Ghost town for the lyrics

Angry for the vibe and the build up jam in the second part

LIAGT is far ahead for me. Angry is slowly winning me over, but upon first listen Ghost Town grabbed me in a way that Angry never did.

Really enjoy both. LIAGR still sounds good today. Angry though would get my vote - the song, particularly the second half, is just such Stones groove magic, it is irresistible.

Many of my colleagues (non Stones fans, mostly casual music fans) have all heard it, the press event was on most every news channel and curiosity sent them to YouTube for the video. Reaction overwhelmingly positive. "So that's the roll in rock'n'roll" one lad said- that Start-Me-Up-like roll, the space between notes, the bass/drum rhythmic goodness.

I like Ghost, but I love Angry.
So, Angry it is.
It just put a big smile on my face. It brings me joy. Not care so much for the lyrics. Its vibe is wonderful.

Ghost Town, for all the musical reasons stated by MM2000 above, plus the lyrics of the verses.

~"Love is Strong"~

Angry by a mile.

Here’s my attempt at ranking the singles since Steel Wheels (this excludes songs issued with the reissued old albums). This is actually really difficult to do!!

1. Love is Strong
2. Angry
3. You Got Me Rocking
4. Anybody Seen My Baby
5. Mixed Emotions
6. Out of Control
7. Don’t Stop
8. High wire
9. Almost Hear you Sigh
10. Saint of Me
11. Ghost Town
12. Rough Justice
12 Rock and a Hard Place
13. Doom and Gloom
14. Biggest Mistake
15. Streets of Love
16. Sex Drive

Lop off 14-16, and that's a pretty solid greatest hits drawn just from singles.

Angry is very reliant on Jagger's expressive vocal melody line. If you take away his vocals the music itself is a bit bland.

Ghost Town has a nice sophisticated groove thanks to Charlie and Darryl, and a more interesting melody too.

Would've loved to hear Charlie play Ghost Town live in concert! thumbs up

I share these sentiments. I really enjoyed "Ghost Town" upon its release and I still do. "Angry" has grown on me a bit but generally remains just ok to my ears.

Angry. Big riffs and sweet choruses. Heard it all before but enticing me enough. The Rolling Stones are here to stay.

The hot chick in the video is a thorn in my eye, though.

Great list, though I believe you accidentally repeated #12, and left out the singles for "Terrifying", "I Go Wild", "Out of Tears", "Rain Fall Down" and "One More Shot" (so, 22 tracks in total if we exclude the deluxe releases - but another 3 singles if we include those from B&L, bringing the total to 25). Where would these fit in on your list?

Angry far superior.
Live version of Ghost Town better than studio version.

Agree, I thought Ghost Town was ok when I first heard it, but was much more impressed when I heard it live.

Still like Angry better.

BTW, apart from the music I have a soft spot on the Ghost Town video. All of the Japanese street scenes edited in are from Osaka, my hometown. They hit homegrinning smiley
