50 for 50: The Rolling Stones

The concept is simple: 50 favorites, in the year that I turn 50. Tonight, we're going to start off with a biggie: Rolling Stones songs.

The thing to keep in mind here is that the list might look a bit different on any given day, and certainly the order might change a bit. The top ten, even twenty, is pretty solid. And one thing I can assure you is that the top 3 would never change.

50. Play With Fire
49. Sympathy for the Devil
48. Emotional Rescue
47. Time Waits For No One
46. Mother's Little Helper
45. Respectable
44. Luxury
43. Wild Horses
42. Under My Thumb
41. Can't You Hear Me Knocking
40. Almost Hear You Sigh
39. Biggest Mistake
38. Miss You
37. Dear Doctor
36. Moonlight Mile
35. Rocks Off
34. Some Girls
33. Waiting On A Friend
32. Sittin' On A Fence
31. Monkey Man
30. Let's Spend the Night Together
29. I Just Want To See His Face
28. Starfucker
27. 19th Nervous Breakdown
26. Beast of Burden
25. Start Me Up
24. Street Fighting Man

16. Midnight Rambler
15. Stray Cat Blues
14. Sweet Virginia
13. Doo Doo Doo Doo (Heartbreaker)
12. Shattered
11. No Expectations
10. You Can't Always Get What You Want
9. Rip This Joint

Great list. There's a natural variation with mine, but #1 is certainly in sync. Thanks.

My pleasure! I think Steely Dan might be next.
