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 issued "Dandelion" with "We Love You" on the flip side in 1967. In Britain, the disc climbed to #8 and peaked at #14 Stateside.
CAN'T YOU HEAR ME KNOCKING
1971 saw the release of the 'Sticky Fingers' album. That LP contained the song "Can't You Hear Me Knocking". At over 7 minutes, it is its longest track.
ROCK AND A HARD PLACE
One of the tracks lifted as a single off 'Steel Wheels' was "Rock And A Hard Place". On the U.S. chart, the song climbed to #23 in 1989.
"Little T&A" is a song where Keith Richards handles vocal duties. The track is featured on the 1981 album 'Tattoo You". It was a leftover from the 1979 sessions for the previous 'Emotional Rescue' LP.
BACK STREET GIRL
The UK version of the 1967 album 'Between The Buttons' included the ballad "Back Street Girl". It was added to the American pressing of 'Flowers'.
The Stones refreshed the band's trademark sound on the 1997 album 'Bridges To Babylon'. "Gunface" is the highlight track.
SITTING ON A FENCE
"Sitting On A Fence" was a previously unreleased song recorded by the band in 1965 that wound up on the 'Flowers' compilation album 2 years later in the USA and even later in Britain. In the meantime, it was issued as a single by another group named Twice As Much. Stones producer Andrew Loog Oldham took on the same role on the cover version. The disc peaked at #25 in Britain.
Mick Jagger and Keith Richards co-wrote "Sister Morphine" with the former's then partner Marianne Faithfull. The latter released her version as a single in 1969. Jagger produced this cut. A version by the Stones was included on the 1971 album 'Sticky Fingers'. Initially, Faithfull was not credited for her co-write. This has since been corrected.
YOU BETTER MOVE ON
In 1964, The Rolling Stones unleashed its 1st E.P. The release featured 4 remakes by the band. Among them was a cover of the Arthur Alexander song "You Better Move On". The track was included on 'December's Child (And Everybody's)' one year later.
UNDERCOVER OF THE NIGHT
The single "Undercover Of The Night" preceded the release of its parent album 'Undercover'. Issued in late 1983, the song peaked at #11 in the U.K. The single was a Top 10 hit in America.
