I still think if they had chosen SAINT OF ME as the lead single off BTB, it would have been huge. A good lead off single always propels great sales, and further interest in other cuts. While having the lead off single as a dud i.e. ANYBODY SEEN MY BABY, it pretty much kills the enthusiasm from the mainstream for giving other tracks a try IMHO. I think they made big mistakes on their lead off singles since Tattoo YOU.

I agree. I have friends that listen to electronic dance music made by dj's and producers that apparently are huge but I have no idea who they are.
They've all said the dance mix of Saint Of Me goes over massive at raves and dj nights.

One could easily make the argument that if you have ROLLED GOLD PLUS and JUMP BACK on CD, you pretty much have all of their greatest hits covered. Anything after that charted very poorly on the BILLBOARD HOT 100 charts.

Something happened in the 5 years between 1989 to 1994 with stones fans or the way in which they issued singles, or a combination. They had a number 5 with Mixed Emotions, hardly a classic, and then a #94 with Love is Strong, which is certainly likeable enough if again, certainly not a classic.

As a collector, I would always make it my 'mission' to buy the vinyl 45s and even CD singles upon release, as when they eventually sold out, they were no longer reissued as catalogue items. In 1986, no problem buying the vinyls. By 1989 exceedingly difficult to find vinyls and even cd singles. This tradition continued, of being exceptionally hard to even buy the singles. For some reason, by 2005, and the release of Streets of Love on red vinyl, it became a little easier to buy a single again, but now it was really just more of a novelty item.

Also, they really did stop writing 'hit singles' for the most part in the last 20 years, but even where they did show glimpses of brilliance, (Saint of Me, Plundered My Soul), the audience no longer cared.

Well, that's the UK chartings of all the Rolling Stones singles from "Come On" to "Honky Tonk Women".winking smiley

19th Nervous Breakdown was also no. 1 on several UK charts. NME, for example. And I think Let's Spend The Night Together went to no. 2.

As I understand it,"Going to a Go-Go" was # 25 or # 26 in the U.K. and "Love is Strong" was # 14 in the U.K..

Was 'Don't Stop' really one of their greatest hits?

I think this calls the integrity of this project into question...

If we're concerned about the integrity or literal accuracy of what constitutes a 'greatest hits' record, there'd be very little on it after 1969.

...and nothing on it after 1981

That's revisionism at best.

"Plundered My Soul" is a song by The Rolling Stones featured as a bonus track on the 2010 re-release of their 1972 album Exile on Main St.. It was the first song released by the band from the new recordings, limited-edition copies of the single shelved in independent stores on 17 April 2010, in honor of Record Store Day. The single peaked at #200 in the UK Top 200 Singles Chart, at #2 on Billboard's Singles Sales and #42 on Billboard's Rock Songs Airplay. It also reached #15 on the France Singles Top 100, and remained there for one week. The music video is directed by Jonas Odell.
"Plundered My Soul" features vocal and guitar overdubs from Mick Jagger and Mick Taylor in 2010.

"No Spare Parts" is a song by The Rolling Stones, featured as a bonus track on the 2011 re-release of their 1978 album Some Girls. It is one of twelve previously unreleased songs that appear on the reissue, and features newly recorded vocals from Mick Jagger. The song reached number 2 on Billboard's Hot Singles Sales.
A music video for the song was released on 19 December 2011 and was directed by Mat Whitecross.

Well, let's polish the listing a bit to see what it really says after 1981 - that is to say, let's skip teh marginal chart out and just consider only the main UK/US charts (Billboard Hot 100 & UK TOP 100/75 Singles)

year title Billboard/UK Top Singles
1982 "Going to a Go-Go" # 25 / # 26
1982 "Time Is on My Side(Live Version)" - / # 62
1983 "Undercover of the Night" # 9 / # 11

1984 "She Was Hot" # 44 /# 42
1986 "Harlem Shuffle" # 5 / # 13
1986 "One Hit" # 28 / # 80
1989 "Mixed Emotions" # 5 /# 36
1989 "Rock and a Hard Place" T # 23 / # 63
1990 "Almost Hear You Sigh" # 50 / # 31
1990 "Terrifying" - /# 82
1991 "Highwire" # 57 /# 29
1991 "Ruby Tuesday(Live Version)" - / # 59
1994 "Love Is Strong" # 91 / # 14
1994 "You Got Me Rocking" #113 /# 23
1994 "Out of Tears" # 60 / # 36
1995 "I Go Wild" - /# 29
1995 "Like a Rolling Stone" - /# 12
1997 "Anybody Seen My Baby?" - /# 23
1998 "Saint of Me" # 94 / # 26
1998 "Out Of Control" - /# 51
2005 "Streets of Love"/"Rough Justice" - /# 15
2005 "Rain Fall Down" - /# 33
2006 "Biggest Mistake" - /# 51

Well, as we can see:

- their last "real hits", making top ten, are all from the 80's: "Undercover of The Night", "Harlem Shuffle" and "Mixed Emotions"
- their last single making Top 50 in Billboard is from 1990 ("Almost Hear You Sigh", # 50) - there have been only four appearance in Top 100 ever since; this is to say that there has been no Rolling Stones hits in America for 22/23 yaers
- there is no any top ten hits in UK. Three singles since the 80's, made Top 20 ("Love Is Strong", "Like A Rolling Stone", and "Rough Kustice/"Streets of Love"; those could be called as 'minor hits in compared to the their chart history in UK.

So I would say that it would be highly revisionist to claim that the Stones have been a hit-making band since the 80's, and their record even during the 80's isn't any remarkable compared to their past - namely, this band knows what a real hit song is all about!

- Doxa

I don't know. This "top ten" and "top 50" business seems quite arbitrary to me.

What about the "top 14" hits and the "top 51" hits?? One top 50 hit - yes but, at least 3 top 60 hits in the U.S. during that period of time.

I suppose that it depends on where one draws the line as to what constitutes a hit.

Also,it seems kind of hasty to dismiss the "Mainsteam Rock" charts in the context of modern popular music. Bands who play straight-up rock 'n' roll have had very limited success in the Billboard top ten during recent times,mostly regardless of the quality of the music. The Kings of Leon are one exception but,I can't think of many others. Then consider the fact that the band has been around since the early '60's.

What the Stones have accomplished is impressive,to me at least. Yes,they are in a winding down phase but,it doesn't seem right to say that they have had x number of hits in the last 20 years when they haven't even really made any kind of attempt at true 100% new material in 7 years. As far as that goes,judging the music that they did release,it would be more appropriate to judge the 12 year period between 1994 (Love is Strong) and 2006 (Biggest Mistake).

By the way,the original claims were no hits post-1981 and post-1969. Now,it gets shifted to some point in the early '90's.

Well, if the official chartings are not good enough for you, what can we do...

I guess the hype over the first live performances for six years in UK was enough to push the sales for "Going To A Go-Go". And I suppose still at the time a new Rolling Stones single still might gather some larger interest. They actually were still a rather hot band then.


But what is interesting that even though The Stones toured the States big time at the time, and even played "Love Is Strong" live in MTV show, teh single simply flopped (#91!). But there seemingly happened something in US music business that made it so hard for The Stones to make 'hit singles' any longer. Anyway, even I rememeber the times when the video of the song was circulating in MTV, I can't remember it being any real hit outside of that. It didn't gather some real interest by the people (outside the fan circles).

- Doxa

I remember Love Is Strong being 'all over MTV' (MTV had essentially turned into a cartoon channel at that point; music videos were on VH1) but never ever heard it on the radio. Same with Anybody Seen My Baby - which was a fantastic video I thought. Lately on any FM radio I've never heard anything past Start Me Up.

In the early 90s I walked into a nightclub and they were playing an extended version of Undercover of the Night. The dance floor was packed, I've never heard the song so loud, it was excellent. But yeah, haven't ever heard it on the radio either.

Why don't the Stones just hire some hip ad agency for their promotion
and guidence through this changing market?

The Gorilla thing with the iView app has many flops, but it all started out
with a bad concept and "stupid" design. Who's making the decisions here?

I'm very courious to see if this 50 city Gorilla stunt promo is succesful.

God,help us regarding that track list. Those are some poor choices,in my opinion,to represent the 1994 to 2005 era. That could perpetuate the belief that some people have that the Stones released mainly sub-par music during that period.

* I Go Wild or Out of Tears or Break it Down or even Jump on Top of Me would have been better than You Got Me Rocking.

* Saint of Me or Too Tight or Out of Control would have been better than Anybody Seen .... .

* Laugh,I Nearly Died or Biggest Mistake or O.N.N.Y.A. or Under the Radar or Rain Fall Down would have been better than Streets of Love and Rough Justice.

* No " One Hit ( To the Body ) " - No Dirty Work at all. At least one track should be represented.

* No " Plundered my Soul " - Weren't there 2 different mixes of this song?? That would have been a perfect opportunity to give the fans something they might not already own - by including the (slightly) alternate mix.

* No 8 Track mixes of Miss You or Beast of Burden. This would have been another opportunity to give the fans something they don't already have,in an official digital format,anyway. I know that it is not a rarities collection but,those 8 track versions are close enough to the album versions. They are basically the same - just extended by 50 (give or take) seconds.

If they wanted to go crazy and risk world-wide riots and backlash,they could have even included the alternate version of Wild Horses and the alternate version of Brown Sugar from some of the early pressings of Hot Rocks.

Just showed the album cover to my step son, who is 21, and the first thing out of his mouth was "That's stupid".

Just showed the album cover to my daughter, who is 4, and the first thing out of her mouth was "That's stupid".

This is all really very unfair to the gorilla.
The Stones are just thoughtless...

Where is Not Fade Away on the 3-CD version? That's as dire an omission as leaving off Little Red Rooster from 40 Licks, in my opinion.
