I don't feel trying to come up with 10, merely because I'm feeling lazy this morning. But I do truly love a song I'm not supposed to -- "I'm Free."
I know that it's supposedly arrogant for a filthy rich rock star to write such a song (in his great book, Stanley Booth continually bashes the Stones for including the song in the set lists), but I can't help it.

Andrew Thames (Andrew Thames), Friday, 28 March 2003 14:50 (nineteen years ago) link

For some reason, I am constitutionally unable to include most of the hits. Overexposure, I suppose. Thus:

"Route 66"
"The Spider and the Fly"
"2000 Light Years from Home"
"She Smiled Sweetly"
"Gimme Shelter"
"Monkey Man"
"Sway"
"Moonlight Mile"
"Torn and Frayed"
"I Just Wanna See His Face"

No fair. I never even got to "Faraway Eyes" or "Worried About You."

Lee G (Lee G), Friday, 28 March 2003 15:00 (nineteen years ago) link

First, the hits:
"The Last Time"
"Gimme Shelter"
"Jumpin' Jack Flash"
"Miss You"
"Brown Sugar"
Now, the (sort of) obscure ones:
"Cool, Calm, Collected"
"Torn & Frayed"
"All Down The Line"
"Before They Make Me Run"
"Citadel"

"Sway" rules with a mighty hand. Alejandro Escovedo's cover is also pretty darn good.

rogermexico (rogermexico), Tuesday, 13 September 2005 04:44 (seventeen years ago) link

"Sway" is probably my favorite Stones tune, it really is.

Just Mick's phrasing on the whole thing "THERE .. MUst ,, Be WAYS" or coming out of the solo, "hey HEY!!! one DAY I WOKE UP too Fiiiiind". plus Charlie is just freakin' phenomenal across the whole thing. I mean, it's probably the best studio performance by one of the great rock drummers.

Stormy Davis (diamond), Tuesday, 13 September 2005 04:48 (seventeen years ago) link

I may have mentioned this elsewhere, but every time I hear the first bars of "Sway" I think "my god, has any album by anyone ever had a stronger opening than this?" and then I realize that Sticky Fingers opens with "Brown Sugar." Foolz.

Other things about "Sway" that rule:

- "cone-uh-uffer-SMAAAHL"
- Nicky Fucking Hopkins
