

I voted You Can't Always Get What You Want because:

  • too long
  • the line he said one word to me, and that was "dead" is ur clunky
  • Ride copied the arrangement on one of their dud singles and exposed it as unbearably feeble

My 'worst' ballot was one track and it wasn't any of these but I can get behind hating 'You Can't Always Get What You Want', it's kind of cloying and horrible. 'Far Away Eyes' is the worst thing on Some Girls but it isn't terrible, just throwaway.

Gavin, Leeds, Monday, 2 April 2012 09:50 (2 years ago) Permalink

far away eyes is essential, wtf is wrong with you people

thomp, Monday, 2 April 2012 09:52 (2 years ago) Permalink

(i don't know: it's certainly grating, on occasion, but jagger's urge to occasionally prove he's Too Smart For This Shit is key to the band, i think) (and 'some girls' is a big fat mess w/ no cohesion, so the gearshift is less of a problem than it would be in another record) (the expanded edition is awesome mind)

thomp, Monday, 2 April 2012 09:53 (2 years ago) Permalink

I didn't bother with a worst tracks because I have yet to explore the post-Tattoo You six in all their glory, but I'm glad to see "Far Away Eyes" on it.

da croupier, Monday, 2 April 2012 10:58 (2 years ago) Permalink

It was cruel of Roger to leave us on this cliffhanger.

Shouldve made a worst ballot; everything except Faraway Eyes wouldve made ir

I've never thought of "Faraway Eyes" as overplayed. I doubt that I've heard it on the radio once in the past 10 or 15 years.

clemenza, Monday, 2 April 2012 11:33 (2 years ago) Permalink

I love all of these songs (the original Harlem Shuffle is one of the best songs ever!)

gospodin simmel, Monday, 2 April 2012 11:56 (2 years ago) Permalink

^this is true, but the Stones cover is k-lame

the guy was ugly human (loves laboured breathing), Monday, 2 April 2012 12:51 (2 years ago) Permalink

i had a hard time thinking of songs for my 'most hated' ballot, ended up just challopping and putting 3 non-"Tumbling Dice" songs from Exile on there because that album's gonna be overrated as fuck in this poll

Eisbaerg Slim (some dude), Monday, 2 April 2012 12:55 (2 years ago) Permalink

I forgot to submit a most hated but eff you guys, Far Away Eyes is BOTH hilar & great!!!!.

Harlem Shuffle can eat a dick though.

Peppermint Patty Hearst (VegemiteGrrl), Monday, 2 April 2012 13:01 (2 years ago) Permalink

Charlie and Bill hold the beat real well though.

Exile in lolville (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Monday, 2 April 2012 13:03 (2 years ago) Permalink

"Far Away Eyes" was my #1, such a stinker, with its awful spoken word opening, dumb vocals, & lazy lyric. Mick thinks the joke is on us but the joke is on him, & yes I have an opinion about that.

Euler, Monday, 2 April 2012 13:21 (2 years ago) Permalink

yeah I am proud to have put Far Away Eyes on this list of shame

Flat Of NAGLs (sleeve), Monday, 2 April 2012 13:23 (2 years ago) Permalink

I'm glad I didn't submit a most hated ballot, because "Winning Ugly" would've been on it, and I've come around to digging that song. But "Rock and a Hard Place" can eat my poo. "Far Away Eyes" is kinda like the Flying Burrito Bros "Hippie Boy" to me; I don't out-and-out hate it, but I prefer the album without it.

I don't care for ^^^ it either but it's at worst inoffensive.

Exile in lolville (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Monday, 2 April 2012 14:39 (2 years ago) Permalink

I was hoping the haters convention would be over by now and we'd be rolling out the positive votes. Gotta go home at this point though, so just wanted to say it's great that these results just happen to fall in the month of the Stones' 50th anniversary (if Wikipedia is correct).

Also, if you're at a loose end, check out this week's Project Moonbase podcast, which is marking the anniversary in its usual, tongue-in-cheek style:

Johnny Fever, Monday, 2 April 2012 17:19 (2 years ago) Permalink

he said in the first or second post itt that he's on jury duty so it would be kinda patchy.

but that makes it last longer :D

Peppermint Patty Hearst (VegemiteGrrl), Monday, 2 April 2012 17:21 (2 years ago) Permalink

yeah i'm in no rush, especially since the comedy poll is still rolling out on ILE today and tomorrow. whenever you're ready we'll be here!

besides I think we still need time to put together our best horrible jagger outfits in preparation for the festivities.

I really hate the way Wes Anderson uses classic rock in his movies. Scorcese, he's ok.

I liked how in the behind the scenes footage on the Rushmore dvd, you could hear his crew listening to the Faces between setups.

Raymond Dubious Davies (C. Grisso/McCain), Thursday, 12 April 2012 03:10 (2 years ago) Permalink

Anderson used up all his good music ideas on Bottle Rocket ("Alone Again Or") and Rushmore ("A Quick One, While He's Away"). Every other movie of his has been an exercise in awkward shoehorning.

Best use of music by Wes Anderson: the Charlie Brown Christmas song in Royal Tenenbaums (Alone Again Or and A Quick One are close runner-ups)

THE SPACEMENT TAPES (loves laboured breathing), Thursday, 12 April 2012 04:44 (2 years ago) Permalink

1. "I Am Waiting," Rushmore
2. "Making Time," Rushmore
3. "Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard," The Royal Tennenbaums
4. "A Quick One While He's Away," Rushmore
5. "These Days," The Royal Tennenbaums

Probably forgetting something.

although yes "i am waiting" is the best. i love that movie (and song) so much.

flesh, the devil, and a wolf (wolf) (amateurist), Thursday, 12 April 2012 21:14 (2 years ago) Permalink

I really wish I'd thought more about voting for Monkey Man and Let It Bleed. Just because I would feel better about my ballot. And I wish I hadn't been so reluctant to show love for my favorite Exile tracks. I coulda/shoulda made Torn and Frayed my #1.

Peppermint Patty Hearst (VegemiteGrrl), Thursday, 12 April 2012 21:15 (2 years ago) Permalink

Okay, so with amateurist's ballot plus everyone's thoughtful reconsideration itt clearly "Sway" is #2

Anyway, here's Charlie. This is one of my most favorite things ever.

BEMORE SUPER FABBY (contenderizer), Friday, 13 April 2012 20:05 (2 years ago) Permalink

"worried about" you timing adds up given that it's Wayne Perkins on the solo, who also plays on "hand of fate"

will have to give b&b another try but on the face of it it's tattoo you in a walk
