Any songs where your opinions have shifted over time?

Even within a song itself? For example, I was always "eh" on Can't You Hear Me Knocking. Younger, I liked the first half but thought the second was garbage. I even edited the song on my own to fade out at 3 minutes. Then as I got older, I realized how @#$%& dumb I was and adore the second half. I was blasting it this morning and realized nowadays I look forward to the second half moreso than the straight ahead first. Funny how things just change.

Anyone else have similar feelings with any Stones songs?

Yes.

I thought "Midnight Rambler" was a long, boring song until I saw it live in Charlotte in 1999 on the small stage. Awesome, ass-kicking version! Loved it since.

As a kid, "Paint It Black" was just plain weird/creepy. Now I love it.

I thought "Rock And A Hard Place" was great when it came out, but quickly got bored with it.

I used to hate Country Honk as I always thought HTW is a masterpiece which would make Let It Bleed EVEN better but I sat and schooled my little 1 and a half year old daughter about the merits of the album the other day and found myself actually enjoying the song. Maybe her prescence had summat to do with it. Still think both Flash and HTW should've graced their two respective albums, would've been even better.

I LOVE Rock And A Hard Place, anger, disillusion and hopeful energy all in one bite!smileys with beer

Always, liked "Moonlight Mile," but grew to view it as a masterpiece that belongs on every compilation.

I didn't like YGMR at first but after hearing it live like 15 times I enjoy it, ha

Ah but Country Honk is closer to the original concept, or very, very close in fact.
We did not get one without the other.

Hit singles wasn't usual in the sixties anyway.

I despised and still do the studio Dance Little Sister.

' Turd of a song' - either Glynn or Andy Johns ( I think Andy.

But am really enjoying the El Mocambo Version.
There"s a lyrics version on YouTube with that soundtrack. Cool.

- Midnight Rambler – never enjoyed the studio version. Rediscovered the song for me during the No Filter tours

- She's So Cold. I actually booed when Jagger announced it was the song vote's winner in Arnheim. But in fact the song turned out to be a highlight of this great show

I find myself saying "this one took some time to grow on me" about songs a lot, but now that there's a thread about it nothing is coming to mind. WTF.

Similar thread started by Pietro just a few months ago: Stones songs you used to like/dislike, but not now?

I use to dislike the Dirty Work album when it first came out.

Now I dislike it even more but like Harlem Shuffle after seeing it live several times.
