What is the most criminally underplayed great song?

The board has had threads on warhorses, and threads on songs we wish would be played more. I’m not asking here for songs that would just be fun, like “We Love You,” or “She Smiled Sweetly.” And I’m not asking for rotation songs that get played occasionally, or good songs like “Love Is Strong” that should come out more often.

What one undeniably great Rolling Stones song do you thing has been criminally underplayed?

My answer is “No Expectations.” The Setlist site says it’s only been played 20 times, and twice in the past 16;years.

Your answer?

Lady Jane.
Worried About You.
Connection.

Out Of Time could be a stadium anthem!

YES!
That song should have been on Rolling Stones 2 (or Rolling Stones Now ...). Such a shame.
I add Child of the Moon winking smiley

It is fantastic...and like Flairville said...it could indeed be an anthem .

It does however have a funny kind of time signature & tempo that could easily fall apart if everybody wasn't paying attention winking smiley

I would take whatever they choose aside the usual 19 + well known stuff serbed as "rarities" (dead flowers, like a rs...)

What's rapidly becoming evident is that they now need to commit to a further ten years of touring in order to get through all these requests.

So, Mick, Keith, Charlie, Ronnie...

..if you did have any retirement plans...forget it !

I would love to hear them play "Mother's Little Helper" with Jagger's touting 'what a drag it is getting old' bit, lol....would also be cool to hear "The Last Time" and "Hang Fire". So many others I could add to this list as well.

I don't think there are any. Maybe some from Exile and Sticky Fingers. But there are criminally overplayed songs though. That's for sure.

interesstingly enough: Songs from the Some Girls album are much overprepresented in the song vote:
Beast of Burden
3x Just My Imagination
5x Respectable
Shattered
4x When The Whip Comes Down

But only Beast of Burden won…

What does “criminally underplayed” even mean?

Surely a song cannot be underplayed, criminally or otherwise, if it has never been played live.

Quite so ...I don't think we need to be pedantic .

[By my calculations they will now be touring until about 2035 to fit all our requests into the spare slots between the Warhorses. grinning smiley]
