No "Shattered" On 'GRRR!'???

...I'm really surprised at this omission!

Yes--I know--but I am giving the 3 CD version to some people for Christmas who don't have many--or any--Rolling Stones albums and I was hoping that it would have all the hits on it. Why "Respectable" from 'Some Girls' instead of "Shattered"? "Respectable" wasn't a hit--no one I'm giving the set to has ever heard of it.

It makes no sense. This could have been a really good career retrospective for the "newbie." It just makes it less than perfect...oh, well...you can't always, etc. ...

Respectable was a charting single in the UK.

"Shattered" reached #31 in the US.

"Respectable" charted at #23 in the UK.

Yeah they even made a video for "Respectable" but not for "Shattered".

Maybe you should just give your friends SOME GIRLS?

No--I wanted to give them an overview from '63 'til now. Plus, the song "Some Girls" from 'Some Girls' precludes me from giving that album as a gift. These are, in some cases, younger family members. That line in that song would not sit well.

They made a video for Shattered, too, no? Or is the NYC-video just a fan video?

There is no official Stones video for "Shattered" so I'm not sure what you're referring to.

They did 3 videos for SG: "Respectable", "Miss You" & "Far Away Eyes".

There's not even an official video for "Beast Of Burden".

Ronnie's guitar break is the only good thing on Shattered. The song is an attempt of a grown up man who tries to sound like a teenager.

Maybe (obviously is!) just me, Respectable is great, Shattered is awful, I have simply NEVER understood the admiration for it. Just a noise, and LIVE is crap!

Shattered is probably the worst one they did this side of Brian Jones. Never understood why this song ends up on compilations and still to this day steel valuable live preformance time from other classic or non classic songs....
Well, if they have to put in a toilet break in the set, then this is the one

Thank God it's not on the basic GRRR!

Why would Shattered be on a greatest hits compilation!!!!!!!!!! Never understood the appeal of songs like this? All Down The Line included.

"Ronnie's guitar break is the only good thing on Shattered. The song is an attempt of a grown up man who tries to sound like a teenager."

-i think 34 year old rockstar is nearly teenager(mick&keith ).Anyway,34 year old rockstar is not grown up man!

Im not rockstar but feel myself more teenager than grown up(33yrs)

And shattered is horrible song.absolutely worst in some girls.

There's nothing that rocks about this song. terrible guitar sound. Terrible melody. Shadoobee? really? sounds like a 2nd grade sing along.

I know! "Something Happened To Me Yesterday" and "Stupid Girl" are so much more sophisticated!

The same "terrible" guitar sound as on tracks like Wild Horses live in 75, Fingerprint File, Some Girls, Imagination and others...

Or you could use it as an example of the great songs they did not include... Give it a positive spin!
