Even more than the Beatles, these guys invented rock and roll as we know it.  This song is not my favorite, a little too silly, but it would be exhibit A in how this band helped open up rock music to pretty much everything.

YES~!! {#Lol}
This is absolutely my favorite Stones song, hands down. I find the rest of their songs OK I guess, but this one is something special!

Among my favorite rock drummers.  So many Stones songs he just totally anchors.  Uncanny ability to tastefully drive every song.

I remember going to elementary school in upstate NY in the sixties and they gave us all recorders and big 'music classes'! Don't remember being taught anything as fun as 'Paint It Black' though. Little Brown Jug rings a bell.

The instrumental version from Westworld is pretty awesome.

I was a little kid when this came out. I was a huge Beatles fan and not much of a Stone's guy but I really loved this one. Relentless! Seems like it was played every 15 minutes on AM radio at the time.

This follow-up to 'Satisfaction' on the 'Out Of Our Heads' LP cements them as having turned from a (really good) covers band into actual self-realized artists. Then we got a bunch of great rock n' roll. Never gets old for me.

When we moved into my present house, the shutters and front door were deep red.  A couple years later, my wife decided to repaint the shutters black.  I was told to paint the door to match.  She saw a red door and she had it painted black.

God-like? Yaaaassssssss...  On WINS 101 New York, when I was a kid, listeners voted top songs every New Year (by postcard!) and for 4 or 5 years  "Satisfaction" was #1. With that powerful knowledge under my belt and the Yankees as my team, I thought I understood firmly how the Wold worked and it was pretty damn good!
