  1. there are obviously too many choices to make a poll, but the question's pretty straightforward. what say you?

    my vote goes to "Rocks Off" with "Get Off Of My Cloud" a close second.

    You beat me. Ok, then, -Sympathy for the Devil. Not one of the billions of covers of this tune have even come close.

    My tie for first place would be---(drum roll, please)---"Time Is on My Side" and "Sympathy for the Devil."

    Honorable mention go to "Gimme Shelter," "Midnight Rambler," "Paint It BlacK" and "You Can't Always Get What You Want."

    Such as simple song, but catchy as hell.

    Runner up would be Paint it, Black.
  10. Rocks Off and Tumbling Dice.

    Sweet Virginia too.

    Exile on Main Street's such a great album.

    Some of my faves, that have yet to be mentioned:

    "Monkey Man"

    Side 3 of Exile on Main St ( "Happy", "Turd on The Run", "Ventilator Blues", "Just Wanna See His Face")

    "Sister Morphine"

    I must also mention "Rocks Off" because it is such an awesome song.

    (BTW Kid Charlemange, Keith Richards does the solo in Sympathy.)

    Are you sure?
    I always liked the idea that it was Jones who did that nervous white-mans-blues solo.
    Well, it's a smokin' solo, nevertheless. :)

    "Paint it Black" and "Mixed Emotions" are my faves, but "19th Nervous Breakdown" means alot to me why? Well, it's like this: That song was released in April of 1966. My birthdate? April 19th, 1966.

    Never cared for them, nor seen the infatuation.

    I do like how in "Time Is On My Side," Jagger's tambourine goes in and out of time. Ah, irony.
