ESSENTIAL SONGS BY THE
The Rolling Stones show no signs of stopping. The group’s latest album reached #1 around the world. Mick Jagger just became a father again- at the age of 73!
This countdown looks back on highlights from the band’s recorded output, spanning the years 1964 to the present day.
The Stones' remake of "Route 66" was included on the band's 1964 US debut album. 'The Rolling Stones' later had the subtitle 'England's Newest Hit Makers' added to its name.
ONE HIT (TO THE BODY)
"One Hit (To The Body)" was a single lifted off the 'Dirty Work' album. In 1986, the song cracked the American Top 30.
The flip side of "Get Off My Cloud" was "I'm Free". Both tracks were featured on the 1965 'December's Children (And Everybody's)' album, although the latter had already been on the UK pressing of preceding LP 'Out Of Our Heads'. In 1990, The Soup Dragons scored a hit with a remake of the same song.
The 1973 album 'Goats Head Soup' contained the rock track "Star Star". It was initially entitled "Starfucker". The track possesses some of the Stones' most explicit lyrics.

Electric blues guitarist Eddie Taylor wrote "Ride 'Em On Down", a song covered on the 2016 release 'Blue & Lonesome'.
SHE WAS HOT
The 2nd single released from the 1983 'Undercover' album was "She Was Hot". The following year, the song charted well in some European countries.
The lead single from the 1989 Stones LP 'Steels Wheels' was "Mixed Emotions". It proved popular enough to top the Candian chart. The single also reached #35 in Britain and #5 in the U.S.A.

Rufus Thomas wrote and released the original version of "Walking The Dog". The Stones' cover was featured on the band's 1964 self-titled debut LP.
