Re: Vote for your favourite Rolling Stones' track - the final!

Polls be damned, Monkey Man and Live With Me are still the best Stones tracks!

Of those listed here, I would rank them like so:

Gimme Shelter
Paint It Black
Sympathy for the Devil

All three songs are incredible.

Re: Vote for your favourite Rolling Stones' track - the final!

I think my personal top 3 would be:

1 - Gimme Shelter
2 - Beast of Burden
3 - Paint It Black

Sympathy for the Devil is great, but not as great as these.

Ah, I am in the losing camp. Gimme Shelter was an odd song for the time, though the singers and other musicians then were added to touting bands to add that sound when needed.

Wow! Paint It Black was leading by a vote when I posted this and Gimme Shelter has garnered all the new votes ever since.

Gimme Shelter - Merry Clayton puts this one over the top, and I mean that in a good way.

Question Re: Vote for your favourite Rolling Stones' track - the final!

Is Gimme Shelter being used as a theme song for some TV show or something? It's drawn all the votes in the past year!

I'd guess it's been used in more movie soundtracks and played on the radio more than the other 2.

I think it's in every Martin Scorcese movie. It's also easily the best song of the three, and my favorite Stones song.

It's Merry Clayton, I tell ya. Goosebumps!
