Pick your 1973-1979 Top Ten Rolling Stones songs
Posted by: Stoneage ()
Date: September 18, 2019 18:11

Realized this would be impossible if we included Sticky Fingers
and Exile so I went for the albums after "The big four". Which are:

- Goats Head Soup (1973)
- It's Only Rock 'n Roll (1974)
- Black and Blue (1976)
- Some Girls
(1978)

Here are my ten picks:

- Angie
- Winter
- If You Can't Rock Me
- It's Only Rock 'n Roll
- Time Waits For No One
- Miss You
- When The Whip Comes Down
- Beast of Burden
- Shattered
- Before they Make Me Run


Which are yours?

Through The Lonely Nights

It’s Only Rock N Roll

Time Waits For No One
Fingerprint File (LOVE the grimy original speed version)

Miss You

I prefer pretty much everything on Tattoo You to Black And Blue, and Tattoo You is pretty much a 70’s album. I like “Separately” too, which from what I gather was written in France but recorded in Jamaica.

I would have liked to hear the IORR stuff live with Taylor, Hopkins, and the horns. Hell, I would have liked to hear some horns on IORR period.

You're right, Travelin Man. The RS seventies would really include every album from Sticky Fingers to Tattoo You. But to choose only ten songs out of those...

Heartbreaker – One of the most interesting and unique songs in the Stones catalogue…although it occurs to me that if Jagger had gone solo in the 70s he probably would’ve produced a lot of songs like this (especially if he collaborated with Billy).

Winter – Jagger’s performance is so convincing here you wonder why he’s not a better actor. And Taylor hits all the right noble and sad notes.

Through The Lonely Nights – ‘Making the Lonely Pay For Me…’ The woman in the song prostitutes herself to lonely men and gives the proceeds to her man/pimp, the song’s protagonist. That’s not a scenario that would normally move me but nobody could pull off decadent and seedy like the 70s Stones.

Time Waits For No One – I’m not sure I particularly like this song to be honest – it certainly doesn’t make me wanna dance or cry. It’s just a brilliant piece of music that demands to be admired.

Dance Little Sister – If I could rewrite the Stones history, I’d put this one on Exile..and Heartbreaker on Some Girls…cuz that’s where they sound best. While I blame Jagger’s half-assed lyrics for much of the band’s demise since 73 this is one of the (few) songs where the lyrics needn’t be profound or even googled – the song is effectively a chant, an invocation of that primal urge to ‘dance.’ I don’t think I’ve ever bothered to find out what Jagger is saying in the verses to Dance Little Sister.

Memory Motel – From around 1985 to 2005 if I happened to find myself next to a guitar I’d pick it up and start playing Memory Motel. Just a memory today though.

Miss You – It hasn’t aged particularly well but the Stones brought no shame on themselves by hopping on the disco bandwagon – quite the opposite in a commercial sense. I always thought the Stones could’ve released a respectable version of ‘Do ya think I’m sexy?’

Before They Make Me Run – It’s kinda tinny and twangy but when Keith gets personal the results are usually pretty cool and this is no exception.

Beast of Burden – The ‘pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty such a pretty girl’ sucks donkey balls but the intro and opening line pretty much booked Keith’s ticket to heaven.

Shattered – It’s almost a little too chitty chatty to call it a proper song – it’s dreadful live - but the ‘Flatter, Flatter, Flatter, Flatter, Flatter, Flatter, Flatter
Pile it Up, Pile it High on the Platter’ kickass ending is aces.

That's pretty tough as the Stones has some many great songs in the 1970s. I'd go like this:

Angie
Memory Motel
Ain't Too Proud To Beg
Star Star
Just My Imagination
Miss You
100 Years Ago
Time Waits For No One
Hand Of Fate
Lies

Far Away Eyes
Beast of Burden
Memory Motel
Ain't Too Proud To Beg

Angie - still the best song in the world about a short love in your live you never forget.

Till The Next Time - well on of my Stones Top Ten ovearll- your heart and soul this pearl for many live situations.

Time Waits For No One - unbelievable Mick & Mick - vocals and guitar taking me away and up there on my dream-clouds. Making me sad, hopeful, euphoric and stteld all in the same time.

Memory Motel - same league, also deep and melancholic, teaching me as a teen 1976 that it is ok to be sad sometimes.First Stones song I know to sing.

It´s Only Rock'nRoll - so much Stones, and in 1977 useful to sing loud when I was surrounded by Punk at school and elsewhre.

Miss You - first irritated in 1978 when I heard it in my local Disco. The quick a fan of it, cause it was a new good touchdown of my band in that era.

Best of Burden - just great! Great groove, great lyrics, great mic and great Charlie.

Faraway Eyes - funny, good to sing along, showed me how wide is their span.

Winter - Mick at his best. Great guitars. Perfect to listen to in...winter!!!

Heartbreaker - was blown away by it when I heard it on Made in the Shade. I was 16 and it fits my teen-aggressions and fears and energy.
